4. Time To Paint

Our painting advice is to begin at the ceiling and work your way downward so that you can catch any drips.

Start at the ceiling, using a brush. Work the brush in to the corners. Use the roller on the walls, rolling left to right until finished.

  • Dip your brush half way in to the paint and shake off the excess. Hold the handle and apply light pressure to paint the surface.

  • When using a roller, dip slowly in to the paint-filled tray until the roller is saturated. Remove excess paint over ridges in the tray. Roll using uniform strokes.
