THE HOLLIDAY COLLECTIVE
Give your walls a fresh coat of paint and your home a new look, with these pro tips.
Protect surfaces. It's very important to cover any surfaces that you do not want to get paint on them. Use drop-cloths to protect floors and furniture.
Purchase high-quality supplies. Research the best paint, rollers, brushes, and painters tape for your specific project. Better products will yield professional results.
Prep wall surfaces. Clean walls to ensure a smooth finish. Use painters tape to get a crisp paint line. Fill and sand holes with joint compound as well.
Use primer. In some cases, using a primer (tined if you're painting a dark color) may be the best route to get a professional paint job. Inspect the wall and talk with a paint specialist for best practices.
Paint top to bottom. Start at the ceiling and paint in a downward motion towards the floor. This will ensure a professional finish and reduce paint splatter/drips.
With a fresh paint job in your favorite color, your room will be inspiring again.
