Aldo and Alvy Painting
We can all agree that painting your walls can be a DIY project. Below are a few tips and guidelines to make it look more professional.
Sand Away Flaws
Smooth out the surface with sandpaper to avoid joint-compound patches and ridges around nail holes. If the surface is smooth, so will the painted wall be.
Buy The Best Supplies
When you use a cheap paintbrush, the bristles tend to fall out and it may seem like you’ve just smeared paint on the wall with a rake. Also, use expensive paint for the best coverage. It is washable and will last longer. In conclusion, it may seem expensive now, but in the long run, you cannot go wrong.
Cover Your Furniture
Protect your furniture from paint splatters and the dust from sanding. Move it to the center of the room and cover it with plastic sheets taped to the bottom.
Use Tinted Primer
Ever noticed that dull areas on the painted wall? This is the result of joint compounds that absorb the moisture of the paint. Always prime the walls with a color similar to the finish paint.
Press Tape With a Putty Knife
We always feel discouraged when the paint has bled through. For a good seal, press the tape down with a putty knife. Above all, use painters tape instead of masking tape for the best results.
Eliminate Brush and Lap Marks With Paint Extender
Firstly, it slows down the paint drying time. As a result, you will have a longer window to overlap just-painted areas without getting ugly lap marks. Secondly, paint extender levels out the paint so brush strokes are virtually eliminated.
Scrape a Ridge in Textured Ceilings
Run a screwdriver along the perimeter of the ceiling to scrape off the texture. This allows you to cut in without getting paint on the ceiling texture. The paint bristles naturally go into the tiny ridge in the ceiling.
Use Canvas Drop Cloths
Thin sheets won’t prevent splatters and spills from seeping through to your flooring. Paint on plastic also stays wet for a long, which you will step in at some point and leave traces everywhere. Instead, use canvas drop cloths. The absorb platters are easy to move and wide enough to cover the length of your wall.
Finish One Wall Before Starting Another
Always do one wall at a time. Cut in one wall, then immediately roll it before starting the next. As a result, the brushed and rolled paint will blend better.
Allow the paint to get onto the window. Afterward, scrape the dry paint with a razor blade.
The above-mentioned methods are only a drop in the ocean. There are a lot more tips and guidelines recommended by experts. Some include what brush to use, others may cover the switch plates.
