Prepare everything before painting: Khaled Sarkar
Remove all furniture from the room before painting. If that’s not possible, move them away from the walls and place them in the middle of the room. Cover them completely with plastic wrap or a thick cloth, so as not to spoil the paint.

While painting, the paint falls from the brush onto the floor. To avoid wasting time picking them up, let the floor get paper before painting.

Take down pictures, mirrors, other decorative items on the walls. Remove ceiling fans, bulbs, tube lights from walls and cover them with cloth or paper.

Before painting
First brush the color of your choice on the walls of the room. Before the paint dries, sweep it with a household broom.

If the house was previously painted, rub the paint well with a coarse sandpaper. If you have trouble using sandpaper, use a sander machine. It will not spread dust and fall into eyes and mouth. You can use a cleanser to remove the previous color.

If there are cracks or holes in the wall, first fill them with something like pudding.

Apply primer and let the wall dry before painting. Primer is also called base coat of paint. Several companies of primers are available in the market. Primer helps the paint adhere to the wall better and covers any blemishes on the wall. After rubbing the wall, apply the primer with a brush or roller.
