2-in-1 paints are paint and primer in one. They save you time and provide great results. Our wizard assumes you’ll be using a 2-in-1 paint.
For best results we recommend two coats of paint. If you’re changing from a darker color to a lighter color or painting a bold, strong color, you may need more than two coats.
The sheen of the paint refers to the gloss level, i.e. how shiny the paint will look when it’s dry. The higher the gloss level, the shinier the appearance and the more scrubbable the finish.
A 2 1/2-inch nylon paintbrush is great for areas you can't paint with a roller, such as small spaces and trim.
Measure the length and width of your ceiling by measuring the length and width of your room.
Good brushes and rollers save you time, give you great results, and last through multiple projects. Buy good quality brushes and rollers.
Paint roller covers come in different “naps.” The length of the nap refers to the length of the fibers. Shorter naps are best for smooth surfaces. Longer naps are better for rough surfaces.
(This amount should provide enough for two coats of paint.)
