Interior Painting tips

Painting walls is a chore, and one that you will want to get right the first time around. Failure to paint the wall properly will cause the colors bleeding; running and you will have to add many coats of paint to cover these mistakes.
 

Place drop cloths on the area around where you are painting. Some paints say they wash up with soap and water, and the paint still is hard to remove.
 

Purchase paintbrushes for oil paints or latex, depending on which paint you are using. Same thing goes for the paint roller. It should have a medium nap. If preferred, you can use a paint sprayer and can purchase one at your local hardware center or home improvement center.
 

You can paint oil based paints over latex, but you can't paint latex based paints over oil based paints without first prepping the walls. You can buy an etching solution or use a primer to seal in the oil paint. After you have primed the wall, you can begin painting.
 

First you will want to start with your ceilings. Feel free to paint over the edges because when you paint the walls, you'll cut your corner in.
Next is your woodwork. Sand and prime before you paint.
Use a semi-gloss enamel paint on your trim and a flat finish or eggshell paint on your walls. Trim being doors, molding etc.
 

Now that you have finished the ceiling, you can paint the walls. Cut in first with a paintbrush. You do this by painting the corners and areas that the paint roller will not reach.
 

Roll out two coats on your walls, being sure you let the first coat dry thoroughly first. Be sure to have a window or fan for proper ventilation. If it's cold outside, make sure the heat is on in your home to help dry the paint.
 

Be sure to use quality paint. If you have children, you will want to make sure the paint can be washed. Also make sure the paint has a warranty for at least 5 years or longer.
 

After painting, be sure to clean the brushes, roller and roller pans for your next project.
