Tips for repainting your trim and doors
- Some tools will be required to get the job done, these include: a bucket, mask, sander, sanding block, paintbrush, paint roller, roller sleeve, paint scraper, roller tray, rags, putty knife, light, vacuum, utility knife
- Additionally, materials such as paint, primer, foam brushes, and sandpaper will also be necessary
- Pick a paint that speaks to you and that will look good with the rest of the colors in your home (consider that flat finishes create scuff marks and glossy finishes make flaws more noticeable)
- Clean the surface and remove hardware
- Fill any holes as necessary
- Sand the surface until it is smooth before beginning the painting process
- Use a vacuum to clean up the sanded area
- Prime, and then paint with rollers for large areas and brushes for smaller areas
- Allow time to dry for the majority of the day
