What is needed to paint walls?
- TAPE. We're big fans of the standard ScotchBlue painter's tape ($7.30, Amazon) for taping off trim and ceilings.
- DROP CLOTH. Having a drop cloth will mean less clean up later.
- PAINT TRAY.
- PAINT ROLLER & REFILLS.
- SMALL BRUSHES.

Similarly, it is asked, what do I need to know before painting a room?
- Test paint samples on the wall first. A small swatch of paint will give you an idea of what color you want, but that color might be totally different once it's up on your wall, like the interior design equivalent of Harvey Dent.
- Get the right accessories.
- Prime your walls with tinted primer.
- Brush before rolling.
Secondly, when decorating where do you start? 10 Ways to Start Decorating a Room from Scratch
- Find a Piece of Artwork You Love. When we design the rooms for our catalog, we have the same dilemma.
- Start with a Rug.
- Find a Fabulous Fabric.
- Inspiration Elsewhere.
- Choose a Color.
- Land on a Layout.
- Start with a Statement Piece.
- Neutral Need Not Be Boring.
One may also ask, can I just paint over old paint?
Priming is best. If you have to do two coats of paint to cover the old color, why not use a good primer or primer/sealer and one coat of a good paint ? Most people will say otherwise, but primer will stick to old paint a lot better than new paint will . Use one coat of primer and one coat of paint .
How long does it take to paint a wall?
Typically it should take the average person roughly 40 minutes to roll out each coat the paint in an average room. TOTAL TIME TO ROLL OUT WALLS : 80 Minutes / 0.185 Minutes Per Square Foot. Pro-Tip: In order to go fast and have the best looking walls as possible, you need to use the right equipment.
