1.) Clean the room and empty all the furnitures in it. Also clear the wall and ceilings from decorations like posters and paintings. Nails, tacks, tapes and other hangers should be removed. Patch holes which will no longer be used.

2.) Cover every inch of the floor with which you do not want to be painted with. This is to avoid painting portions you don’t want to get painted. To avoid messes, make sure that everything is covered, specially when you are painting your bedroom with red and brown.

3.) See to it that the walls are clean before you start painting. If the wall is dirty, use a sponge mop in removing the dirt to make your work faster and easier. After moping, rinse the wall well with water and allow it to dry.
