Painting Prep

Always patch any nail holes and cracks with good spackle before you start. If you have done a lot of patching, use primer on these spots to prepare them for the smoothest coverage.

First "cut in" the corners and edges with a brush, then finish the rest of the room with a roller.

Try the time-saving "skip" technique: Dab the paint on with a brush or roller in several blobs near each other, then work across them to spread the paint evenly.
