  • Don’t skip this step. Pretty please. It makes such a difference in your painted room. Many times when you paint a room you’ll have previous nail holes and nicks and dents. Using spackle, patch holes. Let it dry and then sand until you have a smooth surface. Spackle products differ, so you will want to make sure to follow manufacturer’s directions.

  • You will want to remove existing plate covers so they don’t accidentally get paint on them. Quick tip: place the tiny screws for the covers back into the holes so you don’t lose them. Remove any cobwebs or scuff marks on the existing paint.

  • Using FrogTape, tape all borders of the room where the paint connects with molding, architectural details, ceilings or floors.

  • To ensure a smooth line, press tape down firmly to secure.

  • You can skip a step if you purchase paint with a primer. Most home improvements store sell this particular type of paint. Using a brush, dip brush approximately 1/3 of the way into the paint and brush around the edges. Then fill in the remainder of the wall with a roller. Quick tip: using an extension for your roller can make it easier to reach the top of the wall. Let first coat dry. Apply a second coat of paint as needed.
