Time To Paint

Get started painting your bedroom by beginning at the ceiling and working your way downward. Dip your brush half way in to the paint and shake off the excess. Hold the handle and apply light pressure to paint the surface.

In order to use a roller, dip slowly in to the paint filled tray until saturated and remove excess paint over ridges in the tray. Roll using uniform strokes. Start at the ceiling, using a brush. Work the brush in to the corners. Use the roller on the walls, rolling left to right until finished.
