If you want to renovate a room by redoing the wall covering, you need to understand a few points. Once you have chosen your paint color, its type and the day of the work… let's go, the work begins! And you are not at the end of your pain if you are not well prepared. Even if you know how to repaint a wall, in the heat of the moment, some mistakes (sometimes irreversible) can be made.

Do not forget to protect the other walls

We can never say it enough, but the sine qua none condition for your painting work to go well is to protect the adjacent walls (if you only paint one wall) and the floor. Some paint tool kits provide rolls of scotch tape that are narrow (about 2 cm). If you are a beginner, do not hesitate to buy a roller with a larger diameter, even if you want to stick two strips if you are really afraid of overflowing, to repaint a wall.

Wring the roller well before painting

It is often advisable to wet the roller before painting. However, we sometimes forget to advise to wring it well! And here is the drama. Your paint turns into watercolor when you pass your first strokes of the roller… So remember to wring the roller well before use, in a cloth for example, to be sure that it will not make water on the wall.

Don't trust the result of the first coat

Often after the first coat, the result is not uniform. You can see some traces of the roller or the borders painted with a brush may be darker than the parts painted with a roller. Do not panic ! The second layer should normally standardize everything. And if it is still not perfect after the second layer, you can always pass a third!

Watch out for projections!

If you clumsily drop a few drops of paint on the unprotected floor, remember to wipe it off right away before the paint dries. If it's glycero, a touch of white spirit should be enough, if it's acrylic, a damp sponge. And if you paint your wall with acrylic paint, watch out for water splashes that will leave streaks on the wall.

Don't wait to clean your tools

Finally, when your painting work is finished, clean your tools in stride. Because if you wait for the paint to dry, you will just have to throw your brushes in the trash.
