Step 1. Fill all cracks in the walls
When you prepare a wall surface to be painted, the first point to remember and very important point is to fill the cracks, punches and holes of the walls. To do this, you will need to apply two coats of plaster compound to these holes and punches in the walls. you can find the plaster compound from bunnings or any local paint store.
Step 2. Sand down the walls
After you inspect and fill all the punches ans holes, its time for you to sand the walls. Check all the plastering compound if its dry and make sure its dry and you can then move to sanding down your walls and all the holes and punches that you have filled.
Step 3. Clean your walls thoroughly
After you have done your sanding, you can see a lot of white dust on the walls and a lot of mess on the walls, your walls are ready, but not ready for the paint, so you need to clean all the mess and dust on the walls. you need to get white rags and clean all the walls that needed to be painted before you begin painting.
Step 4. Masking tap all Wall surrounding
Before painting you need to remove all the furniture and expensive items from the area of the paining. use masking tap and tap up everything that you don’t want to paint such as power points and etc.. this will ensure it remain paint free so you don’t have to clean it later.
Step 5. Choose your color
You can choose the best color of your choice, and taste, look around the room, if you want to match your furniture, that’s a good idea. keep in mind lighter color always goes to the ceiling and darker colors always goes to the floors, that’s the color combinations that you need to keep in mind. but whatever the recommendations, you can always chose color based on your taste and style that you like.
Step 6. Water based paint or Oil based paint?
Water based paints always goes on ceilings and Oil based paints goes to the walls, because oil based paints are more durable and you can use it for trims and if you have kids oil based paints are more durable and you can clean it very easily.
7. See if you need and undercoat
Lastly things to remember is there are instances when you will need primer, undercoat or sealer. If you working on new walls you need to apply undercoat if your walls are new, and see if you will need primer on some walls.
