Color Selection and Prep

 
The act of painting is really only about 40% of the overall task required to complete your painting project.  The first step is to choose the desired color for the room to be painted.  This is an important step and may require more than the small sample you receive in the store.  On that note, keep in mind that the lights in the stores are a high wattage florescent lighting.  This is not the same lighting you have in your home and may impact the color when applied on your walls.
 
Some paint stores will provide a small sample of paint that you can paint on the wall to see how it looks with you décor and your life style.  There is nothing worse (maybe there is) to complete the painting project to step back and realize that you don’t like the color.  I recently painted a hallway for a client and they didn’t like the color (it didn’t look like the sample in the store).  The client chose a different color and we repainted the hallway.
 
After you have selected the perfect paint, it is time to prepare the walls for painting.  Think of the walls as a canvas that is going to be transformed.  After you take down all the paintings and other items on the wall, patch the nail holes.  You can buy a fast drying spackling that will require very little sanding.  When spackling remember that a little goes a long way.  You can purchase a plastic putty knife for under $2.00 that will be perfect for applying the spackling.  The other thing that can be done is to wash the dirty spots on the wall with TSP.  The TSP product can be purchased at most paint stores.
 
Enjoy shopping for colors!
