If you have water stains on your ceiling or your walls or you have crayon marks, there are primers for that. You have to clean all the water stains, ink stains, or whatever kind of stains you have on the walls. You have to fix them before you even start to paint. You have to prep the area that you are going to do, so you can have consistency. You do not want a blotchy-looking wall because you did not prep it first. Good painters will always prep before, along the base, and fix cracks and stains. They will cover up everything with plastic, and keep the room as dust-free as possible. It is just a precautionary measure to take so the end result will be to your satisfaction.


If you are just going to do walls, just put your furniture over to the center and buy the runners. The four by nine runners are good. You have to know what you are going to use for the caulking. You have to caulk areas that need it. Make sure your work doesn't look like a patch. The idea is to make it look like a brand new wall, and that is all done in the preparation. So there again, if you are a good do-it-yourselfer or you want to take the time and do right, you can probably do it. If you do not have that kind of time, but you have the money, spend the money and get a professional.
