How to Paint the Interior Walls of your Home

Painting interior walls of your homeMoving to a new place? Does it need a new paint job? I say save the money and paint it yourself! With these step-by-step instructions, you’ll have your interior walls painted in no time.

The most important part of painting is the prepping. A good start is the key to a great paint job. Before beginning, cover the floors with drop cloths. This will protect the floor from paint and other materials.

After you’ve covered the floors, check the walls for scratches or holes. If you find any surface imperfections use a putty knife to fill them with light weight spackle. Make sure to remove any excess spackle using the putty knife.After that dries, smooth the repaired areas with a small piece of sand paper. This will allow you to paint evenly on the walls.

Clean any dust or cobwebs that you see around the walls. Remove as much as you can. You don’t want spots to be raised up under the new coat of paint.

For a clean, professional look apply painter’s tape to door and window trims, baseboards, molding, and other areas that you’re not painting. While applying the tape, make sure to press firmly around the edges to avoid any “bleeding”.
Time for primer! Take a thick paint brush with and paint 2-3 inches of primer on the edges of the walls where they meet the corners, door and window trims, baseboards, molding, door hinges, etc. This will make the actual painting, with rollers, much easier because the rollers can’t reach those confined places. Once you’ve finished, use the roller to do the rest. Work with one section at a time painting strokes top to bottom in a V or W shape. Always paint over wet primer to give it a clean look. Let the primer dry.

You’re almost done! Once the primer is dry, use the paint brush to paint 2-3 inches on the edges, like you did with the primer. Once that’s dry, use the rollers to paint, using the same technique that you did with the primer. Remember, when painting in strokes, always paint over wet paint to make everything flow nicely together.

Take off the painter’s tape and enjoy your beautiful new painting job!
