Painting Old Walls

Cover Furniture, Rugs and Floors with a Tarp

Spread the tarp to room stuffs that you cannot remove. Wall fixtures, outlet plates and switch should be unscrewed and removed. You have the option to tape them off using a painter’s tape if you don’t like to remove them. Also, you need to take away nails, hangers and screws.

Use a Vinyl Spackle to Path Holes, Depressions and Dents

The vinyl spackle should dry quickly and expand as well as contract with your wall. You can spread the spackle thinly on a putty knife and then draw it over the surface while you gently press it. Let it dry for around one hour.

Lightly Sand Spackle Areas

This is necessary so that you can feather the patches’ edges flush with your wall. Sand down ridges and bumps. The wall can be vacuumed using a soft brush as an attachment to eliminate particles from sanding.

Apply the Primer

Paint four-inch strips of primer along ceilings windows, corners and door frames as well as baseboard edges using a trim brush. This is helpful in preventing you from touching woodwork as you use the paint roller. After you are done, use warm water in washing the brush and set this aside to dry. Roll your paint roller until you coat the whole surface. Roll it over your walls using crossing and smoothing strokes. Smaller depressions found in the sealing and old wall can be filled by the primer covering stains and old paint. Allow the primer coat to dry totally for 4 hours.
