Today we’re going to go over how you paint your walls. First of all, I’ve already prepped the room for painting, and we’ve already painted the ceiling. Now that we’re done with that is time to paint the walls now the ceiling is white, and the walls are going to be blue. We’re going to have to cut a straight line up against the roof. I’m going to show you how doing that makes it look nice.
Let’s go over some of the equipment you’re going to want I recommend the three and a half inch angle latex brush same as we reason on the ceiling. Now you’re going to need to spend 12 or 15 boxes on a brush like this, but it’s worth it doesn’t much better job than a cheap plastic handle brush that you get out of the bargain bin.
Ok, it’s going to give you a lot less streaking. It’s going to hold a lot more paint, and it’s much more stable makes it easier to cut lines. A lot of people think you need a small brush to cut a straight line. It’s not a right big brush, and actually, works better you’re also going to need a cutting pot. Of course, to put this brush, I recommend you roll as always, out of a five-gallon bucket with a roller grid in it and a good style handle roller.
Don’t buy the cheap because it’ll bend. Now, the reason I like rolling out of the five-gallon bucket is that roller pens are just too easy to step on now as far as your roller cover goes for your average room. You’re probably going to want a half inch or a three-eighths inch nap somewhere in there, and then, of course, you’re going to need some step.
Her or I like this little stool that doubles as a tool box. One more thing going to want is a real roller pole to four-foot extendable meter waterfall. It ‘s nice to have now one thing that’s essential before you can start. It is if you’re using a custom color such as this blue. You have a dump all your paint into one bucket and mix it around.

They call that boxing the pain. So we’ve got our painting rodeo. We’ve got all our equipment. Now, we need to cut in the room here. We need to cut this line it up against the ceiling, all right. So, I got my cutting pot here, maybe one-quarter to one-third full. Got my brush and dip the brush and rather than wiping all the paint off on edge.
Just give it a little shake you want to leave a good amount of pain on there. You always want to make sure using enough paint; now some people wonder how best to hold a paintbrush? I think this is the best way to have your thumb on one side. You have your finger right there and three fingers on that side. It gives you a lot of strength, either way; it’s kind of like holding a pencil start.
Over here in the corner, put a little paint on like that and I notice I’m not trying to cut that line in yet up against the ceiling. I’m just getting a little color down below because this will help me to glide smoothly when I I’m cutting that line. Now, here’s how you make that line look straight in this instance. I want to reduce that pain just a hair up onto the ceiling.
If I leave it down on the wall and I’ve got a little watery white line down the wall that’s going to be very visible from out of the middle room. But if I kind of just a hair up onto the ceiling from the middle room, you’re not going to be able to tell. Now, here’s what I’m talking about if you walk over the wall and you look straight up at the ceiling. You can see where the paint waivers a little bit unevenly out onto the roof.

But as soon as you step back out into the room for most people are going to be looking at it it looks straight. Now, here’s the second point that I want to make about cutting in the room. It’s essential that as you go along, you can use a two-step process. You always put the paint on first, then you go back and do one final stroke to smooth everything out. And you always have to do that stroke back into your wet edge that means back into the direction that you’re coming from.
If you always do that, your brush strokes will all blend, and you’re not going to get any marks where you started and went out that way. It’s always going to blend very importantly. Now, I’ve got the room tight end, and it’s time to roll the walls. You can get great results from your run if you just follow the simple two-step process and that is first you lay the paint on you just get the whole wall cover and get a good color paint on there. You don’t worry about being too precise. You just make sure everything gets covered many go back to the beginning, and you do one final roller stroke on the whole wall to smooth it all out.
I call that land it off all right as long as you lay it on and lay it off every time you paint a wall. You look beautiful where you pull it out of their twist around it, so it doesn’t drip. All make sure you apply some good pressure. Get that paint evenly spread around. Notice how when I come out with a wet roller. I don’t start right on top of what I’ve already painted.
I commenced in the middle here, and you’re a real life has spread that fresh paint around a little bit for any from getting a large spot. Then you kind of work, back into the area code, I like the color. Ok, now I’ve got the paint later on the whole army goes back to the beginning and put a nice smooth stroke into the entire wall make sure everything is even there aren’t any roller blinds. Get in nice and tight to the edges. Get up as close as I can to the ceiling without hitting it, and that’s called my layout bump that hot for you are slow in the corner. Just come down like that all over overlap your roller strokes, but maybe thirty to fifty percent.
Nice and close to that Tramp and set that’s beautiful look at all. Now, you know how to cut and roll your walls and make everything look beautiful. Thanks for reading and coming to my blog. I hope the Easy Guide to Painting The Walls useful for you.
