I would like to start painting walls but not sure what paint accessories should I be looking? Any advise would be appreciated
Also I have very dark brown wall and I like to paint to light grey so do I need to take any additional steps before I paint?
One more thing looking to fill broken gyprock and very fine cracks in the wall before I paid so what should I buy?
Thanks in advance
For the dark brown wall, you'll likely need a grey tinted undercoat. If you let our helpful team in-store know the colour you want to paint over, they'll provide a suitably tinted undercoat. The very fine cracks should only take a fine sanding to smooth out, and the under-coat should take care of them.
You should find these step-by-step guides useful:
Please let me know if you have further questions after viewing the guides, and I would be more than happy to assist.
I've taken another look at your question and realised you would like some specifics on what equipment is needed @kalradeepak.
Most painting jobs around the home will require the following:
May I add that using the cheap drop sheets is fine, but I would recommend putting an old sheet or similar under the plastic drop sheet because if you get even a tiny hole in it, any paint that gets through will then get spread around the floor being sandwiched between floor and plastic sheeting. An old sheet will soak up small leaks and also stop the plastic sheet sliding around. (If you don't have one, try your local op shop. They usually have some awful curtains or sheets that no one would want to use as such.)
Great tip, @TedBear! I've actually done that before and couldn't figure out where the paint was coming from.
Many thanks for sharing.
