Letting Paint Dry

After you have finished painting the desired areas of your home’s interior, you should allow your walls enough time to properly dry before attempting to remove any painter’s tape. Removing painter’s tape too soon could result in paint lifting from your walls, leaving a speckled look that will need to be repainted. To make tape removal a breeze, you will want to use a razor blade to score the edge of your painter’s tape so that your paint does not crack or peel during removal. This process will give you the most aesthetically pleasing result possible, and can eliminate the need to repaint compromised areas.

Paint Trim First

What many first-time painters fail to realize is that there is an order to painting your home’s interior. For example, you wouldn’t want to paint your walls before painting your trim, as doing so would leave residual trim paint along your walls. Instead, consider painting your trim first, your ceiling second, and your walls last. This will allow you to paint each area of your home’s interior easily without having to worry about retouching areas that may have become damaged in the process.
