There’s no way: when the walls are very old or stained, the way out is to renew the painting. However, ink and labor weigh in on the budget. Because of this, it is necessary to do price and quality research to purchase good and cheap house paint ( สี ทา บ้าน which is the term in Thai). In addition, if you are going to roll up your sleeves to paint the property without hiring anyone, it is good to understand some concepts. See below:

Paints

Acrylic (easier to clean), PVA (water-soluble and ideal for indoor environments), oil-based (multipurpose and good finish), synthetic enamel (suitable for outdoor areas), and epoxy (ideal for floors).

Rollers

 Used for large areas, the most common ones are low wool (indicated for PVA and acrylic paints), foam (for synthetic enamel, based on oil and varnish), and rubber (for effects and textures).

Brushes

 They are used for small areas to finish the finishing, the most common being black bristles (detail painting), gray bristles (ideal for water-based paints), and white bristles (for applying varnish and enamel paint).

 In addition, it is necessary to buy other materials, such as masking tape, canvas, and sandpaper. Therefore, the idea is to do price research and take advantage of the promotions.
