Painting a room is a great way to transform your home interior, without it costing the earth. But it can be a daunting task and everyone wants to have that professional looking finish. What’s the secret to decorating success? Preparation and practice.
We will guide you through the tricks to a professional finish: How to fill gaps and blemishes to make the surfaces smooth and ready for paint. You will practice using different tools and materials, experiment with different qualities of brushes and finally learn how to apply paint to where you want and not all over yourself.

You will learn how to prepare a room for painting, from cleaning the paintwork to filling small and large holes in the walls and woodwork.
