Craft Room Painting Tips In Unionville, PA
Your craft room can be the place in which you make all of your creative dreams come true without the distractions of the rest of the house — and some people like to make it really special with walls that are painted in a distinct style.
When you want to have a well painted craft room, it’s a good idea to follow a few basic tips that will ensure that the room not only looks nice, but keeps that nice look for years to come.
Let’s have a look at some craft room painting tips that will help you have a better looking craft room.
1. Clean The Area And The Surfaces To Be Painted
One thing that you’re going to want to make sure that you do before you paint and even before you apply the primer coat that should nearly always get applied before paint (more on this later) is to fully clean.
This means that you’re not only going to be cleaning the surface that you want to be painted but also the area nearby that surface — as you’re walking around the room if you have dusty areas, you can almost bet that said dust will end up in your paintwork.
Making the time to clean like this will help you to have better painted walls that don’t look like dusty walls with paint spread over them.
2. Take Most Everything Out
As painful as it might sound, you are likely going to have to take out just about everything from the room before you start painting or at the very least move everything as close to the center of the room as possible.
The fewer things you have in the room where you are painting, the less of a hard time you will have while painting — these things tend to get in your way as you move around the room, and if you spill paint you might get it on said things.
As mentioned, it’s entirely possible you won’t be able to remove certain things from the room and that’s when you would move them away from the walls and cover them with a tarp so they don’t get paint on them.
3. Make A Schedule
A painting project can be quite a chaotic thing if you don’t nail it down with some kind of schedule — and this will really come down to measuring the walls that you have to paint first.
Doing this will let you not only figure out how much paint and primer you’re going to need to buy before you step into the room to paint for the first time, but it will let you make a nearly precise calculation on how long painting the walls will take.
Since you will have to wait for surfaces to dry after you apply each coat of primer and paint, you should be able to make a good schedule for yourself including well placed breaks for the surfaces to dry.
4. Get Creative (With Color Choices)
It’s your craft room — you don’t have to limit yourself to rather drab colors like eggshell or even one of the many shades of gray.
Your craft room is meant to be a place where you can create things — putting fabric together, for example, and why not celebrate it with colorful walls?
Of course, your walls are ultimately going to look how you want them to but it’s a fun opportunity to get the walls to be bright and full of life!
5. Use Primer
Lastly, you should bear in mind that when you are painting your craft room, you should apply a coat of primer before your first coat of paint.
Doing so will make the paint stay on the walls longer and also help to better cover any hard to remove stains than the best paint could ever cover.
Make use of a coat of primer and you will have an overall better painted room.
