Thanks guys. Yes white it will be. Anyone use a 1/4" nap roller? I know it doesn't carry as much paint, but how does it look? Better? Worse?
I'm painting the living room ceiling. It is the most entertaining thing I can think of doing...
Which roller nap to use? In the past I have used 3/8" in bedrooms, and it looks ok. Will 1/4" give a better appearance? I am prioritizing quality of finish, not speed or paint coverage. I want it to look good when I am sitting there staring at it in a few year.
Thanks for any tips!
A nap sounds good. Better than repainting the ceiling...Even if cabin fever is causing the walls to slowly close in.
I matched the wall as far as roller choice. Nothing smooth goin on in regards to paint when I painted this former foreclosure.
What I did not do and almost recommend ,is.... use the paint that goes on pink then dries to white to show you where you messed up your coverage :because I was just so danged good at painting.
Looking up at the ceiling about a year later ,I noticed a couple tiny spots somebody messed up coverage on....
Which direction should I roll? Parallel to the long or the short dimension of the room? Room is about 16' x 20'.
In the past I have rolled parallel to the long dimension. Does it make a difference? Priority for me is appearance/quality. Time/effort is secondary.
