Tired of the monotonous home atmosphere? Maybe you should redecorate the room in the house. One of the easiest ways you can do is to change the color of the walls of the house to create a new and fresher atmosphere. You could paint it with the help of a professional exterior painting woodstock. But if you want you could also do it on your own. You don’t have to call a painter to do it, but you can do it yourself. That way, you not only save costs, you also create more for more artistic results according to your interests. However, to paint the wall yourself, there are several steps that you must pay attention to and follow properly.
The first thing you have to do is the painting equipment that will be used. The tools for painting include paint, water cans, brushes, rollers, duct tape, masking tape, newspapers, sandpaper, ladders, and putty. By preparing these tools from scratch, you can save time and effort so you don’t have to bother looking for these tools one by one. Before painting the wall, you need to clean it from dust so that the paint will stick properly later. Walls that have been cleaned of dust will have a smooth and flat surface. To clean the dust, you can use a duster, broom, or vacuum cleaner. If there is a large stubborn stain, you can clean it using detergent mixed water and wipe it with a sponge. Then let stand for a while until the walls dry.
Don’t forget to keep things or other unpainted corners of the room by closing them. Like window frames, door handles, ceiling edges, and others, you can cover them with duct tape or masking tape. As for other items around the painted walls, you can cover them with newspaper so they don’t get dirty with paint splashes. Likewise, with the floor, you should also cover it with a newspaper or board to keep the floor clean. After painting, don’t forget to immediately remove the masking tape or cover tape. This is intended to prevent the paint from pulling out if the masking tape or tape is removed for too long when the paint dries.
