Painting and Decorating DIY Tips Enfield
It’s nuts how simply applying a few coats of paint can update the look of a room so quickly! With many colours to choose from DIY improvements become relatively easy, painting can quickly and cheaply give your space an instant pick me up.
Before you dip your brush to paint, make sure you have done all the prep work! If you don’t remove the dirt and other debris from your walls, all your hard work painting will not pay off.
It’s tempting to buy the cheapest paint – but if you’re buying paint solely based on price, you may end up spending more in the long run. Cheaper paint may require more coats of paint and a lot more work! Try do get a paint which includes it’s own primer.
It may sound like a common sense tip but with a lot of your things moved around and a focus on painting, it can be easy to accidentally knock over the tin of paint while working. This is obviously a big waste of paint and money!
Chances are that you’ll live to paint another day – so make sure you take care of your supplies, especially at clean up time! Washing brushes, rollers, and containers as directed with soap and water or mineral spirits based on the directions. Reseal containers so paint stays in usable condition for touch-ups or new painting projects down the road.
