As a professional house painter, we know that there is a lot to painting your home.
As we covered previously, the first thing you have to do is decide on how much paint you actually need for the project. The best way to go about this is to get the measurements of your home’s walls; be sure to take the furniture out of the rooms as you do this. You may also use plastic to cover the floors and other pieces of furniture.
