Default Hey everybody!

I suppose this is the first place I should stop in order to introduce myself. My name's Nate and I thought it would be good to be around some experienced painters to talk shop with. The only way to do that for me is in the digital form. I grew up painting with my father (who was just a DIY'er) and learned a lot from him. Last year I worked with a professional and am now contemplating whether or not I can do this on my own. Hopefully, there are a few encouraging and knowledgeable tradesmen here who can help a fledgling businessman such as myself! Take care and I hope to talk with many of you soon!

G'day Nate

Welcome to PT

if possible work for a few painters and get some more experience under your belt

Also check out the threads on PT : )

There is one going around with a video of how to paint ceilings without dipping your roller : )
That was a good one

Then there is the secret way how to grain a door ?

We have it all : ) so get some work with some pro's and then spend your spare time around here that should help

. Even when you decide to become a father we can work out the best months to try : )

Paint Talk has it all

Ben - you left out cooking pics, recipes, and how to set a table for six when on the job.
