How to Paint a Room is a nuts and bolts guide for beginners to the actual, physical work and process of painting a room. It focuses on what to do, in what order, and how to do it in the most efficient way possible. The author has thirty years of experience painting interiors and shares what he's learned over the course of painting hundreds of rooms.
The book focuses on the most common situation: Re-painting a “normal” room. That is, a room that has been painted before, can be reached with a step ladder and doesn’t involve, say, removing wallpaper or repairing large sections of old, crumbling plaster. This is the type of room that the average homeowner or apartment dweller without any experience can reasonably tackle.
This book is not about picking colors or faux painting techniques. Instead, it provides solid, useful information on:
Getting the room ready to paint
Knowing what tools you’ll need
Your paint, primer, and finishes options
Preparing the walls, ceiling and trim
Painting the walls, ceiling, and trim
You may have noticed at this point that I’m not claiming that you will “paint like a pro!” The reason for that is simple: you’re not going to read this book and paint like a pro. Not. Going. To. Happen.
Like any trade or occupation, experience and repetition can only be learned and internalized over time. You can read a book on playing the guitar – and you can learn a lot – but you’re not going to play like Eric Clapton when you’re done reading.
But in the same way that Mr. Clapton could send a rookie on his way with a solid foundation, good habits, and some insider tricks, How to Paint a Room can do the same for you. I’m confident that if you read this book and watch the companion videos, your painting project will go better and faster, and you’ll be happy with the results.

For extra help, all readers get access to a set of videos designed to help them get the most out of the book.
These are short videos shot at real jobs done by the author, not slickly produced on a set. Covering basic topics such as cutting in the walls and ceilings, opening and pouring paint, mixing patching compound, caulking, sanding patches, rolling walls, cleaning your brushes and many more, the videos give you a visual representation of what is detailed in the book. The videos compliment the book and will boost your ability to paint with confidence and end up with a gorgeous room.
