Painting 101

My daughter wants to paint her bathroom. She has a color picked out but I told her to make a list for the other essentials to paint (brushes, tape etc) but I have only done toll painting, no painting of a room in a house. I need help.

What advice do you give to add to the list for painting a bathroom?

  • Go to your local hardware store paint department and they can help you. You'll need drop cloth, primer, wall paint, trim paint, rollers, brushes.

  • cover all fixtures and tape around the ceiling and corners, it'll make it look neater when it's done:) how exciting!
