The last interior paint prep step before breaking out the brushes and rollers
is to double-check the paint itself. Open a can, make sure that it's fully mixed. And then apply a small coat to your paint color swatch or to an inconspicuous area of the wall Try painting behind some of that furniture you moved away earlier.
At this point you're simply verifying that there wasn't an issue with the paint tint. Or that there was a miscommunication about what shade was going up in the bedroom or the bathroom. Once you know you're good to go, then at last you can start painting!
Painting isn't an easy project, but by following these tricks, you can greatly simplify the process. And you'll quickly see an improvement in the way that your walls, ceilings
, and even doors
look crisp, smooth, and professionally done.
