What order do you paint ceiling trim?
Similarly, it is asked, what should you paint first ceiling walls or trim?
If you're painting an entire room, first paint the ceiling, then the walls. It's also usually better to paint large areas like walls before repainting the trim; because you'll work more quickly when covering open areas, this can result in roller spatters, overspray and occasional errant brushstrokes.
Furthermore, do you paint the walls or woodwork first? Many homeowners paint the walls first, then move on to the trim while they wait for the first coat to dry. Homeowners should think more strategically, says Rich O'Neil of Masterworks Painting. "Paint all the woodwork first—the first and second coats—then move onto the walls," says O'Neil.
Likewise, people ask, what order do you decorate a room?

Do I need to cut in twice when painting?
Don't cut in twice and then roll. Cut in one coat and then roll on one coat, so the coats dry together and create a smoother finish.
