How to Paint a Room Like a Pro - 2021 DIY Tips.

Painting can be intimidating, but YOU CAN DO IT! Learning how to paint a room is one of those jobs that seems really difficult, but is totally doable if you watch several video trainings, and put your mind (and your weekend) to it. These are the steps I followed to make it happen, it wasn't easy but it was worth it. 

1. Probably the most important: Watch training videos in YOUTUBE, there are plenty of trainings that will prep you and your mind before you start. 

Some videos we would recommend:

2. Pick a colour and finish:
Get some samples! Don't be like us that we didn't like the first colour we chose and now we have an extra 10L of paint at our house. It is crucial to get some samples of the colours you like before buying the colour that best fits. Believe us, colours look different depending on the room and light, you do not want to make a mistake. 


If you need some inspiration from brands we love:

3. Get your supplies

  • Covers (you do not want to taint your favourite sofa)
  • Painter's Tape
  • Paint Brushes
  • Paint Tray
  • Paint Roller

4. Prep the walls
- Cover the floor and put all the furniture covered in the middle.

- Clean the walls and improve imperfections. 
- Get the tapes and make sure you cover all the space around the perimeter of the space you plan to paint.

5. Now PAINT!
Start by painting the borders and corners, after all is covered get your ROLLER and start by doing a "W" pattern until the wall is covered. Then go up and down with the roller to make sure it is perfect :) Get at least 2 coats, if the new colour is a vibrant colour try to paint 3 coats to make it look better.
