Are you hoping to tackle the painting of your Walls and Trim work yourself? The professionals at Genoa Coatings LTD can help with these steps.
So the first thing you're going to need is to buy or gather up all the necessary tools.
- A paint brush
- A roller and paint tray
- A 10MM sleeve preferably micro fibre
- Pole sander and sand paper
- Green 1" masking take
- White 3M 1" masking tape
- Caulking preferably white
- A container of Dry Dex mud goes on pink dries white when ready to sand
- 2 mudding knives a 4" and a 3"

- Drop sheets
If you are going to be spraying all your trim there will be a bit more supplies needed but for this tutorial we will be brushing trim. We will start by caulking all loose baseboards and casings around windows and doors. Then we will be using a paint and primer in one for all casings.
The next step is to sand all walls being painted and mud all imperfections and holes in your walls. Next after patches are sanded you will have to spot prime all patches. When the spot priming is done you will start cutting in your walls where it meets the ceilings and where the walls meet the trim.
Be careful around the ceiling to make sure you don't get paint on it. After you have cut in all areas twice your ready for the paint rolling stage. When you start rolling make sure you follow the "W" formation make sure to roll top to bottom and be careful not to leave roller edges and sand in between coats.
When you are done painting all walls remove the tape from the baseboards and casing and you should be left with a great painting job.
