Tricks of painting

Painting is an easy task and you can easily do it yourself and save much of your money. If you are thinking to paint any of the parts of your home, you must know the right things to apply. If you have done any such things before than it would be really easy for you to do it. If you haven’t done painting in your lifetime then you can give it a try as you are always open with two things if things don’t go right. You can either go for opting a professional to get your work done or you can repaint your home. Here are some of the tips and tricks for painting which will help you in the project.

Preparation for painting

  • Fill up any of the holes or any of the imperfections with the spackle before you start painting. After that sand the patches lightly. If you are having a crack then it is advisable to widen your crack slightly before you spackle. If you don’t do so it will just sit on the top.
  • Scape any of the peeling away and then smoothen the area.
  • If your walls are dirty then make sure to clean them before you apply paint on them. Take a damp cloth and clean the dust off your doors and windows.
  • Make use of paintable caulk for filling up any gaps in between the walls and then trim before you start painting the trim. Fill up any of the dings and divits inside the wood putty and wait for it to dry and then smooth it.
  • If you are in any doubt then prime it. Making use of primers will hide the dark colors and also block the stains and help your new painting job to last for a long period of time. It will be a necessity if you are painting the exposed woodwork and there are plenty of primers which can adhere to the glossy surfaces which will allow you to skip the sanding job first.
  • Stir the paint properly before you start with the painting work and avoid painting directly from the can. Pour the paint into a roller tray, if you are going to use a roller for painting but try to use a small bowl while you are painting with a brush. It will be much easier to hold and decanting the paint will also keep your can free from impurities which your brush might pick up while you are working.
  • If you are intending to use a tape then purchase painters tape which is generally blue and green and also marked in the similar manner only. Apply them in short and overlapping stripes and also presses them down very firmly along its edges for ensuring a crisp line.
  • Choose the color very wisely based upon the type of furniture you have and don’t just jump on to your favorites. Choosing color is very important decision while painting.

Painting your railings

Tips to maintain railings

Stair rails at home

Railings are quite important. They provide a support and safety for you and your family. If the railings of your house are made by iron, they will probably lose their luster with time. They will be deposited with rust and the entire look of the railing can be ruined. Railings are located towards the outdoors in most cases and so they are exposed to the changing conditions of the weather. The rainfalls or the scorching summer heat can make the color of the railings fade away.

It is not a very economic idea to get them replaced when you can easily get them painted. Your railings will look as good as new if you paint them in the correct fashion. Painting your railing completely depends on how your taste is. If you want to keep it simple, you can go with a single color. If you think that you would want your railing to be, attractive you can make a rainbow out of the bars. Make sure your railing is cleaned as much as possible before being painted.

Peeling lead paint from the wooden walls

Pink colored peeling lead paint

For decades there is a serious issue with lead paints and it is no different even today. Before 1978 almost every home had lead paint in one of the rooms. Since homes are passed to the family by their ancestors, lead paint homes even exists today. After the origination of lead paint, it got popular as lead paint is durable; it protects the paint from moisture and enhances the appearance and the color of paint.

Eventually lead paint got banned because it is very harmful for the environment and to the people as well. Lead can do fatal damage to humans especially to pregnant women and children as it causes reproductive and neurological damage. During home improvement or renovation paint dust and paint chips are exposed which increases the risks. Thus it is always recommended to perform lead paint removal safely to decrease the risk of exposure.
