Project Steps


Happy New Year from Refashionably Late!  If you haven't seen my posts from the past couple of years, let me introduce myself!  My name is Ruthie and I have been blogging about turning our house into a home for about 3 years.  Refashionably Late inspires readers to beautifully decorate and refurbish their spaces on an everyday budget without compromising the look.

I would love for you to please subscribe to my Newsletter for weekly DIY projects & ideas!  I’d love to get to know you and answer any questions you may have.  You can also follow along on Pinterest, Instagram, & Facebook.

Step 1

Today I wanted to share with you how to set up your HomeRight PaintStick EZ-Twist for some good old wall painting!  The PaintStick EZ-Twist is great for walls and ceilings.  It allows you to paint at a speedy pace with no roller tray, no drips, and no mess!

Step 2

I'm participating in the $100 Room Challenge.  The rules are simple...you transform one room, in one month with $100!  I decided to makeover our hallway upstairs in our home.  We have done some projects within the past 4 years to it but it has never felt complete.

Step 3

Hallways are a hard place to decorate and I wanted to give this area some character.  So, I decided that I wanted to install some board and batten.  I've looked at so many tutorials online and I think I'm going to create mine with MDF boards.

Step 4

I had to do a couple small tasks before I got my PaintStick EZ-Twist out to paint the walls.  I removed the gallery wall of pictures and art and removed any nails that were in the wall.  I also got out a drop cloth for safety measures.  I typically use shower curtains from the dollar store!  So much cheaper than drop cloths.

Step 5

Before I got the MDF board purchased and cut I thought it would be a good idea to paint the area the color of my woodwork.  I will eventually paint it after the boards are in place but figured this would help cut down on some painting time.  I was able to do a quick base coat of my paint for easier painting later.

Step 6

I wanted to share with you a quick video of how to set up your PaintStick EZ-Twist in preparation for painting!

Step 7

It looks quite unfinished at the moment but once I have the boards attached to the wall it will look amazing!  On a side note, I didn't worry too much about cutting in right now near light switches and thermostats.  That is a detail I can do later when painting over the MDF boards as well.
