Protect your siteA can of paint spilled on the floor, a piece of furniture or clothes stained by paint splashes ... and there it is drama! To avoid any material or bodily damage, you will understand, some golden rules must be observed among which the protection of your site.
First step therefore, start by emptying your room: from furniture, to curtains, passing through carpets, unclutter the space as much as possible and place a plastic sheet on the ground. If this is not possible, place your furniture in the center of the room and also cover it with a tarp or old sheets. Also bring comfortable clothes that do not fear splashing, think of a bandana or cap to protect your hair. And, if necessary, wear protective glasses and latex gloves. Once these rules are respected, you can get started on your site!
Prepare the support to paint
Are your walls cracked? Open them as much as possible with a scraper then fill them with plaster then when everything is dry, sand! And, if your old paint is peeling off, remove it with a wire brush and then sand the surface with sandpaper.
Choose a suitable materialRollers that are too thin or too thick, brushes that lose their hair… think about the choice of your material which must be adapted to the quality of the paint chosen. For a better grip, opt for a conical brush with long synthetic bristles attached to the handle and don't forget to bring a tray with a grid to drain the excess paint before passing the roller.
For plinths and flat surfaces, prefer flat brushes and for moldings and corners, round brushes. Also consider purchasing protective tape and a stepladder.
The passage of the rollerBefore you can get started, do not neglect the step of the undercoat for good adhesion to the support then, when the surface is dry apply adhesive tape which will prevent you from overflowing. This step done, it will be a matter of dosing the paint on your roller. Beforehand, you will have taken the time to assess the amount of paint to use.
To do this, once your paint has been mixed, dip the roller in half and remove the excess using the grid. In case of drips, do not panic! If the paint is not yet dry, iron it with a roller to spread it well. If it is dry, it will be necessary to sand and apply a new coat of paint.
