While you don't have to be a pro to learn how to paint like one, there is a little more to a good paint job than just putting some colour on the wall. Be prepared, stay organised and you'll be able to get on with the satisfying business of transforming your room. So before you crack open your first can of paint, schedule some time for prep.
First start by making sure you have everything you need. Usually this will consist of a roller and roller tray, paint brushes, masking tape, sanding paper, dust sheets and last but not least the paint. You may also need a scraper and filler to repair any damages to the wall.
