If don’t want to spend your weekend painting walls and being in a room filled with a headache-inducing smell, consider hiring a professional painter. Not sure how to get started? It is as simple as asking the employees at the paint shop you have probably already visited about who they would recommend. Take down names and numbers, but be sure not to just take the employees' word for it. When you call up the painter, be sure to obtain and then check references, as well as view any samples of their previous work.
