Living Room Makeover Part 2: Tips for the Perfect Paint Job

I spent all yesterday transforming my living room walls from blah beige to bright white. I’ve painted many a room in my day, and here are some tips I’ve picked up over the years:

  1. Prep work is important: dust all molding and tape everything.
  2. Fill all holes with speckle and let dry, sand.
  3. Flat paint works best on walls. Two coats of flat paint are even better.
  4. Tarp EVERYTHING. It’s as if uncovered floors just attract paint drops.

I get a lot of questions about the print above my desk, its titled 0 Through 9 by Jasper Johns.
