Avoid storing paint in places that experience extreme high or low temperatures. If you need to dispose of leftover primer or paint, contact your local township or county for proper disposal guidelines.
Painting can really add up so fast and be really expensive – but it’s interesting just how much money you were able to save. Plus, you learned so much and got a lot of experience that it’s probably worth it in the end. Jo February 25, 2015 .
Painting interior walls averages $1.50 to $3.50 per square foot. Standard baseboards cost $1.00 to $1.50 per linear foot. Square footage is calculated by multiplying length in feet by height in feet (remember there are four walls in a room), then subtracting window and door space. Doors and window frames average about $60each. Many projects will require a primer and some will require a primer and two coats of paint. One gallon of paint covers about 400 square feet. Paint and labor are not the only costs. Masking tape, brushes and other items add some cost. In some areas there may be permit or inspection fees.
Painting the interior of your home for a 2000 square foot home costs an average of $2115, with most contractors charging between $1 and $3 per square foot.

Sherwin Williams has stores all across the nation and offers various basic and self-priming paints, ranging in cost from $25 to $93 per gallon. The vast majority of their painting products are easy to brush and roll onto walls and ceilings, making them a convenient and trustworthy choice for interior painting projects. Sherwin Williams paint is a bit thinner, so it will dry much quicker. However, that means you may need to apply multiple coats.
One of the benefits of painting an entire home interior at once is the ability to create a “color story” or plan for the way that color will flow from room to room. By creating a color story, you can figure out how to best complement each space with the color of the walls. Even if you plan on painting your home in various shades of white or off-white, there is still a fair amount of planning that should go into the project to ensure that you get the results you want.
Tricorn Black (SW 6258) by Sherwin Williams is another popular color, traditionally used for doors and shutters as an exterior accent. These days, black exteriors are trending and Tricorn Black is a modern choice for a house body or siding color. Indeed, painting your house black can be an option for more contemporary home styles.
Many times when purchasing a new home, most of the color throughout the house is a boring or stark white. As you start to add your own personal aesthetic to your home, you may start noticing that the handrailing on the stairs could also use a little pick-me-up....
Whoa! You must be a fan speaking of lessons learned..:) I appreciate your insight and if nothing else well, we played in the dirt and here we are now…Best..:)-annie Michelle March 01, 2015
You can use painters tape wrapped backward around your hand to do this. Press your taped hand onto the roller, and it will work in a similar manner as a lint roller.
