Have you noticed a few dings and scuffs in the paint job around your home this summer? Time to break out the brush and give those spots a touch up. Here are some helpful tips if you plan on sprucing up the paint around your home.
It’s a good practice to give your space a good cleaning before you paint so you know what is dirt and what is an actual scratch. It also gets you up close and personal to your medium. The hard-to-reach places, the ceilings, the areas around doors, the windows and the light switches are all common places where chips and stains form. And they’re all good places to start.
It’s easy to get carried away and “accidentally” end up painting your room a whole new color. If that is in your plan, then paint away. If you are on a fixed budget, you may want to take this into consideration. Do you have paint leftovers? How big of a can of paint will you need? These are all important factors to pay attention to when planning.
Depending on the size and nature of the touch up, you will be spending a good amount of time and energy in revitalizing the paint jobs in your home. For larger touch ups, be sure to protect the rest of your space with ample painters tape and protective coverings for furniture and flooring.
