The easiest way to paint your walls in a day? Throw a painting party! A fun and funky alternative to the traditional housewarming, this festive fete requires just a few close friends, several cans of paint and supplies and a sensational cocktail party spread to reward your guests for their hard work.

The perks, of course, are that you get the room painted much quicker and with a lot more spirit than you would doing the work all by your lonesome. If you go the communal route, you must place the emphasis on the party '- how else are you going to beg your friends for their help?
