Book Recommendation


I'm thinking of painting my first house myself and want to do it like a pro. Will need to caulk gaps in trim and paint great lines. Can anyone recommend a book? I'm thinking of this...

Nothing replaces getting a brush wet. Your skill and speed will increase with time.

Thank you but I don't know anything about painting. I'll need a book for a direction.

Usually the "This Old House" series of books has some pretty solid info. You can check your local library or go to a Lowes or HD store......they have a nice selection of home improvement books near the front of the store.

I learned to make my own screen printing signs by watching videos on You Tube. I havent looked but I bet there is a ton of How To stuff about basic painting.

whatever you do, try to enjoy the process....painting can be pretty zen like if you want it to be \o/
