How to paint a wall (Page 2)


Step 4. Load the roller with paint. With the loaded roller, make a diagonal sweep about 4 ft. long on the wall. Roll upward on the first stroke to avoid spilling paint. Roll slowly to avoid splattering.

 

Step 5. Draw the roller straight down from the top of the diagonal sweep. Shift the roller to the beginning of the diagonal stroke and roll upward to complete the unloading of the roller.

 

Step 6. Roll back and forth across the section to smooth the area. Lightly draw the roller down the section from top to bottom. Lift the roller and start again at the top after each stroke. Finally slide the roller cover slightly off of the roller frame and roll the cut-in areas to minimize brush marks.

 

Step 7. Cut in and roll the section directly under the first one. Continue with adjacent areas, cutting in and rolling the top sections before the bottom sections. Roll all finish strokes toward the floor.
