If you want your home to be painted, you need to decipher some of the painting secrets of professionals. Here are some of those:
– Finish one wall at a time. Before you try to start another wall, you should first finish the wall that you have started with. It would seem easy to do first all of the corners in a room and then go back to do rolls on wall but do not. Professionals get a seamless look on the room by cutting first in one wall and then roll on it before you start the next wall. This will allow the brushed as well as the rolled paint in order to blend together. You need to cover your paint bucket, container or tray using a damp towel when you switch in between rolling and brushing in order to keep the tools and paint from drying out when these are not in use.
– Scrape the windows and do not tape it. Do not bother to tape the windows when you are painting sashes. It will take a very long time and the paint will usually end up on the glass. Just let it be and allow the paint to be on the glass. When it is dry, just scrape the paint off using a razor blade. The paint will peel off in several seconds. You just have to be careful though not to break the bond of paint between the glass and the wood as cautioned by a professional. If you do not take heed of this advice, the moisture can get inside the wood and cause it to rot.
– Box paint in order to have a consistency in color. The same color of the paint can vary between paint colors. The difference will only be very obvious when you open a new gallon and are already halfway through the wall.
