We all have those project/projects that we put on the backburner and tell ourselves we’ll get to them later. “Later” turns into “next week” and “next week” turns into “next month,” and so on. At Ace Handyman Services, we get it. We know time is precious and it’s hard to make time to get a paintbrush in your hand.
That is why Ace Hardware and Ace Handyman Services have teamed and declared April 3rd “Some Day.” Some Day was created because we all have that room we want to paint someday, and Ace can help you move that painting project from a dream to a reality. Here are the details for the promotion
“Paint is the easiest way to put a fresh face on tired walls or make old siding look and feel new again. We also realize paint procrastination is real,” says Kim Lefko, Chief Marketing Officer at Ace Hardware. “A new pop of color or walls that make your friends talk is the perfect way to kickstart spring; fresh paint feels better than your deepest spring cleaning. Rest assured, your locally owned Ace store is here to help, every step of the way.”
Along with picking out the perfect paint color, the biggest hurdle for customers is the prep work. In fact, nearly 37% report the prep work and clean-up are the biggest obstacles. To alleviate some of those obstacles, below are a few important tips, and some links to Ace Hardware to get the most out of your project.
• Scrape any cracked or flaking paint with a paint scraper. For other small imperfections on the wall such as plaster bumps, smooth them away with sandpaper.
• A high-quality primer will help hide small imperfections on walls. Use a good water-based primer on new drywall. Choose an oil-based primer for walls that have heavy stains from water or smoke damage, or if the wall has paneling.
How To Choose A Paint Primer
• Before painting, protect wall trim, baseboards and floor with painter’s tape.
Always remember, if those tips seem too daunting, give Ace Handyman Services a call. We are here for you for all things prep work, clean-up and, of course, helping you with all tasks you want to do… Some Day.
