Do it yourself interior painting is by far the most affordable way to freshen up any room in your home. The advantage of painting is that it’s not terribly difficult and doesn’t require “military” training. All you need is a little patience, practice, and some helpful advice.
These painting tips can help even first time Do It Your Selfer’s achieve professional results. Follow these tips and you’ll not only paint better, you’ll work faster and neater, too.
It’s very important to take the time to properly prepare the walls and other surfaces BEFORE you start to paint. This means cleaning them with a solution of detergent and water, after which they should be rinsed and allowed to dry. If there are any cracks or holes in the walls, this is the time to repair them with spackle compound or a good-quality acrylic caulk.
Spend the extra money on the best tools that will give you the results you want, the first time you paint. Using high quality brushes and rollers will help you apply the paint more evenly to get professional looking results, even if this is your first time painting.
Be sure to use brushes and rollers with synthetic bristles and covers when applying latex paints. These brushes should maintain the proper stiffness and the rollers will maintain their shape even when exposed to a lot of water.
I cannot stress enough to my clients about how important it is to purchase only top quality 100% acrylic latex interior paints. It’ll make every Do It Your Selfer’s job so much easier and give you the quality results you’re looking to achieve.

Top quality 100% acrylic latex paints are extremely durable, plus they resist fading, so your paint job will look great for years to come.
Taking on the challenge of doing it yourself interior painting can be such a rewarding experience. You’ll not only save money, you’ll be amazed and satisfied of a job well done!
