Many people think that this can be a nice project to do in your weekend. This also quite simple. But painting a wall can be nightmare if you don’t know the guidance to do it. Painting wall is very popular because it is the most affordable way to get a refreshed look on your interior home design. So, here we have some simple steps that you can follow on how to paint your walls and get the best result.
First, you have to prepare the wall. This is really important step to do. Clean the wall. You can use sandpaper to do it. You have to fill every hole, crack, and any other imperfection. Well, I know this sound boring and totally not the fun part. But, it is really important to be done because the wall surface condition will affect the result of the painting itself. After you make sure that it is clean, then you can start to do the next step. It is called priming. It is also something you have to do. There are 3 reasons why you have to do the priming.
