Painting the corners and the walls are an important part of the room painting process, but if you get paint on the ceiling at the same time you are not doing yourself any favors.
It’s important to be able to paint corners and walls without getting paint on the ceiling at the same time.
The first thing you will want to do is to wash the walls where you will be painting.
You can now apply painter’s tape to the ceiling area so you don’t get any paint on the ceiling.
Use an angled brush to paint the wall is below the ceiling getting no paint on the ceiling.
It might seem obvious, but you will want to remove all the furniture in the room where you will be painting.
Any furniture is in the room is going to end up in the way and lead to the possibility that you will ultimately get paint on the ceiling by mistake.
Remove the furniture in the room so you can prevent that from happening.
Corners can be extremely tricky in painting them, particularly when they are by the ceiling, but if you know what you are doing, they will be no challenge at all.
First of all, you won’t want to use a traditional paint roller — there’s no real way to paint corners by the ceiling with a paint roller without getting paint on the ceiling.
The right paintbrush will be somewhat angled so you can properly paint the corner without getting any paint on the ceiling.
While it is important to remove the furniture from the room, it is sometimes just not possible to remove certain kinds of furniture — it’s possible that it might just be too heavy to be removed, for example.
For furniture that cannot be moved, you will want to cover it up with canvas drop cloth so you can protect the furniture from the paint.
While you are covering the furniture that cannot be moved, also cover the floors and when you paint the corners and walls near the ceiling you will inevitably get some drips of paint onto the ground.
Both the walls by the ceiling and the corners by the ceiling have the same approach to them — you will want to use painter’s tape to protect the ceiling and then use an angled brush to make sure that you delicately paint the corners and walls by the ceiling without even getting a single drop of paint on the ceiling.
By employing both the painter’s tape and the angled brush, you will get beautifully painted corners and walls by the ceiling.
The majority of the wall can now be painted with a traditional paint roller now that you have painted the corners and walls near the ceiling.
Since the corners and walls are the trickiest part of the room to be painted and you have already painted them, all that you have left is the bulk of the wall which isn’t near the ceiling and therefore can be painted with a paint roller.
