The process (part 2)
Using a brush, paint a two-inch wide strip in areas where the roller
will not reach (such as corners and near trim). Using the roller paint
an "M" or "W" pattern with your first stroke and
then proceed to fill in the gaps in between. Before applying a second
or third coat be sure to read the drying instructions carefully as drying
times vary between paint brands.
Be sure to clean your painting tools immediately after use. Wait at
least two weeks before attempting to wash the freshly painted area.
