Did you know that Sherwin Williams now carries a line of paint for HGTV? Beautiful colors that coordinate together to take the guess work out of matching paint from room to room. Be sure and check it out before your next painting project.
Speaking of your next painting project, here are a few tips that will help you paint like a professional.
First make sure to patch and fill all hole, cracks, and flaws with your favorite spackle or joint compound. Fill the space and smooth it over to match the level of the wall. Let dry thoroughly before painting over it or you could end up with shrinking or dimples in the area patched. Next sand over the area gently to make extra sure it is smooth.
Wipe walls with a damp cloth to be sure you are painting over a smooth surface. Tape trim and cover floor and furniture. Primer is a nice addition at this point but I have found with all of the wonderful paint and primer combos out there, that it is not necessary. Start painting and have fun.
