What most people fail to get is that it takes much more than just paint in order to successfully change the color of your wall. There are some specific tools that should be used, and rules that should be followed if you want your wall to look like it has been painted by a professional. Keep on reading this article as we guide you through the tools and rules on how to paint your wall like a pro.
Prepare the wall
Search the wall for any nail holes. And try to cover them by patching them with a spackling compound. Moreover, it is better to find one that has a built-in primer. This way, you will not have to prime the small dent before you start painting. Once you locate the dent, apply a tiny amount of the spackling compound and put it as tightly as you can against the wall with a specific knife. However, if you do not do that, you will end up with big spots that are slightly raised.
Prepare the Paint
Once you decide which color you want your wall to be, and get a bucket, you should use your paint can opener in order to remove the lid. After that, make sure you stir the paint very well. You should stir it every time it’s left for more than 15 minutes because the paint separates as it sits.
Use a strong, Roller that has a good quality. It needs to not flex on the wall. Moreover, the roller cover depends on the smoothness of your wall; the thinner the roller cover, the smoother the wall should be. Additionally, you need an extension for your roller so you can paint the whole wall. Moreover, you have to use an angled brush to paint around edges. After you are done, wipe away any mistake you have made by removing any unwanted paint spots by using a good quality rubbing alcohol.
