Paint Your House With Your Mouse

If you are trying to decide what colour to paint a particular room in your house but you're unsure of how it will look or what colours will go well together you should check out It's got a great "mouse painter" function that allows you to visualise what your room will look like when finished.

You can choose from a number of images of bathrooms, bedrooms, dining rooms, hallways, exteriors, kitchens or living rooms and you are given a blank canvas to start off with.

You can then drag and drop colours to the walls of the room to see what works well together. You can even colour bedspreads, floors and lamps in some of the rooms just to set the scene! It's a fun tool to help you decide what look you want to achieve and might persuade you to be a bit more adventurous if you can get an idea of what works and what doesn't before you get out your paintbrush and roller at home.

Otherwise why not have some fun with it, create the most garish room you can and scare your other half by showing him/her your plans for the master bedroom...?
