How to roll paint on your walls:

  • First, cut in your edges.
  • Condition your roller by dipping it in the paint and rolling it back and forth approximately 20 times on the ridged part of the tray until it is saturated.
  • Begin rolling at a corner near the ceiling and work down the wall in roughly three-foot square sections. Spread the paint in a zigzag "W" pattern; then, without lifting the roller from the surface, fill in the zigzag pattern with even, parallel strokes.
  • Work from the ceiling down to the baseboards. Do an entire wall or area at a time.
