These DIY painting tips will help you roll your walls quickly and smoothly—without leaving roller marks. We’ll show you the tricks and techniques that painting pros use to get a perfectly painted room. All you need are some basic tools to paint fast, get great results and make clean up a breeze. Painting is one of the least expensive ways to make over a room, so grab a roller and let’s get to work.
Clean the walls.
Tape the trim.
Pour primer into a tray.
Roll the primer onto the wall. Tip: Follow the manufacturer’s drying instructions, which you’ll find on the can, to make sure the primer is completely dry before applying paint.
Paint the trim.
Roll on paint in a “w” shape.
Remove the painter’s tape.
But these are just the basics; let’s move on to creative stuff!
The first part is a pattern roller, which is a 6-inch wide rubber roller having a raised pattern embossed on its surface. The second part is an applicator which consists of a frame, a handle, and a special foam feeder roller.
To use it, you simply roll the feeder roller into some paint (any paint, no special glazes needed), snap on a pattern roller and you’re ready to roll!
