If you shop around enough, you will find many great bargains when looking to purchase paint. You can even contact various construction companies and offer to purchase their left over paints for next to nothing.
Once you have all the paint you’ll need, prepare the room first before just whipping out the paint brush. Ensure that your floors/carpets are all covered with plastic/vinyl sheets or even newspaper if you cannot afford to purchase vinyl floor protection. Just make sure that your floors are protected properly from any paint drops as it can damage the floor material severely.
Once the floor protection has been taken care of, start removing all the power outlet switch covers carefully with a screw driver and make sure you keep all of the screws aside in a safe place to ensure you don’t lose them.
The last precaution you need to take is to protect your floor boards and door panels (unless you are planning on painting them too) by sticking tape along the edges which can be removed once you have finished painting. You can do the same with anything you don’t want painted over, just cover the area with nice thick tape. Or, option b is to purchase a tiny thin, one inch paint brush to use when you paint the rims around the edges. This method would be much faster than using tape, but you will need a very steady hand to pull it off perfectly. Should you go over the edges and make tiny mistakes, just wipe it off very quickly with a wet cloth before it hardens and stays there forever.
Ok, now you are ready as can be to whip out that paint brush and paint roller to release your creative energies. A good trick is to cover the paint tray with a plastic bag or foil, as this will make the cleaning process afterwards much easier by just throwing the cover away instead of having to scrub the tray.
Before dipping into the paint bucket, mix it well first and then pour some slowly into the tray. Then, paint. For more information on industrial or house hold painting visit www.paintfellas.co.za.
