Crazy Question


Do you guys think that alot of people would be interested in doing their own texture work?

I know alot of people want to cover up old wallpaper, or would like to have a cool texturing style in their homes, and they pay alot of money to have that done.

But do you guys think that people would want to learn how to do it themselves to save alot of money, or do people assume it would be too much trouble and would rather just pay someone to do it?

I'm thinking about creating a website that teaches people to do it themselves, but i don't know if anyone would be interested.

Please tell me what you think... thanx

Except may be you should google out see what other information available out there... or if there is already web site covering the topics... If there isn't anything similar to what you are going to teach... please go right ahead... and I will be eager to be the first one to read it... or even give you feedback...etc.

Im talking abaut hand texture finishes mostly. Although I could offer info on spray ect. But i was thinking about things such as skip trials. There are a few sites that offer general information, but none that would get as detailed as mine and offer a step by step guide and give suggestions on what supplies to use and such. do you guys know of alot of people that would be interested?

You mean like Venetian Plaster and other fauxs?
I think they are a bit too complex to learn on a website
IMO they really need a bit of training to do right

But don't let my opinion stop you

Yes, for DIY, I probably don't want to get into what professional doing. The key is simple and easy to follow, and kind of want the job to be done faster rather than slower...etc.... that makes me want to use machine rather than hand..etc...
