If you do decide to make it a full-time business, the sky’s the limit. The house flipper/contractor that I worked for billed clients $35 per hour for painting, and paid his best painters perhaps half of that, so there is room for some profit there. Consider the case of Matt Shoup, who started with $100 and went door-to-door, asking neighbors if they needed some painting done, then built a painting business that earns $2.5 million per year!
I found a great YouTube video channel on how to paint a house. It covered interior and exterior painting, and the videos were easy to follow. I watched a few other painters’ videos as well, because even the professionals do not all paint in the same way. .
Awesome post! I just wanted to add a couple tips about cleaning brushes that might be helpful. If you’re painting and are coming back for second coats later the same day, you can put your brush in a ziplock bag to keep it from drying out while you’re taking a break. When cleaning your brushes, use Murphy Oil Soap, it really helps to get the paint off and is eco friendly. You can even soak brushes in it and clean them later on if you’re a giant procrastinator like I am 🙂 I love following your progress with this house and am so stoked to see the finished product! Cheers and have a great day! Alexandra February 25, 2015 Jill @ Champagne for Everyday February 25, 2015

Also known as: glossy paint, glossy paint finish, gloss finish, gloss paints, semi-gloss, high gloss paints, demi-gloss finish Lacquer is a fast-drying, clear or lightly-pigmented varnish. It dries as the solvents evaporate and often requires a curing process in order to develop a hard coating. Lacquer is most commonly used on wood and furniture.
But you really can’t afford to contract the wrong company. Not doing your homework may leave you under the assumption that you have hired a painting contractor when in reality you have just hired a painter. When you hire just a painter, you as the homeowner have taken all responsibilities of a contractor.

Wow! I had no idea painting was so expensive! I guess I just haven’t painted since I was young, and of course I was unaware of cost at 12, ha!
