The first thing to do is to remove everything from the walls that are to be painted. This includes grills, electrical plates or anything else that might be on them. This makes painting easier and means there will be no need to scrape paint off these items as well as no need to tape them off. Cleaning the walls is the next step to be completed. If the walls are dirty then any bumps, dirt or grease on the wall will cause the paint not to adhere as well as possibly peel and crack.

Once the walls are clean, then prime with the home hardware primer just like with any primer. Tinting the primer to match the final color of the walls can help with one coat applications of the final pain color. Make sure to do one wall at a time. Do not try to trim in the entire room before painting the walls. This will cause brush and lap marks in the paint.
