As always, our first step is to get the room ready for paint. Move any furniture out of the room, or if that is not possible move it away from the feature wall you want to paint. Next, lay a Seriously Good Double Protection Dust Sheet and tape it in position to prevent slips.
Use some Seriously Good UV Tape to protect the ceiling, the skirting boards and any areas of detail, like door frames or light switches. Then repair any holes or cracks in the plaster work. We have a few great guides to help you fill a hole and fix a crack, so be sure to check those out if you need to. Finally, use a Seriously Good Microfibre Cloth and some sugar soap to clean the wall. You don’t need to clean the whole wall, just areas which might have been touched a lot, such as around plug sockets or light switches.
