DIY Painting Tips

  1. Consider painting walls neutral colors that will not go out of style.
  2. Use fun painted accent walls to add to your space.
  3. Think out of the box and use bright and fun colors for furniture makeovers.
  4. Use other materials like contact paper or gel stain along with paints for unique DIY home projects.
  5. Never throw away your leftover paint. You never know when you just might need a little extra color.
  6. Always test the paint in your actual lighting.
  7. Don’t be scared, it is only paint and can always be redone.
  8. Make sure to properly prep surfaces if you want it to last.
  9. Take your time. Saving wet brushes and rollers in Ziploc bags can be a lifesaver.
  10. Consider painting more than just walls. Look at trim, cabinets and even flooring to completely makeover any space.
  11. Repaint things that have already been painted. You would be shocked at what a fresh coat of paint can do.
