How I Paint My Walls the Easy Way

Painting your walls is pretty basic, but let me show you how I paint my walls in just a knick of time. All you need is a few supplies and you’ll be on your way!

I know, I know, I know. I know exactly what you’re thinking. How hard can it be to paint your walls?

You’re right. It’s not hard–at all. BUT, having the right tools and using the correct paint is always a plus.

I’m not sure if you know this, but I just so happen to be a paint-aholic. I have a problem. Maybe even a serious one, but I won’t admit how bad it really is. Here’s just a little taste of what kind of a person I really am… Prepare yourselves. This might be scary for some.

Picture this: You’re walking down the various aisles in your favorite home improvement store one day enjoying the marvelous splendor of home decor items, gardening tools, and laminate flooring samples when all of sudden (dum, dum, dum) you see a female in the paint section with a crazed look in her eyes. She’s grabbing sample books in every shade possible, skipping around the counter, and rambling off exciting ideas of how she’s going to revamp her kitchen for the third this year.

Ok. So, I may have exaggerated a little bit.

Just a tad, but this is definitely how I feel when I’m in the paint aisle. Ridiculously excited. Every. Single. Time.
