How to Paint a Room – Sherwin-Williams


[music playing] Painting your walls,
trim and ceilings and not sure where to begin? Well, you’ve come
to the right place. Up here. Ceilings first, then walls,
then trim. If your ceiling is part
of your painting project, you’ll want to start here,
along the edges. Using an angled bristle brush, carefully paint a strip along
where the ceiling meets the wall or along your crown molding
if you have that. Hold your brush near
the base of the handle, dip the bristles
about halfway down and then gently tap them. Don’t wipe the bristles. That will take too much
paint off your brush. Paint with enough pressure
to bend the bristles slightly, but don’t push too hard
or the paint may drip. Now, here’s the trick. You want to switch
over to your roller while the paint strip along
the edges is still wet. That will give you
the best results. For higher ceilings, or
just to make things easier, attach your roller
to an extension pole like this. If your ceiling is smooth,
use a shorter nap roller from 1/4 inch to 3/8 of an inch. If you have a textured ceiling, use a thicker roller nap
from 1/2 inch to an inch. And now, onto the walls. Using an angled brush, start by painting
along your ceiling, your floor or baseboards and along your trim
around the windows and doors. Don’t forget to cover
your inside corners too. A 2 or 2.5 inch brush
offers good control, so it’s just right
for detail work, like cutting in around windows
or painting trim. Then, using your roller, come as close
to the edges as possible. Carefully overlap
the areas you trimmed while they’re still wet. Rolling in an N pattern,
that’s a capital N, always work towards the areas
of the wall you’ve just painted, overlapping onto the wet paint. This will give your
walls a uniform look once your paint is dried. For larger spaces, you may want to edge and finish
one side of the room at a time. That leaves only one thing. The trim, also known as molding. Your newly painted wall,
should be left to thoroughly dry before you apply your painters
tape alongside your trim. To prevent paint from
seeping through the tape, try to use longer pieces instead of several
shorter pieces. Make sure
you’re butting the tape right up against the trim. Then press to the wall
in small sections. To ensure the tape sticks
firmly to your wall, carefully press the tape edges
using a clean putty knife. This will make sure you get
a nice, even paint line. A two inch angledd sash brush
is generally best for painting trim. Apply the paint
in one smooth stroke in one direction. Start subsequent
strokes of the brush in a dry area, working towards the
wet painted area. Use a glossy finish
paint on your trim to make sure it really
stands out from your walls. Once your paint is dry to the touch, remove the tape by slowly
peeling it back over itself. So remember,
ceilings, walls, trim. The right order is
always important. Got any more questions? Go to your neighborhood
Sherwin-Williams store, walk in, ask an expert,
in that order.

  1. Good luck if your trying this. I've been painting 18 years. Ceilings and trim first always. Why. Well if you drip onto your walls and you touch up it will show a mark on your wall 2nd to much taping. Taping is an art in itself. You must dust before taping and if your walls aren't cured you could pull paint up and then when touching up it will show on your wall. Sooooo cut in your ceiling from one corner and continue around entire room. You can hit your wall it's ok just brush out any brush marks. Then with a roller and pole roll your ceiling. Always use a thicker nap roller and use a lot of paint so it dries slower as you roll it out. If 2nd coat is needed repeat. Next prep all trim putty holes and dap or caulk where any 2 pieces of trim meet(all gaps) when that's dry paint your trim and yes you can hit the wall just brush out any brush marks. If needed repeat. When trim is dry( 24 hrs best at least 5-6) dust all trim with soft brush and apply tape using your finger to press and then

  2. Putty knife like in video. Then repair any wall damage sand when dry dust off tape and prime your repairs with paint your using but primer is better then start cutting in walls and trim. Cut high off ladder then low on ground. Then roll your walls starting at one corner and continue around room. Apply second coat when dry pull your tape off gently up and towards wall and voila

  3. Also unless painting NEW DRYWALL OR NEW WOOD YOU DO NOT NEED PRIMER. PRIMER IS A SEALER AND IF YOUR WALLS ARE PAINTED THEY ARE SEALED ALREADY. PAINT AND PRIMER IS BS READ THE LABEL IT SAYS TO USE PRIMER IF DRYWALL IS NEW OR WOOD IS NEW AND UNPAINTED SAVE YOUR $$$$ AND TIME. PAINT IS PAINT AND PRIMER IS PRIMER. UNLESS ITS A DARK COLOR AND A PRIMER IS REQUIRED TO HELP IT COVER SO THAT YOUR NOT PUTTING 3-6 COATS TO MAKE IT COVER

  4. No professional painter I know paints things in this order. The only thing he got right with ceilings first. And just like the professionals below me, I agree always paint your trim before the walls.

  5. Dear Viewers, you need to trust this man. He knows what he's doing because he doesn't have a drop of paint on his shirt.
