On Friday evening, I started working in the guest room, prepping the walls prior to painting. As I puttered around, filling holes and scraping flaking paint, I realized that what seems to be common knowledge to DIY’ers who’ve done this all before may not be so apparent to people who’ve never had the opportunity to learn this.
After all, if you’ve always been a renter, and the landlord or leasing company has been taking care of your walls, you haven’t had the need to know! Or you may be in your very first place and eager to make it your own. And slapping a coat of paint on the wall is one ot the most simple and inexpensive way to change things up.
That’s all well and good if your walls are in pristine condition. But how many walls are actually in this condition? Most need, at the very least, a little bit of work.
Here are a few very good tutorials that can get you started!
After all this prep work, you’ll be ready to paint! Because you took the time to get your surfaces in good shape, the painting will go much more smoothly, and you’ll have a great finish.
I’d really love to see your comments on the projects I do and the ideas I have. I learn more from critiques than praise, but, honestly, I adore praise (and who doesn’t?).
Thanks for stopping by.
