WITH WARM WEATHER JUST AROUND THE CORNER, YOU MAY BE THINKING OF ADDING A LITTLE COLOR TO YOUR HOME, WITH PAINT.  BUT, YOU DON'T HAVE TO BE A PROFESSIONAL PAINTER, IN ORDER TO GET RESULTS LIKE ONE.  ACE HARDWARE HAS SOME HANDY TIPS FOR YOUR NEXT PAINT PROJECT:  FIRST, BE AWARE THAT PREPARATION IS 90-PERCENT OF THE JOB.  THEREFORE, BEFORE YOU START, MAKE SURE THAT YOU HAVE THE RIGHT TOOLS ON HAND--INCLUDING HIGH-QUALITY ROLLER-COVERS AND BRUSHES.  ALSO, REMEMBER THAT--JUST LIKE HUMID WEATHER CAN MAKE SOMEONE'S HAIR TURN FRIZZY--WATER-BASED PAINTS DO THE SAME TO NATURAL-BRISTLE BRUSHES.  THEREFORE, USE A SYNTHETIC BRUSH, WHEN YOU USE LATEX PAINT.  NATURAL BRISTLES ARE, ON THE OTHER HAND, BEST FOR MOST OIL-BASED FINISHES--INCLUDING VARNISHES AND STAINS--BECAUSE THEY LEAVE FEWER BRUSH-MARKS.  WHEN IT COMES TO WHICH KIND OF PAINT TO USE, LATEX IS BEST FOR NON-METALLIC SURFACES, INSIDE OR OUT--LIKE WALLS OR CEILINGS; EGGSHELL FINISHES ARE IDEAL FOR LIVING ROOMS; AND, FOR KITCHENS AND CHILDREN'S ROOMS, SEMI-GLOSS IS A PERFECT CHOICE--BECAUSE IT LOOKS GREAT, AND CLEANS UP EASILY.  FOR MORE GREAT PAINTING IDEAS AND TIPS, VISIT YOUR LOCAL ACE HARDWARE STORE--OR "ACE-HARDWARE"-DOT-COM.
