– Sand away flaws. In order to end up with walls and woodwork that are perfectly painted, you have to start with a surface that is perfectly smooth. You need to have a perfect sanding job. Sanding will level out joint compounded patches and will flatten the ridges near the nail holes. Sanding will also remove the rough spots and the burrs. What you need to do is to sand the walls from its baseboard towards the ceiling with fine sandpaper on a pole. After, you sand horizontally on the baseboard and the ceiling. Do not put a lot of pressure though on the pole or the head will flip and damage the wall.
– Use tinted primer. Before professional painters paint the walls, they first fill the holes and patches with joint compound. If you paint directly the wall, the compound will suck out the moisture from the paint and will give it a flat and dull look. Those spots will notably look different from the other parts of the wall. In order to avoid this, professionals prime the walls first before painting.
– Press tape with the use of a putty knife. One of the most discouraging things when you have already finished painting is to peel the tape from the woodwork and discover that the paint bled through it. In order to avoid the hassle of having to scrape off the paint, ensure that the tape will adhere before you starting the job. A painter that has more than a decade of experience suggested that you apply tape first over the wood and then run the putty knife over the top of the wood to press down the tape and have a good seal.
