How to Paint a Kitchen : Painting Kitchen Walls with Rollers


Okay, you just watched us cut in the walls.
Our next step in painting the kitchen is to roll on the paint. Let me show you how that’s
set up. We have our roller tray, and our plastic roller tray insert. We have our roller cover,
and our roller, our roller extension pole, our paint, and our brush. You want to put
the roller on the roller cover, and you want to take some tape, and you want to remove
the lint from this roller cover. It was direct from the factory. It’s made out of a synthetic
wool. Some of the hairs tend to stick to the paint. When you first put it on, you want
to just wrap it in the tape like a Barber’s pole, all the way around; make sure it’s securely
stuck, just like a big lint brush; pull it off. You can see, see how much lint is on
that. That would have, most likely got stuck on the wall. So I want to put a good amount
of paint in there, because the roller’s got to absorb a lot of paint when we first get
wet. We catch our drips; close up our can. I like to get it evenly wet, because like
I said, it’s going to be pretty dry and thirsty. It’s going to absorb a lot of paint at first,
so we want to get it evenly filled with paint. You don’t want to just dip it right in. You
want to just dip it, and then you kind of roll it out, using this part of the tray to
roll off the paint, so it’s not too drippy. I’m going to apply the roller pole. This is
the same thing as any broomstick. It has the same type of little grooves, so you could
just use your broom if you don’t have one of these handy. We want to let the leverage
of the pole do most of our work for us. The first step is to get the paint on, and then
we want to go back where we’ve put it on, and just roll it out, rolling the excess off
around again, this part of the tray, and like needing these zigzag configurations to put
the paint on. It goes on pretty heavy. Then we’re going back through the area that we’ve
just mapped out for ourselves. We’re rolling in a now I can pretty much let the whole pole
do the work for me. That’s the key to this; a lot less effort is needed. If you notice,
I’m working in block sections. I like to work block, block, block, block. I do it in large
squares. It’s small, manageable amount of area that I can roll out, very similar to
when we’re brushing. We want to keep a one run at a time method. So, this chair rail
that’s going through the middle of the wall, now we’re going to back brush it. It’s like
I like I tell you, the two parts of painting is one, getting the product onto the surface,
and then next, it’s to brush it out. Got about two more sections to do, block, and then block.
Getting right up to the edge to roll over our cutting strokes so that they’ll dry nice
and uniform and you won’t see any of our brush strokes on the wall. Now, in the same fashion,
you want to kind of spread the paint to the whole extent of our section while the roller
is still really wet, when it first comes out of the tray good to spread it throughout your
whole entire segment, and then roll back, and even out the entire area. Okay, that’s
looking fantastic. Now we’re ready to move on to the next step.
