How to paint a room

Now that you know the different kinds of paint and tools to be used, you are ready to paint a room, specifically the wall. First of all, you need to clean the walls to ensure that any dirt, dust or grease that would otherwise make it difficult to paint is removed from the wall. After cleaning, you need to trim the room. Use blue painter’s tape as opposed to masking tape for this job since masking tape tends to leave a sticky residue.

Once you are ready to start painting, ensure that the floor and furniture is properly covered, preferably with a drop cloth such as canvas. As you collect paint from the tray, ensure that you remove any excess paint before actually rolling the paint to the wall. Ensure that the roller is evenly coated then proceed to run the roller up and down a given wall until the entire surface is covered.
