Do This One Thing

There is a right way and a wrong way to paint:

Some would say the right way to paint is to hire professionals.

If this isn’t an option then do this one thing before you start to paint:

Prep, Prep and Prep

It’s all about the preparation and planning: Clean the surfaces completely. Don’t just dust but scrub clean and let dry for 24 hours. Tape areas not to be painted. Buy the right brushes and rollers for the job. Prime first. Remove furniture, area rugs and drapes. Use cloth, not plastic drop clothes. Fix blemishes both big (holes) and small (scratches). Remove outlet covers (then clean or purchase new ones). Test a couple of small areas to make sure the paint color is what you want in different lights at different times of day.

Part of the planning process is learning: What’s the difference between matte and gloss finishes? What is “cutting in“?  “What kind of paint brush is best and how should the brush be loaded? Why is priming important? What is “laying off“? How does humidity affect the painting process? What is the “W” technique? Talk to your paint supplier whether your hometown hardware store or a big box retailer – ask questions, get tips all before you dip the brush into the paint.
