Our Best Pro Painting Tips
#1) Wait for dry weather.
Humidity means drips and slow drying, so avoid painting on a rainy day. If you must paint when it’s humid, take your time — and take advantage of slow-drying paint to correct your errors before moving on to the next coat.
If you’re impatient, you’ll be tempted to skip this five-minute step, but don’t.
You will never regret the time you spend covering floors, furniture, and hardware before you begin a paint project. Drop cloths are a must, trash bags and small plastic sandwich bags secured with tape are an easy way to protect doorknobs and other items.
