How To Paint Your House Without Painting Your Self
Summer is the most popular time to do house painting in Nanaimo.
While house painting can be a fun project for the entire family to enjoy you'll want to be sure that it's the house that gets painted and not the kids!
Here are a few steps you can take to make your summertime house painting project in Nanaimo extra enjoyable:
First, measure the area that you'll be painting to be sure you buy enough paint for your project in a single trip. There's nothing worse then having to run back to the store in the middle of your painting work - with brushes drying and the light changing - because you've run out of paint.
Secondly, consider opting for colours that are in vogue. You'll be amazed at how a fresh coat of stylish paint can brighten up your home, and make an old house look new again.
Next, don't scrimp on quality. Be sure you're comparing apples-to-apples when you compare the price per container of paint. After all, what's the point in buying paint that's a few dollars cheaper if you have to put on twice as many coats of paint with a less expensive brand?
Lastly, here some things that you can do to keep you painting project clean and under control:
1. Use area drop clothes in the area you're painting. It's not necessary to cover the whole floor with clothes. Instead, use a smaller drop cloth and move it as you paint a new area. This way you're less liable to step in a paint drip.
2. Purchase a bunch of inexpensive thing rubber gloves to keep drips off of your hands and finger nails.
3. Paint one small area at a time. By doing this you'll be less likely to have to go back over spots that you've missed. Don't forget to look for areas where you've put too much paint - these can easily be brushed over before the paint dries.
