Before you start your next DIY paint job around the home, have a look at our top three tips to make it that little bit easier.
1. Make carrying heavy paint cans a breeze by placing a small amount of an old hose or tubing around the handle. Just cut a slit in the tube and feed it onto the handle.
2. Choosing the right time to paint is important to ensure a perfect finish. Wall temperatures should be kept above 10C throughout the painting process and as a general rule, extremely hot or cold temperatures should be avoided.
3. Before painting dip your brush in water, for water-based paints, or in turps for an oil-based paint. This helps to mix the paint and ensure it brushes well onto the wall surface.
With these tips you’ll be all set to create the perfect finish with your next DIY painting job.
