in one room. As your budget allows. This approach is less expensive and less
time consuming to go back again several times in the same room before
renovation. The floor plantake time to create a new floor plan diagram. This
does not need to be a professional illustration. Only a sketch of the basic
ideas. For example, if you are finishing your basement. Show the location of
internal walls. Appliances, fireplaces, lighting, bar. Fine jewelry shelving or

then soak up the paint with the cat litter.
If you really feel that
stripping the surface isn't necessary then you should simply give the surface a
really thorough clean with sugar soap and water, and then sand it lightly to
give a good surface for the fresh paint to adhere to.
The first thing you
need to do of course is to turn off the water supply. You may be able to isolate
just the sink or you may have to turn off the water for the whole house. Turn
the water off then turn on the taps to run out any water that is still in the
