What Houzz contributors are saying:
For this reason, it is extremely important to have the primer shaken professionally at the store immediately prior to use, and then continue to mix it well throughout the process. If you own a stirring attachment for an electric drill, now’s the time to use it! If not, shake, shake, shake it yourself every 30 minutes or so. If the primer is not mixed properly, the iron particles will sink to the bottom of the can and some painted areas may be more magnetized than others. Bummer.
Regardless of the paint color, it seems to be a rite of passage to plaster tween and teen walls with posters, pennants and other mishmash items. But tacks, staples and tape can wreak havoc on paint and drywall, and all of the visual details can feel chaotic. Solution: Designate certain walls as collage walls and put up large-scale bulletin boards, burlap-covered foam core or cork tiles (available in hardware and art supply stores) to protect the underlying walls and create areas where anything goes.
