Planning is the most important part of taking on a huge painting project, and many people fail to achieve their goal because they don’t have a proper plan. Therefore, even if you are painting your house, make a plan and write down everything from where to start and what to use. Make a list of tools you will require to paint and check the dimensions of your house and paint required.

Also, note damage and flaking paint area and finally when you will start painting you won’t miss a single thing.

2. Begin To Paint The Wall- 

The first thing you have to do when you start the painting work is to scrape out the old paint. And to do the scrapping work, you will need a lot of dust sheets. Scrapping in itself is very tough and requires lots of stamina. Dress up in old clothes and cover all parts of the body to protect yourself from dust.

For painting, the outdoor walls use damp-proof or waterproof paints.

3. Gather Painting Material- 

The sort of things you will need for outdoor painting are dust sheets, brushes, roller, paint, paint thinner, sweeping brush, gloves, old clothes, putty, and fillers, etc. Not just that, you must also gather a ladder to reach the upper wall. It is advised that you don’t spend money on buying cheap brushes as they shed their bristles and ruin your painting job.

4. Use Spray Paint Instead Of Brush- 

If you haven’t done spray painting, then you should try it for once. As it is easier to spray than painting using a brush. One thing to consider is to be careful since when you spray, it can go out of the area and so mask up the area that you don’t wish to get painted. The best thing about spray paints is that they can create a fine mist which means you can cover lots of areas.

5. Preparing The Wall For Painting- 

One day before painting, you can prepare the wall by checking any cracks and filling it, removing dirt and grime. Sand the wall and make the wall smooth and even for painting.

Therefore, these are outdoor painting tips for you. And it will surely help you to achieve the best finishes and complete the painting job without much hassle. If you are worried about paint splashing on the floor, then you can cover the floor, and it will be easier to clean the mess at last.
