It’s spring time and we’re all getting our houses in order.
When you go to touch up your walls this spring follow these tips:
-Make sure the paint is at room temperature.
-Look for any separation in the paint, and smell. If this is present, than the paint is bad. Time to get a new quart for touch up.
-Try a magic eraser on walls first. I’ve had a client us a magic eraser on the ceiling to remove wine stains, and it saved her bundles of money.
-When applying the paint, ‘feather’ out the paint. Meaning, don’t ‘dab’ it. You want to make sure that there’s no distinct line. When it dries, it’ll look seamless if you feather it.
-Don’t use the roller! That’s considered ‘dabbed’! It’ll look awful, so pick up the brush, instead and feather it out.
