Paint Roller Tips and Techniques - Home 101

Rollers are great for covering large area, such as large walls. Adding an accent wall to any room is a great way to add color and style. To begin you will need paint, paint roller, a paint tray, angled brush and painters tape. Tape off the ceiling, molding and corners of the wall (we are painting an accent wall in this video). Pour the paint into the painting tray. Next, using the angled brush, paint the edges of the wall about 2.5" from the tape. Next, using the paint roller, wet the nap on the roller with a damp cloth so that the paint will absorb easier. Start in a "W" pattern, and overlap the area a couple of times while the paint is still wet. Let the paint dry about 2-4 hours and you are done!
