How to prepare interior and other stuff before you paint
For a lot of people, painting is dreadful. They complain that it’s messy and fussy, and that they don’t always get the results they hoped for. The truth is that most people end up with less-than-desirable results because they ignore the importance of proper preparation.
This is a quote by JIM LACEY from one of the “Home Repairs” magazines. He explains the overall aspects of how to prepare before you paint.
“ In the 20 years that I’ve been painting houses, I’ve learned how to size up quickly the results of poor prep work.

At each job, I follow a basic routine that ensures a long-lasting, attractive paint job. I start by removing items from the room. Large items, such as couches, can be moved to the center of the space and covered with drop cloths. With a fresh canvas, I can begin the real prep work.”
