Interior Paint Tips — How To, Part 3

As stated previously in another post, there is a lot of work that needs to be done in the preparation stage, and if properly done you will have lasting and enjoyable results.

The third part of interior paint tips brings us to the point of applying that fresh coat of paint the brings results and makes all the prep work worth while.  As stated previously in another post, there is a lot of work that needs to be done in the preparation stage, and if properly done you will have lasting and enjoyable results.

The biggest fact of life is, “You get what you pay for”.  Buy cheap paint and you’ll get cheap and unsatisfactory results.  Think about it for a moment.  Why bother to go through all the hard work of good preparation and getting everything ready only to ruin the final results by buying the cheapest watered-down paint on sale.  Probably the number one interior paint tip would be to purchase the best quality paint you can afford, and the number two interior paint tip that follows is to buy a good quality roller.Never go cheap on an interior paint job. If you want pieces of cheap roller lint and fuzzies all over your newly painted walls, then buy the “3-for-a-dollar” packages and you’ll quickly discover that the rollers begin to fall apart and you have a smeary paint job.  Look for rollers that say “shed resistant woven” or similar wording.  They do cost a little more, but the quality result is worth it.  Plus prompt and proper cleaning of the roller will give you many more days of use.

Start in one corner of the room and cut in around any windows, doors or trim.  Remember to keep painting in one area so you maintain “fresh” paint.  By cutting in a short four-foot wide section and then rolling the paint over that same area, you can keep a good flow of fresh paint and not have any areas getting dry before you can complete that section.  Some grades of paint will dry faster than others and you will notice a difference in overlap if you don’t keep moving uniformly around the room.

Your Interior Paint Project Can Be Rewarding

Interior painting can be very rewarding if you don’t rush the project, buy quality equipment, take care of the proper preparation steps and get everything possible out of the way so there are no accidents.
