A fresh coat of paint can look bad if there are smudges on the trim or ceiling or if the paint isn’t spread out correctly. If you think it is a project you are going to get frustrated with I would suggest hiring a painting company.

When you hire a painting company they will also take care of the holes or scratches in the walls and move your furniture back when done.
