Wall Painting Techniques:

1.) Always sand the walls using a pole sander

2.) Don’t worry about doing any other prep work until you get a first coat or primary coat of paint on the walls. Go ahead and cut in and roll out a first coat.

3.) Dry the walls quickly with a small fan in the room. Wait 3 – 4 hours to add the 2nd or final coat of paint.

4.) While waiting to re-coat fix all the drywall blems using quick dry drywall joint compound. Once drywall repairs are dry sponge sand them and re-coat with more drywall compound if needed.

5.) Once all repairs are finished roll over them with your paint roller to get a primary coat on them.

6.) Now you simply cut in again and roll out your final coat of paint and you are done!
