Painting is a decorative feature on external or internal surfaces in a structure. This has different shades of colors. The surface to be decorated is what will determine the paint type to use. This may be oil or emulsion. In a high human traffic area, washable paints are advisable to use. The wall is done with oil or gloss paint. Emulsions or water based paints are used for building interiors or exteriors. The mixing is to the manufactures instructions.
Painting commences with preparing the wall surfaces. The plaster surface should be dry. The work should only be done in dry weather conditions. This starts with sanding and rubbing down walls and is to ensure that all loose mortar or dirt is removed. It is done with a sand paper. A brush is used for dusting the wall. Repairs or corrections should be done early. This is to avoid wetting the dry walls. Timber surface knotting is done before sanding.
Priming or applying undercoats on wall surfaces should be done. Before proceeding the undercoats must be dry. Filling is done to patch up any dents on the wall with fillers. It is are then sanded smooth. After this a first coat is painted. After drying, the second filling is done to ensure a smooth surface. Fine glass paper should be used to rub down the fillers. This should be very smooth for oil or enamel paints to avoid hair lines on the wall.
The painting proceeds to the second and third coat. Each coat should be left to dry thoroughly before the next one is applied. This work should be done with a good fine brush. The decoration should not show brush marks. Other painting tools used include spray guns and rollers. Remember that it is advisable to do the final coat after major dusty or wet floor finishes are completed. If different colors are used on the walls, a tape for marking the joint is used.
He leaned closer to me his eyes wide with anticipation, and then I replied, Dont do it!
We both chuckled, but I know my answer was not what he wanted to hear. Still my advice stands. Do not compromise, you will not be happy and neither will your client (internal or external). Scope the study in a fashion that uses the available research funds effectively.
If you want to conduct a multi-regional study with N=2,000 households to explore the market for companies that supplies solar energy equipment and your budget is $25,000 your headed for trouble and disappointment. Under funded projects inevitably fail, dont put yourself or your clients in harms way!
Does this mean you cannot use your budget effectively to shed light on the research and business objective you have? The answer is of course not. However, you are probably not going to accomplish the same results as a multi-regional study with an N=2,000 households. You will need to scale back the research and the scope of objectives you can address with a smaller budget. You are likely to spend a budget of $25,000 more effectively on a regional qualitative study, appropriate syndicated research, or a targeted multi-client study (MCS).
Thus, as others have said in many venues, all successful research starts with an honest assessment of the research objectives and the resources available to achieve those objectives. Starting the process of scoping a research project by deciding on the sample size or data collection method or some analytic approach that seems intriguing is likely to end in disappointment or failure. At the very least, you will not optimize your research efforts and resources.
That said, once you are ready to make decisions on sampling, if your sampling plan is well though out and you have created the means (i.e., resources) to execute high quality data collection we congratulate you!
You can congratulate yourself too!
But realize that this is only a necessary step and not sufficient to guarantee success, questionnaire design, analysis, interpretation, and all the other steps in the continuum of a research project must also be accomplished and done well too. However, if you do not get the sampling step right (or the questionnaire design step) you can never fully recover.
You have probably heard me harp on this point, but it worth repeating:
Research Axiom # Two:
You can never fully recover from a poorly developed sample that lacks validity.
No amount of analysis, regardless of how brilliant
No degree of insightful interpretation, regardless of your intellectual prowess
No manipulation of the variables, regardless of how cleverly done
Nothing can save you from a poor foundation. The building will collapse!
You may have read this in other writings we have published, but if you havent re-read it now. Moreover, review this research axiom each time you start a research project.
In addition, if someone asks you Do you have any advice on how to cut corners on sampling? Lean over and say, Yes. Then, when you have the persons full attention, reply slowly, Dont do it!
The first thing that comes to mind when you think of bedroom is a warm and cozy feeling. Yes, that is what a bedroom is meant to be. After a day?s tiring work all you have in your mind will be to go back home and relax in your bedroom. The warmth and coziness that a bedroom exudes can never be attained from any other room. Hence decorating your bedroom in the most appropriate manner makes sense.
One of the first things to be considered while decorating the bedroom is the color of the wall. The color that you choose for your bedroom depends on several factors. If your room is small it is always better to go in for lighter color like white or off white. An off white colored wall can provide a cozy look to the room. On the other hand, bold colors can be used for larger rooms. Another trend is to paint one wall in a darker shade and rest of the wall on a lighter note. The usual practice while painting a bedroom is to go in for shades of blue and green. But that is completely left to the individual as to which color to choose. While blue and green can be soothing for some, it may not be so for others.
The second thing to be considered is the choice of furniture. If you are having small room it is always desirable to go in for furniture with lighter tone like white furniture or Hampton white painted furniture. This will make the room look bigger. If installing white furniture makes the room look cold and stark, the room can be accessorized with colored accessories. A red or green pillow against a white background can make the room look fabulous.
The third thing to be considered is bedroom accessories. Two things that are must have for a bedroom are table lamp and clock. If you have painted the walls in a lighter tone, you can go in for a clock with darker frame so that the wall does not look too dull. Same is the case with table lamp. Other accessories that are usually used are photos, floral wreath etc.
A proper color co-ordination with right accessories can transform your bedroom into a world of envy!
