Many Arlington homeowners shudder at the thought of interior painting. It is considering a chore: tedious, boring and not much fun. However, by utilizing the following tips, you can decrease painting time and get to the activities that you prefer. Of course you can save the most time by calling an Arlington interior painting contractor, but if you are determined to D.Y.I., then use the following to minimize time spent holding a brush.

1. Don’t try to do it all in one day. Set aside some time a day or two ahead of painting day to prep the area that you will be painting. Some of these preparations include moving furniture, laying down protective sheeting, taping trim and electrical outlets and gathering all painting supplies into one place.7. Don’t just toss any left over paint. Keep it tightly sealed in a cool dark place to use for touch ups. Even if you just keep a small container of it, you will be happy later on when you see normal wear and tear happen.

Again, for the best results it is wise to call an Arlington painting contractor. However, by following the previous tips, even a D.Y.I. job can look pretty.
