How to fix mistakes when painting
No matter how experienced a DIY painter you are, occasional mistakes are inevitable. Dealing with a botched paint job is never fun - but the one thing we’ve learned is that in the main - mistakes you make when painting are mostly fixable.
Paint bubbles on your fresh paint job
Paint bubbles and blisters usually occur as a result of a moisture or temperature issue within your home. Find out the root cause before repainting. Once that’s all dealt with, get rid of any existing bubbles by scraping off the paint in affected sections and then sand smooth. Re-prime and repaint. All smooth.
Mistake: Paint marks on your trim or skirting board.
The Fix: Accidentally skimmed the trim or skirting board with your paintbrush? It happens. Sand any dried up paint patches off, remove the dust and touch up the area in the same colour as the trim/skirting.
