Part 1 - Prepare your surfaces for painting
Part 2 - After preparing, paint your surfaces using quality paints AND quality brushes and rollers.
The success of your paint project is determined upon part 1 and 2 being followed. No preparation guarantees any success in a quality finish.
You can use the best paint you like, but if it’s applied to a surface that hasn’t been sanded, filled, gapped and dusted off, it’s probably going to look unprofessional - and if you have purchased quality paints, but apply them using cheap budget brushes and rollers, you are still going to fail in getting that professional paint finish that you want.
It’s amazing how often people are prepared to spend $70.00 to purchase a 4 litre can of premium quality interior paint (which is only enough paint to put 2 coats on the average sized bedroom) and yet won’t spend a similar amount of money to get a couple of quality brushes and rollers that will help you paint the entire house!
Professional painters, and I mean “fussy” painters who guarantee and take pride in their work, will always prepare surfaces prior to painting, and then they will paint using not only quality paints, but also quality brushes and rollers.
If you want to get that successful, professional finish for yourself, and yes, it is possible, just follow these handy painting tips gained from years “on the tools”.
