Preparing to Paint

If you are painting, an hour or two spent preparing the room will have huge a impact on the final result. Remove molding, outlet covers, and light fixtures so that they don't get paint on them. Anything that you can't remove, cover with plastic or masking tape. Your reward will be a much more attractive and professional looking paint job.

Preparing to Paint

I just love painting, but, it is the prep work that I don't like at all. But, I totally agree with Fisher, take your time and do it right. You will be much happier with the end results! (06/29/2006)
