Minwax has the perfect wood stain color for every project. Use our stain color guide to pick the right stain color for your wood projects.
Preparation is as important as the paint job itself. Be certain to be prepared with needed painting supplies and accessories. Be sure to take the time to repair small nail holes in your walls and fill in cracks and crevices around doors and windows. You can smooth out rough spots and create clean edges by applying masking tape around doors, windows, and where the walls meet the floor and ceiling.
Once you have selected your paint color and finish, there are a few standard painting tools to have on hand. You'll need enough paint trays and brushes per painter and a few extra if you're applying more than one color. Speed up paint application with appropriately heighted step ladders to help you access spots that are out of arms reach.
Once you are finished, remember to clean your painting equipment using soap and water. With the right care, these tools can be used more than once, saving you time and money.
