Carefully Determine Your Colors
Clear The Area
Prep The Surfaces
If your walls have already been decorated, you do not necessarily need to use a primer, but you still need to do some maintenance work to ensure that your new paint will stick to the surface. If your ceiling or walls are in a really bad shape, apply an oil-based or water-based primer over sturdier stains, sand the spots with a size 220 fine-grit sandpaper and let it dry.
Apply The Paint
Protect your trim work with masking tape. Stir the paint well. Paint from the top. Paint in “W” shapes. Wait for the first coat to dry. Depicting a ceiling on your own may be arduous, but it is not impossible. Cut in the edges of your ceiling. Mentally divide your ceiling into a grid. Do not overdo it with the paint. Varnishing, painting, or staining, no matter what approach you prefer for your primed paneling, you need to use a proper thinner in order to dilute the finishing material.
Apply The Finish
Without a coat of finish, no painting job is complete. Matte finish is completed with latex paint. The non-reflective characteristics of the finish make it suitable for ceilings and walls. Eggshell or satin finish is perfect if you want an extra seen on your surfaces. This type of finish will last you longer than flat paints. Gloss or semi-gloss finishes are shiny and durable and are primarily used to paint or seal wooden surfaces.
