3 Indoor Painting Rules You Need To Know

27 Oct
  1. High quality paint means fewer coats.  Sometimes another coat of paint doesn’t seem like that big of a deal.  But think about drying time too, how much is your time worth?  I love the fact that Laney’s Old Village Paints often only need one coat- ONE COAT!
  2. Preparation is 50% of the job.  Cleaning the surface you are going to paint is invaluable.  Often, people skip this step.  But you need a clean surface so that the paint adheres to the surface, and not to a layer of dirt!  Putting down a drop cloth and purchasing/using a nice brush that won’t spread bristles all through your job are also key parts of preparation.
  3. A smaller carrying can for paint can make the job go faster.  I interviewed a professional painted who always transferred a few cups of paint into a plastic cup when he was painting with a brush.  He said it made it much easier to carry, especially when climbing up and down a ladder.  He was right! This is one of my favorite time savers.


What is your favorite interior painting tip?

I have lived a long time and am convinced that God governs in the affairs of men. If a sparrow cannot fall to the ground without His notice, is it probable that an empire can rise without His aid? I move that prayer imploring the assistance of Heaven be held every morning before we proceed to business.- Benjamin Franklin
