A roller works best for quickly applying an even coat to flat surfaces.
Use a brush or an edging brush to fill in areas the roller cannot reach.
Wait for one coat to dry before applying another (drying time can be
found on the paint can). Some other tools and items you may find useful:
an extension handle for the roller brush, a lot of rags, a paint scraper,
an edging tool, a stable stepladder, masking tape, a painter's cap and
a disposable paint tray liner.
