|Cannot wait until it's all finished!|
|I am not patient. Covered up coffee pot, etc with paper. Pulled it off when finished.|
Guess what? It's pretty easy! You can do it!
There are 4 basic steps:
1.) Clean. Clean all surfaces that will painted. Use TSP. You can find at at Home Depot and other hardware stores. It's a concentrate. Mix with water clean off areas. Use a 6 in 1 paint tool for scraping gunk.
|The wall components are easy! Done and dry in one afternnoon.|
3.) Ready to paint. Use a water-based Primer. They don't need to look perfect. You'll seen lines. No big deal.
4.) Paint! Use a water-base acrylic. We used, and it was right off the shelf. If I need more it won't be a problem to match it! Paint. Wait, sand lightly and re-paint. Make sure it dries thoroughly between each coat.
Here's the video we watched. I recommend it!
Things to keep in mind:
Make a list of items you'll need when you watch the video.
I recommend doing it in small sections. Clean up and get back to normal by that evening. Every night, I got to see the section we had done all finished and looking good.
Put your brushes and rollers in gallon sized zip-locks and freeze! YES!! No cleaning the bruches. Thaw out and re-use the next day.
We ordered our hardware on Amazon! It was inexpensive and came in two days! We'll update our progress and show you the hardware next!
