No building codes apply to interior decoration; if you do something dumb, you don't risk life and property as you would if you were, say, tackling a rewiring job; and because labor typically accounts for 80 to 85 percent of the price of a paint job, you'll save a ton by doing the work yourself.
“A lot of people like to prime the entire room,” Marchesi says. “I never thought it was necessary, especially with paint now-a-days in which you find primer in it already.
