Follow Along To Do the Project
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.
