Paintbrush: of course a brush should be an obvious thing that comes into your mind when you think of painting. Painting brushes come in different sizes and forms. If you are painting a room, a big brush will do you good. You might as well need a small brush for the corners and more precise areas of the walls.

Paint roller: being the second most essential tool, a paint roller looks like a large roll with a handle. You dip the roller in paint and then roll back and forth across the wall. This tool makes painting faster and easier. Get a tray that you’ll pour paint into as you get your roller.

Painting clothing: you are not going on a mission to paint with your best clothes. No matter how careful or experienced you may be, you will not finish a painting jo without having some pain on your clothes. You need a set of overalls that you’ll wear during the entire painting session. 

Scrap papers: you’ll need something to cover the floor before you start painting. Newspapers or tissues can also serve this purpose. It’s very possible that you are going to pill some paint and the last thing you’d want is to get it to spill on your floor.

Don’t paint the places near the corners using a roller. 

4. Embark on the corners

You had previously excluded the corners when painting main surfaces, now it’s time to work on them. For the corners, you’ll use painting brushes instead of the paint roller. Dip the brush in paint and brush over the corners and sides of the wall. 

5. Allow time for the paint to dry

You are not getting into your house before the paint dries. Otherwise, you’ll destroy a good job. Depending on the thickness of the paint you used, you’ll need to it for a few hours. You might be eager to enter your vibrant looking house but remember you can only do that when it’s completely dry. 

6. Clean up

There is one final thing before you can settle in the room- do some cleanup. Enter the house and clean up all the painting tools.
