Preparing the Surface

1. Turn off power to switches and outlets.  Remove switch plates and outlet coverings. 
    Cover openings with masking tape.

2. Put down drop cloths.  If there is previous  wallpaper, remove carefully. See  “Removing
    Wallpaper” for further  instructions.

3. Wash walls to remove grease and dirt.  If surface is glossy, sand the walls and then wash. 
    Walls should be clean and smooth, free of mildew, grease and  stains.

4. Patch any cracks and holes with spackle and sand smooth.

5. Prime walls.
