What you need:

– The masking

– A universal undercoat pot

– A paint can

– A large paint tray

– A small paint roller

– A brush

– A paint roller

– A pole

– A pair of gloves

– A pair of protective goggles

DIY lesson

– Equip yourself goggles and plastic gloves.

– After protecting the floor with a plastic tarp and baseboards with masking tape, remove dust and leach if necessary to repaint the surface. Rinse with clean water.

– Pour the primer paint in the bucket. Dip only 1/3 of your brush to prevent it from dropping. Paint all angles (wall-ceiling, wall baseboard, room corners) to brush. Smooth paint small roll. With the pole, paint the whole up and down the wall.

– Let dry 12 hours. Do not rush, it is important to respect the drying time.

– Pour your paint into the paint tray or use directly in the original pot.

– Paint the corners again with the brush then smooth the small roller.

– Dip your roller in tray and squeeze it on spin grooves provided for this purpose. This will prevent sagging and your overloaded roller leaves thicknesses on the surface.

– Wait for the complete drying of the first layer before passing the finish coat.

– When the latter is dry, remove quickly the masking.
