Pasos para pintar sobre paredes oscuras con un color claro

DIY Blogger Diane Henkler of tells Glidden® about how to transition from a dark-colored wall to a lighter one.

Q: What is the best way to paint over dark-colored walls with a lighter paint color?

A: Follow these four simple steps to make a wall paint color transformation.

Durante los últimos meses, he estado pintando sobre paredes oscuras en mi hogar. Me gustaba mucho este color verde oscuro, pero después de 8 años, quería ver un cambio. Elegí un color más claro y brillante. I knew that because I was going to be painting over it with a much lighter paint, I would have to take an extra step in the painting process to make sure that when I rolled the new color on the wall, it would not change color due to the original, dark green base paint color.

Step 1: Before painting, fill holes with filler, then sand smooth.


Step 2: When painting over dark walls with light paint colors, use a white primer. Using a primer will help to ensure that your color comes out true when dry, with no dark base color muting a light one or a light base color making it impossible to get bold color coverage. Using primer also lessens the need for additional coats of paint to get complete coverage.


Step 3: When rolling the paint on the wall, roll in large, wide “M” or “W” shapes. Cuando vuelva a cargar el rodillo, asegúrese de hacerlo en la parte inclinada de la bandeja de pintura para eliminar el sobrante de pintura. Esto ayudará a evitar las marcas del rodillo en el acabado de la pintura. Deje secar.


Step 4: Add a second coat to areas in which you can still see any of the previous color through the primer. Deje secar.

Now the walls were ready to paint them with a new, fresh paint color choice. Here is the "Before" and "After" for my project. You can see how following the steps I outlined, gave me the result I wanted. 



Don't let a dark-colored wall keep you from going lighter. Follow these steps to make your own color transformation!
