PAINTING WALLS & CEILINGS

 

ORDER OF WORK

Remove the furniture and wall hangings or place them in the center of the room, and cover with a drop cloth. Remove light fixtures from the walls if possible, and cover outlets with plastic bags. Cover the floor with a drop cloth. Now clean and prepare the surfaces to be painted. The ceiling should be the starting point, and then work across the walls. Paint the woodwork last.
 

 

 

HOW TO APPLY LATEX PAINT

Ideal for walls and ceilings, latex is available as a matte or silk finish. It is water soluble and dries quickly.

 

1. Work in areas of 2 sq ft (60 sq cm) in light, crisscross strokes. Do not apply the paint too thickly.

 

2. Finish with an upward stroke. Move to the adjacent area. Do not apply more coats until the first coat is dry.
