I will list them in the video description with the link for each product. I'm using an 18 inch roller instead of the standard nine inch and I'll talk more about why later in the video, a 3/8 inch nap roller I'm using Sherwin Williams Pro mark 200 is a medium grade paint But if your walls are going from a dark to a light color, you may want to get a paint with a primer additive, or prime the walls before painting. Giving them a good brush is a must. I am using a 3 inch angled Purdy brand brush. Now a quality brush makes a world of difference and if you take care of it, it will last a long time.
A small roller for spaces where the big roller won. don't fit an empty paint cup or paint can for cutting on a sanding block a round wall sander with fine sandpaper a duster to clean the walls and painter's tape I start by cleaning the walls will have at least four feet of space between the wall and any furniture, remove all nails, even if you are going to reuse them, remove all cover plates from outlets and switches, remove all plastic covers from thermostats and doorbells, they are much easier to remove and try to paint around them, fill in any holes there are. i will not be reusing with the hole filler use the handle of your putty knife to make a small dent around the hole and remove any excess filler the filler i am using dries in less than thirty minutes and does not require sanding but we will sand the walls first before painting them a five and a painters tool to scrape off any of the larger blemishes you can see, like a paint drip from the previous paint job things that won't sand when we light sand the wall before painting use a cloth mitt or contractor paper to cover the area you're painting, sanding the wall removes minor blemishes and helps the new paint adhere to the round wall. fixing the dust on the walls I am using a Swiffer duster but I prefer to use a larger duster the one I use is made by Bona load the paint onto the brush by tapping it against the bottom of the paint container you are using when using the brush you want it to paint comes out of the center of the brush and not the edges wipe excess paint from all four sides of the outside of the brush if you have had trouble cutting in the past it may be because you have not loaded the brush correctly it is easier doing this with a paint can filled with about an inch of paint compared to the red paint holder i am also using but the red container is much easier to hold and has a magnet for the brush so i recommend trying this to see which one you like, both are less than five bucks, can be found almost anywhere paint is sold in the first coat, leave about 1/8 in. gap ada this saves a lot of time and gives you much better results when you do the second coat the paint glides easily through the first coat you will definitely notice how much easier it is to get a straight line when you only have to think about a small gap compared to trying to make a perfect line on the first layer and then again on the second, this is one of those things that may not make much sense when you hear it, but I promise you'll understand after trying it while you're on the ladder cutting the ceilings bring the corners you find halfway when you are done with the ladder, lower the coins down to the baseboard then follow the same path around the
roomas you did when you were cutting the ceiling around the doors and outlet windows as you go by cutting along the cut baseboard with your painting arm. closer to the wall so your non-painting arm can hold it without being in your way if you are repainting the trim, place the paint lightly on the trim and use your paint to cut the straight line if you are not painting the trim leave the same eight inch gap as we did when we were cutting the ceiling use painter's tape when you have difficult areas like this little space around the store use an old brush or a cheap one to get the paint on the wall never use your good brush the areas it won't fit easily it will ruin it remove any lint from the roller but good ones like this are usually ready to go out of the package on the first coat it will roll about two full roller widths per load of paint and about thr ee widths for paint load on second coat now if you haven't used an 18 inch roller before you got a gift well its twice as big as a ro standard roller, somehow paints three times
faster, it also eliminates a lot of the problems I've had with nine inch rollers, the eighteen inch roller allows even pressure on both sides while the nine inch roller allows the Users favor one side which causes roller marks and bumps, the standard nine inch roller also has a hollow core that you can fill with paint and the method of removing and replacing covers is much easier to use with the 18 inches all you need to do is paint a ceiling with a nine inch roller and then again with an 18 inch roller and you will never look back the difference is huge after you load the roller start the next row within a few inches from where you last stopped, back up one roller width to fill it up, and then move forward until you maintain even pressure the entire time when you feel the paint smearing. a is running out don't increase t he pushes to try and get more paint, instead add more paint to the roller, your drop cloth will get paint on it, no matter how careful you are, keep the paint off the floor by keeping the same side up throughout the job, clean the brush before it fills up to the metal ferrule and before it starts to dry on the brush, you will need to do this a few times during the job, but it only takes a minute or two and is a lot easier to paint with a clean brush, do not spray water on the brush from the bottom, this will damage the bristles, rinse patiently until the water is clear, use a wire brush to remove dried paint from the outer bristles, rotate brush to remove excess water, then reshape the bristles and store on deck. wine if you continue to paint you can use the brush while it is still wet when the paint is completely dry you are ready for the second coat for the second coat repeat the same process as before only now bring the paint to the end edge between coa wrap the roller well wet and saran wrap, it can last several days or even weeks, really if this video helps you don't forget to hit the like button and subscribe to my channel for other DIY videos for your home and thanks for watching
