- Dry weather
Pretty much common knowledge that you do not paint your interiors on a rainy day! But if you are patient enough to wait for it to dry- you can always take it to your advantage. Slow drying means more time to correct your errors before moving on! But let’s not over-do it, as it will show as when you finish.
- Prep up like a pro
Now this is one of the most important tips to be taken into consideration. Prep the room and the wall surfaces before you begin. Take off everything from your walls- electrical switch and outlet covers, wall scones, picture hangings and any other wall fixtures or attachments, paint only on clean and dry surfaces.
Want the paint to dry faster? Open your windows and run the fans while you work, get a constant supply of air.
- Paint top to bottom
Rollers are the easiest for larger surfaces, so cut in your edges at the ceiling and baseboard with a brush and then opt for a roller. Use your roller from ceiling downwards and paint over your mistakes as you work your way down!
Be a pro! – Don’t back over the paint as it can leave marks and color streaks on the surface. Avoid telltale drips and splatters at the end of a paint job!
- Eliminating brush marks
This is a problem all of us are going to face while we paint the walls ourselves- brush marks. The prominent brush marks are caused by poor application technique, thus making it look uneven.
To eliminate the marks: machine sand the area–clean of the dust with a damp cloth–repaint.
- Finish one at a time! Don’t hurry
Want to be a pro? Then follow this instruction. To get a seamless look, always cut in one wall at a time, then immediately roll it before you start off with the next one. Let the brush and rolled paint blend together before you begin again.
Don’t hesitate from doing it yourself because of all the things that could go wrong. There’s no mistake that cannot be corrected. Treat yourself this season by with whole new home interiors! Feel the same way inside out!
