SEGMENT 1: Painting the Ceiling Like the Pros

Kevin Hermann from Benjamin Moore sits down with us to talk about how the pros paint ceilings!

  1. Use a ceiling paint -- not just a flat wall paint!
  2. Brush Cut the ENTIRE ceiling in first
  3. Keep a wet edge when rolling and work across the ceiling in 4' x 4' squares
  4. When you apply your second coat, roll the paint in the other direction (if you go East-West for the first coat, go North-South for the second)

  • Benjamin Moore's Super Hide Zero
  • Benjamin Moore's Premium Ceiling Paint (great when you are painting with a color on your ceiling).
