How to paint a wall


Step 1. Stir the paint, using a variable-speed drill and paint-mixing bit. Set the drill on a low speed and keep the head of the bit in the paint until it completely stops turning. Paint separates quickly, so stir it thoroughly from time to time.

 

Step 2. Cut in the edges of a 2 x 4-ft. section of the first wall, using the narrow edge of a paintbrush. Press down just enough to flex the bristles. Use long, slow strokes, and paint from dry areas back into wet paint.

 

Step 3. Cut in any corners in the section, using the wide edge of the paintbrush or use a specialty corner roller.

 

HERE’S HOW

 

Here’s how to avoid having the paint look different from one wall to the next. Paint— especially custom-mixed paint—can vary a tiny bit from one Can to another. If your project is large, mix the cans together in a large pail and stir it thoroughly. This is known as boxing.
