Your house needs a painting, but you do not have the money to pay the bar bill, let alone hire a professional for interior painting? Are you assured that you can do it yourself? It ties in on the tips we’ve separated.
- Mix inks of the same color
Calculate the amount of paint needed, mix everything in a container, and then start painting. That is because an ink of the same color, but of different lots, can generate differences of tone.
- Line with Cardboard
Plastics slow to dry, tear, stick to the foot, melamine everything. So when it comes to covering the floor, it is best to use corrugated cardboard, it is cheap and absorbs the paint causing it to dry faster. Besides being sustainable, right?
- Keep an eye on the weather forecast
If the weather is very humid, the paint will have more difficulty drying. If it is dry or hot, the paint does not spread and can leave stains on your wall, so avoid painting on days with less than 10% humidity.
- Clean well before starting
Before painting bet on cleaning is essential to avoid defects. If the wall is dirty, water and detergent will resolve, in case of mildew, use bleach. However, if the work was done with a ballpoint pen, sanding is the only solution.
- Cover the footer
Use a thick crepe tape to cover the baseboard. Remove the powder from the wall for better adhesion of the tape and pass the ruler ensuring adhesion. To avoid mess, start by painting from the center of the wall and drag the brush toward the baseboard, so the brush would not get so wet on the tape.
- Protect the hinges
Tired of the color of the door? You can paint them too. But, pay attention on the hinges, some liquid Vaseline will leave them oily as soon as the paint streaks, giving work to open and close the door afterwards.
