The first thing that you should keep in mind is that you have to be organized. You need to do the preparations beforehand. You need to move all your items such as furniture to a safe place. You can also pile up the furniture in the middle of the room and cover it with plastics. Remove all the lights from the ceilings and disconnect all the electrical connection, just to be on the safe side.
Before you actually start paint, repair all the damages on the walls and ceiling. You can use primers to cover the damage areas. Fix all the dents and cracks which are looking unpleasant. If there are larger cracks use plaster to cover it and then paint it. You must also use soggy sponge to remove all the dust from the wall.
On the day when you need to do paint, make sure you remove all the outlets cover and other switches, wall hangings, scones and other things. Use the painter tape mask all around the windows and ceilings and door frames. The tape must be firmly attached.
Make sure that you only paint the dry and neat surface. The weather is also very important, if it is moister than you must close all the windows and switch on air conditioners before you start painting. While you are doing the paint, open all the windows and fans, so that the fresh air comes and paints get dry quickly.
You need to have a proper brush, there are many sizes of brushes. The brushes used on the walls are about 4 to 5 inches, this length is used for walls. Another brush is known as trim brush it is 2 to 3 inches wide and used to paint the doors and frames of windows. The brush used to paint the detail area is known as sash brushes it has a tip. You will learn a lot from the experiences.
You just have to put the brush in the can and load it heavily, use the edge of the brush to put the extra paint back. Make sure you make long and smooth strokes.
While you are painting make sure you are properly covered and protect your eyes. When you use rollers there is an extension which can help you to paint at high areas. Don’t load the roller with too much paint. Apply the paint in the “W”pattern. Make sure you cover all the areas and especially the spots. Do two coats as the second coat will give the color you actually wanted.
When you get tired and you need a break, always wrap up your all brushes and roller and wrap them well in the plastic bag. The paint rollers are cheap and yet disposable, but the brushes are very expensive, so don’t ever put them in the trash. Clean your brushes after the paint. Wrap the brushes in the plastic bag and put them in the safe place. Make sure you clean the space after you paint it.
