Updating your home can be as simple as applying a fresh coat of paint. Ace Hardware can help you find the right painting supplies to help you transform the "before" into an "after" you’re sure to enjoy.
Since preparation is just as important as the paint job itself, set yourself up with some must-have painting accessories. Take a few moments to repair small holes in the walls and fill in cracks and crevices around doors and windows. Then, smooth down the rough spots and create clean edges by applying masking tape around windows, doors and where the walls meet the ceiling and floor.
When you've chosen your paint color and finish, there are a few standard painting tools to have on hand. You'll need enough paint trays and brushes per painter and a few extra if you're applying more than one color. Many tools will help speed up paint application including step ladders to help you access sports that are out of arms reach.
