Choose colors that suit you, and be sure to get ones with primer, so you don’t have to paint twice. That’s no fun! Take the time and do it right, then bask in your success.

Priming the Wall:

Scrape the excess old paint from the wall to have a smooth finish. If there are holes in your wall, you need to fill the holes using a Spackle knife with lightweight putty. Next, sandpaper the spot, ensure the wall is ready, then prime the spot and paint away.
