For Wallpaper Wednesday's theme we are using stripes. Striped wallpapers in one form or another have always been popular. They can be hung horizontally or vertically and make a wall, or a room, seem longer or taller. Here are my 5 current favourites.
Tuesday's 5 a day theme is 'Kids', more specifically younger children. Gone are the days when it was hard to find a unique wallpaper that pleased both child and parent...
As some of you will already know, today is the start of International Wallpaper Week. As you may also know, wallpaper is my passion and so i thought i would spend the week sharing my current favourite papers. I've limited myself to 5 a day, with a different theme each day.
Monday's theme is 'Wow Factor' and these really give 100% WOW!
Fast, Easy Paint Straining
PaintNetz are a quick and easy alternative to a sieve (Or a pair of tights!).
They are paint strainers / filters which grip to the container you are using and allow easy removal once done. They are available to fit anything from smaller 1L kettles right up to 25L scuttles.
Features at a Glance:
I used the 1L Paint Strainer Medium – Fine (black coloured mesh). Although it says for a 1L paint kettle, I used it with the Wagner 1300ml Click and Spray paint holder and it still held perfectly. I usually use a plastic sieve for this, which I balance on the top and hope it doesn’t tip whilst the paint is poured. With the PaintNetz, there is no such worry. It grips the container well, leaving both hands to pour the paint with confidence. I was straining emulsion paint and it made the job faster and simpler.
The PaintNetz slipped off easily after use and took 2 minutes to rinse under the tap, ready for next time. I’m converted!
Medium-Fine mesh filter is BLACK
Extra Fine mesh filter is WHITE
Sizes available are 1L, 2.5L, 15L and 25L
