Preparation is KEY

A successful paint job starts with properly preparing the surface you're going to paint. That means you must scrape, sand, patch, and fill every hole, crack, dent, and surface imperfection.

This isn't the fun part of painting a room, but it is the most important part. No paint, regardless of its cost, colour, thickness, or manufacturer's claims, will hide a pockmarked or cracked surface.

If the preparation is done correctly then the painting is easier and a good look is ensured.
