New drywall painting

Step Surface Preparation:
There should not be very much preparation except checking to make sure the wall have been sanded and for dusting off the walls.

Step Priming:
This is an easy stage. I prefer to have the primer tinted close to the finish color. This makes it easier when applying the finish coats. You get better coverage from the finish paint.
First mix up the primer. Pour as much paint as the paint tray will hold.
Place the paint tray within 1 foot of the wall that you will be working on.
Start in a corner and work your way around the room. >Start by loading your roller.
Rolling into the paint several times until the paint roller is completely saturated.
Placing the roller half way up the wall and move upward.
Close to the ceiling then down to near the floor. Keeping on the original stroke each time.
After all the rolling is completed then you can stared to brush in the remaining areas.

Step Surface Preparation:
Now check to find any nail holes, nicks or cuts that might have been overlooked earlier.
Use drywall compound to fill if necessary then sand complete surfaces. Dust off the surfaces and
proceed to he next step.
 

Step Applying First Coat of Paint:
Take a brush and cut in. As you finish brushing one surface wall at a roll immediately. Move to the surface wall and repeat procedure until all surfaces are completed. Proceed to he next step.

Step Surface Preparation:
Now check to find any imperfections that might have been overlooked earlier. Use drywall compound. Fill if necessary then lightly sand completed surfaces. Dust off the surfaces and proceed to he next step.

Step Applying Second Coat of Paint:
The final coat of paint. Take a brush and cut in. As you finish brushing one surface wall at a time roll immediately. Move to the next surface wall and repeat procedure until all surfaces are completed. Proceed to he next room or clean up.

 

 

 

Painting tips & tricks of the day


 

Rolling. Dip your roller in the paint tray and then roll it back and forth on the ridged part of the tray. This squeezes out excess paint and evenly spreads the paint all the way around the roller.

 
 

Paint a room! The order in which to paint a room is essentially top to bottom. That means start with the ceiling, then do the walls and finally paint all the woodwork. To paint a ceiling, begin by painting the edge of the ceiling along the walls with a brush. Paint out about 2" to 3" onto the ceiling. This will provide an area to overlap with the roller.
