A couple of questions. I am painting the inside of my house approximately 1800sqft. Is this a job i can do my self or should i hire someone?

If is do it what should i be prepared for. Fist let me say i am not much of a handy person so some questions may seems dumb. I know i need to tape. I was told i might have to fill in holes. Well the only real holes are from pictures, small nail holes,

do i need to do that? If so what product do you suggest? Any helpful hints would be appreciated. I have the colours already chosen


happy Holidays

Hi Caroline, it all comes down to how "professional" you want your painting project to look upon completion. I recommend getting painters puddy and filling in all the holes. You will surely want to utilize tape unless you have a steady hand to cut in around the trim other areas of concern.
Or you can hire someone. It all just depends on if you have the time (it will take a lot of time to paint 1800 sq ft), patience and the quality of the finished product that you are looking for.
Good luck
