Its only paint

So the holidays are once again upon us....its not a surprise...but many of us procrastinate about getting our home in order.....This year especially for New Jersey and New York....many of us have a lot of prepping after the horrific storm known as Sandy!   

For many this may be the first time you have attempted to paint...please remember it is only paint......

First, One gallon of paint covers about 350 square feet...

Second, even if you have just come home from the paint store, you should shake the can of paint, before using.

I recommend using a paint conditioner which slows down the drying time, but the results are less brush strokes and a smoother finish.

Paint a room in this order:

  1. Paint your room in the following order:
  2. Ceiling
  3. Molding, Trim, Baseboards,
  4. Cut in around the trim
  5. Walls
  6. Second coat on walls
  7. Clean up
