Have one wall or a few rooms in your home that desperately need painting and want to stretch your DIY legs? We found a great article and how-to on Refresh Restyle about how to prep your walls before painting.

“To get a professional look prep the surface before you start. You’re like me, temped to just crack open a can of paint and start painting. Don’t do it yet…”

Exactly as the author said, most of us just want to get to painting. Take it from Refresh Style and the tips from our professional painters at JCP, preparation is one of the most important steps in painting! While we in the Southwest might not need to use tape on our brushes, the steps listed in the article above are knowledgeable and incredibly helpful.
