This is not the recommended way to decorate your front room (and it would probably be best to keep a better eye on your kids!), but if you need a good eco-friendly paint stripper you should look at using the paint and varnish remover from Eco Solutions!! Read more on our Paint-Stripping project.
If you would like to learn more about painting and decorating you could take a look at some videos (in our DIY Videos section) covering how to paint a wall, using sponging techniques, painting window frames, painting a door and painting woodwork.
Alternatively, if you can’t face doing the decorating yourself (or your skills are more like the those in the photo above), you can always get a professional in using our Find a Tradesman form to get free, no obligation quotes from painers and decorators in your area.
