<br>A few weeks ago I was moving a wardrobe from my sons bedroom into my bedroom and it slipped out of my hands and banged against my sons bedroom door leaving a small hole in the door. Normally this wouldn't be a problem as I would get out some filler and repair the hole in seconds. Sadly I had no filler in the house at the time when it happened and my local DIY store had closed for the day. Putting it off to the next day until I could get some filler turned out to be my biggest mistake because quite simply I forgot all about the hole until yesterday. Forgetting to fix a small hole in a door when you have children is a fatal mistake as I found out yesterday when I eventually remembered. They pick and pick and pick at the small hole and the small hole grows bigger and bigger and bigger until it becomes a great big gaping chasm. I thought that I would have to replace the door then I remembered a trick that I learned years ago when I was helping a friend with his decorating.<br>
<br>The tip that I learned from my friend all of those years ago costs no money whatsoever but it is not suitable for external doors for <a href=""></a> security reasons and weathering. To fix a gaping hole in a door is actually quite simple all that you need is some old newspapers, some wallpaper paste and of course some paint to paint over your repair. You will also need some sandpaper, a wallpaper scraper and a paint brush. Filling in the hole in the door is a lot easier than you might think. First of all you mix up your paste but use only half the amount of water that it says to use on the packet. Then you scrunch up the pages of a newspaper into a ball and submerge them into the paste. Whilst the balls of newspaper are still wet with the paste, you put them into the hole until the hole is completely filled. Have a cup of tea and wait for about an hour.<br>
<br>After an hour the newspaper should still be wet, you now take your <a href="">wallpaper scraper</a> and start to smooth out the news paper balls so that you have a flat surface that is flush with the door. Wait overnight, warn your children on fear of death, not to touch the door or even go near it. The newspaper should now be dry, use your sandpaper to buff out any small lumps and bumps. Take a double page of a news paper and paste it like you would if you were pasting wall paper but paste both sides of the newspaper page. Place it over the ex hole on the door like wallpaper ensuring there are no air bubbles or wrinkles. Leave for a few hours to dry. When it has dried all that is left to do is give your door a coat of paint. Alternativley you can wallpaper over the door instead of painting which will conceal any of the damage. If you know that you wont be able to afford a more permanent repair for a long time wait until the papier mache has dried then apply a coat of clear varnish for a stronger and harder finish. The same method above can be used when patching up a large hole in drywall, it works because the newspaper dipped in paste turns into papier mache which stiffens and hardens the newspaper. The paste also has the added effect of sticking the paper to the inside back surface of the door or wall. Papier mache is a great tempoary repair when you don't have much money to spend on a more expensive permanent repair. Door ImprovementsWhich is the Best Keyless Door Lock?<br>
<br>This will allow them to feel good for short while and then they will have to face up to the fact that they can’t rely on anyone else to change their life. In order for one to change their life, it will be essential for them to embrace their own power as opposed to giving it to other people. Ultimately, this is the only way that their life will change for the better. Voting is not a complete waste of time as certain things can take place through this approach. But if one expects these politicians to completely change their life, they are likely to be in for a big shock. Author's Bio: Prolific writer, author, and coach, Oliver JR Cooper, hails from England.
