Thinking of a DIY project to paint your bedroom wall? Here is your guide!
Channeling your inner creative streak by taking part in a do-it-yourself paint project for your bedroom wall can be a fun task. The bedroom is where you can get the freedom to do what you want as it reflects your tastes, styles, and choices. Here is where you can be who you are without filters.
Get started on your DIY project with these points in mind:
- Plan your project – Go backward and think of how you would want your wall to look once it is done. Plan it in terms of the time, the budget, and also additional resources that might be required.
- Choose the colour – Carefully look at the berger paints colour palette and decide upon the shades you would want for the wall – warm or cool, neutral or loud, etc. Keep in mind the existing furniture and see how the colours would complement them.
- Unique designs – These days, painting ideas have no limitations. If you want to move further than a solid wall, you can choose to take it up a notch by adding stencil designs, murals, paintings, texture paints, etc to the wall.
- Research – Research on the best prices, best paints, best weather to complete the task in (usually summer as the paints dry faster), proper techniques, etc.
- Buy your tools and materials – While purchasing the supplies, of course, you will include the basics like paints and rollers, however, an important item that is often forgotten is wall putty to help the paint remain durable. Don’t forget rags, plastic sheets, painter’s tape as well. Make sure to check for the waterproof paint price before making any purchase.
- Prepare the room – You would not want to damage other parts of the room while beautifying one part of it. Ensure that you are covering the furniture, bed, cupboards, and other parts of the room with ample plastic sheets. The painter’s tape can help to seal off the edges of the room or the switchboards.
- Ventilate – It would be ideal to paint the wall during the summer as compared to the rainy season or the winters. The paint takes longer to dry when the climate is humid. Along with the summer heat, ensure ample ventilation into the room post the paint job and in between coats. Keeping the fans on will also speed up the process
- Clean up – It is easy to relax when the painting coats are done, however, you cannot live in a room with plastic sheets. Make sure to seal off the paint boxes, if any, so that they don’t dry up. Wash the rollers and brushes in water to keep them clean. Take off the tape and plastic sheets once the residual paint and splatters are dry.
DIYs can be fun if executed well and with enthusiasm. Keeping these points in mind will also take care of the cautiousness required while painting.
