If you were given an on the spot quiz about painting dos and don’ts, how well would you do? You can find out by following along with the quiz in the video below. You may find out you don’t know as much about painting as you once thought. It is true that anyone can open up a bucket of paint and paint a room, but that doesn’t mean the finished product is going to look good. If you are going to spend the money and take the time, you might as well have the knowledge to ensure you are doing things correctly. You need to prep the walls, have the right tools on hand, properly use the paint roller and finish off the project with details and straight edges. You should also get a little help with your color choices if this is not a strong suit for you. There is nothing like a DIY project that you can finish in a weekend and immediately enjoy. Painting is one of those types of projects and it can make a world of a difference in a room. Just don’t go into it head strong, thinking you already know how it is done.
