Period-Heritage Decorating period property (pre 1920) has its own challenges, as does heritage work. This is the place to discuss any interior or exterior decorating projects falling under this category. Spraying Discuss HVLP, airless, Air Assisted Airless... where you use them, with what and why. Wall-papering Preparing surfaces, cross-lining, and hanging all types of wallcovering from vinyls to hand prints and Lincrusta. Specific reviews of tools should be posted under Tools!
