One of the most important aspects of having a stress-free interior painting experience is to be well prepared before you start. This means having your supplies ready to go, including drop cloths, tarps, ladders, paintbrushes, and other necessary tools.
In addition, you’ll want to ensure that you have plenty of paint to cover the entire surface you’ll be working on. If you’re unsure how much paint you’ll need, it’s always better to overestimate than underestimate – you can always return unused paint to the store later.
PREP THE SPACE
Once you have everything you need, take the time to properly prep your space. This means moving all furniture out of the way, removing any wall hangings or other decorations, and patching up any holes or cracks in the walls.
This extra effort will pay off in the end, making your job much more manageable and resulting in a smoother, more professional-looking paint job.
PAINTING THE SURFACES
With everything prepped and ready to go, you can finally start painting!
- Begin by painting the edges and trim first, using a brush or small roller.
- You can use a paint roller with an extension handle to reach those tricky spots for the larger surfaces.
- Work your way from top to bottom and left to right in even strokes, taking care not to miss any spots.
- If you need a break, just cover your paint supplies with a tarp or cloth to keep them from drying.
Once you have finished painting, cleaning up is the last step. Be sure to wash all your brushes and rollers thoroughly, and put everything away until next time. With just a little preparation and care, you can enjoy a stress-free interior painting experience – and beautiful new walls to show for it!
