How to Paint Your Ceiling

If you are planning on painting your bedrooms or living rooms. Painting the ceiling should always be the first task if you are decorating a whole room, doing the ceiling first makes the subsequent tasks easier.First remove curtains, fixtures and any light furniture, place all heavy furnishings in the middle of the room and cover with dustsheets. Remove any loose floor coverings and use dustsheets to protect any other floor covering from paint splashes and dust. Wash down the wall with sugarsoap or a suitable detergent to remove all dust and debris. Inspect the ceiling for cracks, holes and any loose plaster.
For small cracks use a suitable fine filler, for larger cracks and holes use a stronger more suitable filler (see manufacturer's instructions).

When filling try and leave a nice smooth finish, it is better to leave the filled area slightly proud of the surrounding area and then sand down with a fine sandpaper until flush. Hope this helps..
