Transform your space in a weekend with the right tools

A whole new look

Giving a tired room a fresh look can be as simple as applying a coat of paint and some wall décor. With 3M Scotch painter’s tape and 3M Command adhesive strips and hooks, you’ve got the right tools to make it happen.

1. Prep for success

A spectacular paint job starts with careful preparation. Clean and dry your surface, then apply tape around the edges. ScotchBlue Original Painter’s Tape is the ultimate all-rounder, while ScotchBlue Sharp Lines Painter’s Tape uses Edge-Lock Technology to seal out paint like no other. For uneven masonry or timber, opt for Scotch Rough Surface Painter’s Tape or use Scotch Exterior Surface Painter’s Tape for weather-resistant hold outdoors.

Tip: For best results, press – don’t stretch – the tape in place, then firmly stick it down with a putty knife or a credit card. Leave to set for 30 to 60 minutes before painting.

2. Painted perfection

Brush and roll on your paint before completing the most satisfying part – removing the tape. ScotchBlue tape can stay in place for up to 14 days after application without leaving residue, so when you peel it off, you’re left with nothing but impeccable definition.

3. Make it yours

Hanging family photos and artwork is the best way to liven up blank walls and personalise a space. Command picture hanging strips lock securely, holding up to 1.8kg for a small set and 7.2kg for a large set (a 61cm x 91cm frame). Best of all, they leave no residue, holes or marks behind, so you can easily change up your space.

4. Keep it organised

An organised space is a calm space, and finding a home for everything can be transformative. Command adhesive wall hooks can help you organise all of your practical essentials, from brooms to keys. They can also be used for decorative purposes. Try using Command hooks to hang practical items that deserve to be displayed, from beautiful baskets to hats or your favourite necklaces.

Some products are not available at all Bunnings stores, but may be ordered.

Health & Safety

Please make sure you use all equipment appropriately and safely when following the advice in these D.I.Y. videos. You need to be familiar with how to use equipment safely and follow the instructions that came with the equipment. If you are unsure, you may feel it is safest to consult an expert, such as the manufacturer or an expert Bunnings Team Member.

Grave health hazards are linked to asbestos, which may be in homes built up to 1990. Health hazards may result from exposure to lead-based paints in older materials and copper chromium arsenic (CCA) treated timber. For information on the dangers of asbestos, lead-based paint and CCA treated timber and tips for dealing with these materials contact your local council's Environmental Health Officer. You can also use a simple test kit from Bunnings to indicate the presence of lead-based paint.
