I am able to ‘t tell you how many customers I’ve painted for over the decades that easily could have painted themselves were concerned about messing up with the job. They’d rather pay me good money to paint a bedroom or 2 then become cluttered. I know that many individuals simply hate the idea of painting themselves and that is one reason miniature painting service exists. But for the remainder of those who avoid painting simply because you’re concerned about messing the job here are a couple of pointers that will assist you on your path.
1. When painting a space always be certain that you remove everything in the space before doing something else. This may include: furniture, lamps, pictures, electronic equipment, and whatever else you’d like to not get paint or need to work around.
2. For whatever that you may go only cover it with a drop cloth. It is possible to use the canvas range of drop cloth or even a plastic kind for doing so.
3. Cover floor area using a canvas drop cloth or old blankets or sheets. Vinyl drops aren’t exactly the best idea for this particular application, since, they are inclined to tear as you step on them and they’re slippery.
4. Fill in almost any nail holes that you simply don’t need any more with shrink free spackling, in addition to some other minor imperfections from the drywall. For larger cracks or drywall issues you’ll need to use drywall mud and a broad knife mudding knife.
5. Eliminate all socket covers, switch plates, and port covers. This will help save time and hassle afterwards as you’re painting. In addition, do not re-attach these plates before the paint is totally dry.
6. Employing a blue painter tape (typically low tack variety), cassette off any cut that you don’t need to wind up hitting your roller or brush cover.
