Well-Lit & Nicely Painted Living Room

Painting…DIY or Not?

If you are looking to shift to a new house or want to renovate your existing one, the first thing you will need to think about is the painting. You can paint your own house and save money, but it is important to do it right so that you don’t cause unforeseen problems down the road.

Before you start your project, there are a few things that you will need to figure out such as the amount of paint you will need, the tools for the task, and of course you’ll have to choose the color or colors (two-tone rooms and exteriors are very popular). While there are lots of things to choose, it does not necessarily have to be daunting. With proper planning, the project can be a great experience for you. NL&B Construction does both interior and exterior painting and can assist you in this project if you desire.

One of the most important considerations will be the color for the room or the house. This depends on your personal preference as well as the purpose of the room that you want to paint. The next important thing to determine is the amount of paint that you will need to finish the job.

You will have to select and purchase the appropriate tools and accessories to help you to accomplish your painting task. Many paint tool and accessories stores will help you with this process. Remember purchase drop clothes for the floors to avoid messy and hard to clean spills. Also, purchase coveralls, or set aside some old clothes to wear as spills and splatters are inevitable when you work.

Once the painting is finished, you will have to contend with clean-up. Allow ample time for the paint to dry before you start re-arranging the furniture. You don’t want to mar your work before it’s dry! Finally, carefully wash your brushes and painting tools so they will be ready for your next project.
