How should i paint a room that has white carpeting?

i really am bran new to all this. i just bought my first house. the house is gorgeous but the colors need some brightening up. when painting rooms with carpet is there a certain kind of tarp you need. do you staple it down cause i know tarps and newspaper can move. what are the best ways to paint rooms and not ruin the floors? i'm brand new to this. i've never painted a room before...also is there a quick way to get rid of new paint smell?

  • Do you have a Lowe's or a Home Depot nearby? They will help you with everything. Yes, you'll need a tarp. Weight it down so it won't move.

    Only way I know to evict the paint smell is to open the windows.

  • Carefully. :-) I couldn't resist....... I guess if it were me I would find an inspiration from something I liked and take it from there. Happy painting..
