Tip of the Week

To repair cracks in sheet rock or plaster before painting, try this: Run a bead of paintable caulk along the crack, then smooth it out with a paint brush dipped in soapy water. It doesn´t take much soap, but the more water you use, the smoother the repair will be. Let it dry well before painting. This is not a permanent repair, but it might get your security deposit back.
