Shopping For Your Painting Project

By Paul James Harrison

Our houses can be renewed by simply painting its walls. Even if professionals are more likely to do a high quality job, very often we decide to do this on our own. The patience, the time and the knowledge to do it are the main reasons you have to start planning.

This improvement of the home became more accessible to everyone, because the necessary materials are available in many specialized stores. There are many competitors on this market and they are all offering the tools you need. A well organized mind will first write a shopping list according to the stages of painting.

Cleaning the surface is the first stage. A dirty surface with old paint debris wont allow the new paint to adhere well. For this stage you will need at least: a heavy scrub, a wire brush, sandpaper and water to thoroughly clean any foreign body. When cleaning there is a lot of dust in the air which could affect your eyes and breathing. Protection equipment like goggles and a mask is required throughout this process.

The decision upon the paint to use is very important as well as enjoyable. The type of paint you buy will be different when you are painting an indoor wall, from the case when your wall is exposed to the weather conditions. The primer is also on your shopping list. It needs to be applied before the paint. The next items on the list are the tools for applying paint. They can be either brushes or rollers and in some cases spray-guns. Emulsions with bad smell should be avoided.

Cleaning up is the final stage but it needs to be planned from the very beginning. The materials for cleaning are drop cloths, mineral spirits for oil based paint and plenty of water for water based paint. To ease your work in this stage you should think about covering the floor and the furniture when working indoors.

While organizing your shopping list you will get many ideas from magazines or professionals. But after all your work is finished all that is left is the color on your walls, so choose it right.
