4 Great Painting Tips for First Time Decorators
To lots of people who have never done it before painting the interior of their home can sound like it is going to be the easiest thing in the world to do. That is before they actually give it a try and discover,after a few hours and a lot of grief that it is not quite as simple as they thought it might be! However if you keep the following tips in mind you should be able to do a great job and end up with a room that looks professionally painted and not with one that looks like an army of toddlers got their hands on a set of paintbrushes!Choose the Right Day to Paint
Believe it or not the weather can make a big difference to the success of your paint job even if you are painting indoors. If the weather outside is wet or humid the moisture will prevent the paint from drying properly so wait for a nice dry day to begin your painting project if at all possible.
Cover Things Up
Before you even take the lid off the paint can take the time to cover up and protect all the things that you do not want to paint - like your furniture and the floor!
Primer Comes First
Too many people skip primer because they want to save time but that can be a big mistake. Not only does a primer coat create a better surface to paint on in general but it also helps the true color of the paint show through.
Take Your Time
Rome was not built in a day and your bedroom probably cannot be painted in an hour, not if you want to do a half decent job anyway. Take your time and work your way across the room slowly and steadily. if you want to save time use a roller not a paintbrush but other than that prepare yourself for the fact that you are probably going to be painting all day.
In case you still not sure of being ready for your first painting decorating, try the wall themed stickers and decals available in huge range - from 'Mario Game' to simple flowers. The main advantage is that you can easily remove them from walls and redecorate the room with new ones with no mess, no effort at all!
