Mounting squares can easily hold a few pounds and can be quickly removed without damaging your wall. Stick four squares altogether, one in each corner of your frame to mount your picture properly on your wall. One important aspect of doing home improvement projects is measuring. Three must-have, measuring tools for projects are measuring tape, a ruler and a level. The measuring tape allows you to get dimensions of space and of the parts you may use.A ruler allows you to measure and create straight lines. A level allows you to make sure a surface is flat and not inclining or declining. Never neglect an electrical system upgrade when you are making home improvements preparatory to selling your house. Older houses are woefully unequipped for the demands of modern appliances and electronics. Even recently-built homes may lack the power systems that the latest gadgets require.Installing a fully up-to-date electrical service will make your home stand out to potential buyers. If you are unable to pick a paint color because you are not sure how the colors will look in your desired room, purchase a small amount of paint in different colors to test out on the wall. Having a larger color swatch to look at and evaluate in your room's lighting can help you to make a decision.The paste may expand and crack, so you can apply a little more paste if needed. When dry, sand away any excess until the dried spackle is flush with the wall. Then paint the wall any color you desire. Small rooms can look dark and dull, but this can be changed. Allow light to filter in. Do some window cleaning so they sparkle, then open your drapes. When incorporating light, rooms look much larger, increasing the value of your home.
