DIY Painting: Tips to Paint Like a Pro!

Have you ever dreamed of changing the color of your room but did not because you did not have enough money to hire professional painters? Color change in the walls can really bring out the personality of the room. Do not fret because you can do the painting yourself and make it look like it was done by real painters. Aside from buying all the necessary materials and having enough courage and patience to force yourself to do this project, you just need to know these simple tricks to start painting your space like professional Painters Brisbane!

  1. When painting with a paint roller, make sure to buy the good quality ones. They may cost you a few bucks more however they will let you avoid having some spaces in your walls or thick parts. When you finally get that roller make sure to dip it in enough paint so that when you roll it, it can cover the wall from bottom to the ceiling in one single stroke. This will make sure that there is equal thickness of paint.
  2. For consistent color, make sure you do all the mixing at once. Even though the paint cans you bought have the same code in them, they might have some slight color variations from can to can. It is best then to mix all the cans you will be needing in a huge paint bucket to ensure that they are well blended and that there will be less color variations in the different walls of your room.
  3. Using tape to cover certain areas while painting is a good technique to keep paint away from certain areas where it is not needed. However, what most people do not know is that you just don’t remove the tape anytime as soon as the paint is applied. Instead, wait for the paint to dry fully so that the edges won’t stick to the tape as you remove it and you are left with a very nice and clean straight edge.
  4. There is a certain logical order that painters follow in choosing which part to paint first. Although it is tempting to paint the walls first to cover a larger area, don’t! Leave them to be the last one to be painted. Instead, paint the trimmings first, let it dry and tape. After this you can paint the walls and cover any trimming paint that went beyond to the wall. Same technique can be applied when painting ceiling!
