Why it happens: Because inexperienced painters usually try to take shortcuts. Uneven transitions, paint on light switches, thinly veiled cracks, dents, and bumps. All are marks of a paint job that lacked proper preparation and cleanup.
How the pros do it: They spend more time prepping than they do actually painting:
- Repairing wall surfaces
- Removing outlet covers
- Covering light fixtures with plastic wrap
- Use masking tape to cover hardware
- Using painter’s tape along the ceiling and molding
To get clean lines around the ceiling and molding, remove painter’s tape before water-based paint has dried completely, then go back and touch-up any smudges.
