Photo: FreshPaint (Shutterstock) Painting interior walls in your home is one of those tasks that seems pretty quick and simple, but usually ends up being far more work than you anticipated. That’s because it’s not only a matter of brushing or rolling on a coat of fresh paint—there’s also all the prep work and cleanup that goes along with it (and tends to be edited out of TV shows featuring home makeovers).

The end result is that it’s delicious, smooth, and flavorful—kind of nutty with […]
