Here are some tips for painting the house fence with house fence color (สี รั้ว บ้าน which is the term in Thai) yourself. Following procedures and respecting, steps guarantee a very good result, with the advantage of economy.


Set aside an old piece of clothing, as it will be unusable at the end of the renovation, especially if you have never painted a wall yourself. Move furniture away, store decorative objects and design the furniture, floor, baseboards, doors, and doorframes with cardboard and canvas.


Sand the entire wall. Then,

with a damp cloth, remove all the dust from it. Brooming the fur wall is another option. Make sure, however, that it is not too dirty or greasy. Also, clean the floor as the movement causes dust to rise.

On Tape

One of the great allies of painters is the masking tape. Pass the tape around the area painted (skirting, ceiling wheel, jambs, wall joints), protecting the materials and giving more freedom to work with the roller. This tape is then removed for finishing.

Correcting Imperfections

If the wall is badly treated and has ripples, it will be necessary to do one of the most challenging jobs in painting, which is to get the finish right with spackle or plaster. The ideal material for indoor environments is spackle. Use a flashlight or light bulb to see imperfections. Let it dry for a few hours. After this process, the sanding must be repeated, as well as the cleaning of the walls.


Open the can and mix the sealer well so that the material is uniform. Separate an amount in the application tray and, with the wool roller, apply it on the wall in horizontal movements. It is essential to observe the manufacturer’s instructions and the recommended dilution. If done right, one coat is enough.


Open the paint and mix it well with a mixer or wooden batten. FOLLOW INSTRUCTIONS

Each ink has different specifications. Therefore, read the manufacturer’s instructions for diluting it. Pour the paint into the tray or bucket and dilute it with water following the recommendations on the package. Shake well.


Use a brush (brush) to apply the paint around the area (close to the masking tape). The wider this finish, the better. Without waiting for it to dry, head to the rest of the surface. Before use, it is recommended to moisten the roller with water. Dip the roller in the paint without letting it soak, remove the excess in the tray or bucket and pass it vertically on the wall. Swipe from top to bottom and then back to complete a swath. A tip is to always start from one side to the other. Do the procedure all over the wall and let it dry for at least four hours.


The first coat is never perfect. Sometimes it takes more than two for the wall to look good. So don’t be scared off by the first coat of paint.

Second Coating

Repeat the painting process, first making the outline close to the masking tape with the brush and rolling the second coat with the roller. If the result is still not satisfactory, wait for four hours to dry and apply the third coat.
