How to paint your room easily

Prepare your room for Painting:

Remove all furniture and decorations that can be moved easily, large furniture such as sofa, chair or bed cover with a savannah or a plastic disused large. Remove caps and electrical switches or spot lamps that are applied to the ceiling or walls (for safety off the power). If possible remove the windows and doors (it’s easy, get help to do this, usually both too heavy) and unscrew the handles.

Mask: The next step is to define the spaces that have decided to paint with masking tape. There are several types of tapes, it is important that paper, there are of different sizes and has the quality to adapt and stick easily to any surface and at any angle. You will need to cover the meeting between the baseboards and the wall, around light switches, window frames, etc.. and in case you want to paint the walls in two colors. Must be withdrawn before the paint is completely dry, thus easily will, without other paint.

Steps to Follow:

- Prepare the surface:
Check the condition of the walls and ceiling, if generally in good condition you can paint directly, if the layers of paint from previous years easily rise or occurs with wrinkles; open to remove. With a spatula, remove the wall paint that comes off easily and then paired with fine sandpaper. If you find cracks or crevices should cover with pastry lid cracks, apply evenly with a spatula, let dry and sand with 000 grit sandpaper to smooth triple. This procedure must be done correctly but after finish painting the room, the paint may rise again.

- You decide:
Remove with a clean dust adhering to the walls have sanding product. To do the job properly, if the surface is new or has a too porous surface, before painting will lend a hand painted fixative sealer (primer with latex paint), but most go straight to the final painting. If the room is to paint the living room, the kitchen or the bathroom, first necessary to wash the walls with warm water and liquid soap and rinse thoroughly.

- Preparation of the painting:
If you use premium paint will have a capacity and excellent coverage with one hand will suffice. You also earn over time because a good painting takes between 5 and 8 years in excellent condition. Before removing paint and circular movements upwards until homogeneous consistency. If the paint is begun, before moving the paint must be removed carefully dried paint to prevent it from falling into the boat, but the paint will have lumps. Choose the days cool, dry, well-ventilated, avoid damp or rainy days as much heat. If you apply more than one coat of paint let dry between them.

- Start by high:
We always start from the roof, because if a drop of paint falls on the walls, these will be plugged to be painted. Painting the ceiling is applied with a roller and an extension to make it long enough and comfortable for the person who paints. The angles and the areas closest to the walls are painted with a brush. There are various types of rollers (wool or synthetic short hair for smooth walls and wool or synthetic long hair for walls gotéele), also need a normal brush ceiling moldings and rounded tip brush for corners and angles. The first step is to paint brush angles and areas closer to the walls. If you have a filling or capping cracks has also pass the brush to prevent them from absorbing the paint later and are darker. The second step is to apply the paint with a roller, be sure that no excess paint, must be drained and spread the paint evenly.

- Continue with the walls:
Just as he has painted the ceiling, the walls will proceed. Everything will depend on the type of paint and finish you have chosen to use. But for the paint application roller is performed from top to bottom to obtain a smooth finish and perfect.

- Finally doors and windows:
If windows are wood and the paint has chipped or broken there is any, can be repaired with a wood product arrangements (check with your hardware dealer) and is appropriate to apply a fixative before painting. If you have decided to paint the woodwork with the same paint as the walls can do while the walls. If the paint has a different color or brightness will be the last to be painted. If you removed the windows and door frames begin with, but the parts of wood between the frame and window, wait to dry thoroughly before continuing unlocked. Doors must be painted from the inside out, if they have first painted panels to end panels with vertical and horizontal straps. Windows should be masked to avoid staining the crystals. Do not let the long masking tape, but to remove some of the paint drag.
