How To Repaint A Wall

As with all DIY painting projects, you’ll need to set aside time to prepare the wall before you learn how to repaint a wall.

Step 1: Remove any paint chips or old paint that’s bubbled using a scraper and sandpaper.

Step 2: Repair any holes with putty. After it’s dried, sand off and wipe clean with a damp sponge before drying with a dry clean sponge.

Step 3: Gently sand over any surfaces you’ve repaired.

Step 4: Apply primer and allow to dry.

Step 5: Apply two coats of paint.

How To Repaint A Wall With Different Colour

To repaint a wall in a different colour, it’s essential to take the time to prepare the surface. Once the surface is dry and clean, it’s a good idea to use Haymes Ultra-Premium Prep Coat range if the colour change is significant, such as changing from a white to a dark blue. This range of products ensures you’ll only need to use two coats of paint to cover the previous colour.

How To Repaint A Wall The Same Colour

To know how to repaint interior walls with a similar colour of paint, you’ll still need to prepare the surface. Once the surface is clean and dry, apply high-quality primer from the Haymes Ultra-Premium Prep Coat range with a paintbrush and roller. Our preparation products have been developed to mask any imperfections and to provide a smooth and consistent base for coloured paint so you may only need to apply one coat.
