We all know how to paint, we just don't want to deal with the hassle of prep and clean up. But do you really want to pay someone to do it? Instead of taking on a whole room, start with one accent wall. It will take no time at all. I prefer not use the blue painters tape because it take so long to trim out the ceiling and base boards, and paint seems to invariably bleed through anyway. A steady hand will go a long way for trimming. Note: in this paint job the door frame and base board were painted the same color as the wall for an easier paint job and a modern, uniform look.
