House Painting Made Easy

Got a little house painting project in mind? I know … there's about 33 other things you'd rather be doing with your time right about now. But if it's got to be done, now is as good a time as any to finally get motivated.

With sincere apologies to earnest weekend painters everywhere, doing a good paint job versus a very average painting job is all about doing all the little stuff the right way.

You'll need to familiarize yourself with basics like learning how to paint your walls. It does require a little more effort than just picking up a roller and brush and start flailing away.

Ditto for painting a ceiling. But before you even do these two things, you'll need to start at the beginning with what to do before you begin painting.
