5 Quick Painting Tips
What About the Ceiling?
Most pros recommend Benjamin Moore ceiling paint, which is “low splatter” (because it’s thicker than standard paint) and ultra-flat, so it hides mistakes well (shiny paint shows flaws). The entire range of Benjamin Moore colors is available. Follow essentially the same technique used for walls: Roll away from where you’re standing, then zigzag back toward yourself, working in small, overlapping sections. But don’t try to paint directly above your head—it’s too difficult to see what you’re doing.
