(BPT) - Whether you like it or not, summer is the perfect time to stop procrastinating and get rolling on those paint projects you've been putting off. No matter how many Pinterest inspiration boards you save or prep tutorials you watch, it's never easy to roll up your sleeves and get to work. Between laboring over colors and second-guessing the entire project to begin with, we all go through four stages. These tips will help you take the pain out of painting and actually get the job done. After all, let's get real. It's just paint.
Stage 1: Swatch stress
You came into the store with a clear game plan. So why are you still in the paint aisle surrounded by paint chips trying to decide between Sutton Place Grey and Old Monterey Grey? Grab a couple samples and put some paint on your wall. Or better yet, use Glidden paint's virtual room painter tool and see what your room will look like before you start to sweat.
Stage 2: Prepping procrastination
Once you have your paint, it's time to tape and cover. This is the boring part. So turn up Pandora's Get Rolling Radio playlist and get started. You will feel like a pro in no time with a few pointers.
Stage 3: On a roll
After stumbling through prep, you finally hit your stride. Nothing can get in the way of your new wall because you and your partner are rolling machines.
Stage 4: Admire a job well done
There's no better reward for a weekend spent painting than seeing how great your room looks. And, crashing on a comfy sofa when the job is done.
Look, painting's hard, but it's just paint. At least with Glidden paint, you get premium paint without the premium price, which makes it that much easier to get started. So pick up your paint and start rolling. The sooner you begin, the sooner you'll get some quality couch time.
