DIY Painting Articles

Do your walls, ceiling and furnishings need a spruce up?

Wouldn’t it be great if our home always kept that clean, fresh-painted look it had when you first got the place? Sadly, that’s not the reality as house paint gets worn and paint design trends change over time.

Most people have had to face painting a house, apartment, garage or basement themselves at some point. DIY home painting is a dreaded and tiring job for many people, but it doesn’t have to be so. With the right tools and techniques (plus some loud music) DIY painting can be quite alright. Without the right tools and techniques, though, it can be a nightmare.

Our articles will step you through the correct techniques for painting your home, furniture, fence or other home project, whether you’re using a roller or sprayer. We also review the best products and paints to get your job done quickly, cleanly and correctly. As well as house paint, we cover spray cans and spray painting tips, wood staining and oiling, paint removal and clean up, and review the top commercial paint sprayers for professional and semi-professional painters.

So, whether you’re painting your house or apartment, your shed or chairs, interior walls or exterior walls, or your car or commercial business, we’ve got you sorted.
