Believe it or not the hard part is already done. The pre-paint preparation is usually very tedious. But before you start painting, check the room one more time. Are the drop cloths in place? Do the wall patches look good? Open the window slightly for ventilation but not too much for dust to blow in. Stir the paint thoroughly. One can at a time is OK now that you have already batched all of your paint. Run your roller cover over the tape on the door one more time. Place a pan liner in the tray and pour in some paint.
After your paint project is complete, wait 24 hours before replacing wall hangings, plug and switch plates, heat registers and smoke detectors. The paint is still soft and you would hate to ruin a beautiful job.
