How To Paint a Ceiling – D.I.Y. At Bunnings


I’m going to show you how to paint a ceiling.
So you’re going to need a drop sheet to protect your floors and surfaces. You’re going to
need obviously your paint, a paint stir, and something to open your paint can with, roller
and roller tray and. of course, brushes. We also need buckets to put our paint and which
makes it easy once you’re up your ladder to hang onto your paint pot, and, of course,
some safety gear. I’ll also need a ladder and an extension pole for my roller. So normally you would undercoat and seal your
ceiling. I’m going to use the existing paint today as my undercoat. You might notice that
your paint has separated in the tin, and you need to give it a really good stir to mix
the pigments. Just make sure that you’ve got it mixed in nicely and that all the pigments
are balanced and joined back together again. So I’m going to transfer some painting into
a smaller container which will make it easier for painting when I’m up the ladder. Now that
you’ve got your paint ready to go, you’re ready to cut in your ceiling. Cutting in is basically outlining your ceiling
ready for the roller work. So once you’ve cut in your ceiling, you’re ready to roll
your ceiling in. So you need to load up your roller tray. When you’re filling up your roller
tray, just fill it up with paint to the bottom of the grid. Once you’ve loaded your tray
with paint, put your roller into the well and draw it up along the grid two or three
times to coat it evenly. Make sure you don’t overload your roller and make sure the paint
is evenly coated on your roller to avoid any drips. To begin your rolling, start about a meter
out from the corner of your room and make sure that your first stroke of your roller
is always away from you. Then using a W formation work backwards towards the corner of your
room. The W formation is great because it allows you to apply the paint evenly off the
roller. Once you’ve given your first coat plenty of time to dry, it’s time to get up
there with your brush and your roller again. Cut in with your brush and using the same
W formation complete you’re painting of the ceiling. So now I’m finished with my top coat,
it’s looking great, and that’s how you paint a ceiling.
