DIY Painting and Decorating on Your Own

Do you want to paint your house by yourself? A new coat of paint can refresh and revitalize any room in your house. Paint is also a very cost effective way to change the look of a room. The best part about interior painting and decorating is that almost anyone can do it - all you need is the right material and a little bit of knowledge.

Painting Supplies


Your supply needs will vary depending upon the room that you are painting and the type of paint that you are using, but here is a basic list to get you started:

After you choose a color, you will also need to choose a finish. The finish determines how shiny the paint will be. Choices include flat, satin, semi-gloss, eggshell,  and gloss. Flat finish is hard to wipe clean and should only be used in low traffic areas that will not attract dirt. Satin, eggshell, and semi-gloss finishes are easy to wipe clean and can be used almost anywhere. Gloss finish is very shiny and is best reserved for small areas such as trim or molding.

Paint rollers and brushes are necessities. A good paint roller can paint an entire room. Choose one that has a fair amount of nap to it - the thicker the better. When it comes to brushes, everyone has their own individual preference. A small angle brush works well for trim and corners. A three inch flat brush or a paint pad will work well for the places that a paint roller can not reach. 

In addition to paint and paint applicators, you may also need drop cloths, cleaning rags, paint trays, fillers, painters mate, sandpaper, and a putty knife (if your walls are damaged and need repair), and a ladder or scaffolding. The ladder will need to be sturdy and stable to support your movements. Try choosing a ladder with a wide base or a flared bottom.

Some Painting and Decorating Tips

When painting, the most important thing you can do is take your time. If you move too fast, things could get sloppy. Also very important is the preparation work. Your painting project will go much smoother if you are properly prepared prior to painting. Here are some tips that can help:
Make sure that you have everything you need by organizing all of your supplies before you start painting.
Protect your furniture from paint splatters by moving it or covering it up.
Use low-tack masking tape to tape off baseboards and trim. Remember to remove the masking tape before the paint dries up.
Paint the ceiling first, then the walls before you start painting trim or woodwork.

Do not apply a second coat of paint until the first coat has dried.
