1 – Wrap the inside of the paint pan with glad press n seal – it works great and makes cleanup a cinch!
2 – Oh my poor trackpad fingers (and forearms) how you throb. Painting can make you feel so out of shape. Just a warning…
3 – Tape the dropcloth to the baseboards so it doesnt shift while you walk around.
4 – Have baby wipes handy to wipe away any messes, because you will inevitably hit the ceiling or the baseboards with the roller or have a drip accident.
5 – Be sure to do 2 coats. I thought I could get away with one coat, but as I saw this appear, I had to make an emergency trip to the paint store for more paint before they closed.
