If you expect to use more
than one container of paint, open them all and mix
them together for a uniform color. You do not need to thin
a paint for use on a floor One exception is if you use a
sprayer that requires thinned paint.
Using a nylon brush,
such as a 2½ sash brush, cut in the sides and corners with
primer This creates a sharp, clean edge. Start this way
for the top coat as well.
using a roller pad
with the nap length recommended by the manufacturer, apply
a primer coat to the surface. Start at the corner farthest
away from the door, and back up as you work. Allow the
primer to dry for at least 8 hours.
With a clean roller pad,
apply the first top coat. Make the top coat even but not
too thick, then let it dry for 24 hours. if you choose to
add another top coat, work the roller in another direction
to cover any thin spots. Let the final coat dry another
day before you walk on it.
