Tyler Zowat, noticed the listing and called me to come to his home in Perris, California. He had a little girl's room with blue walls and since his daughter had grown up and moved to private school, he wanted the bedroom closet finished. This post is a continuation of the previous post to finish the painting the wall blue. 

This post shows the seven steps to use an impact driver.

Step 1: Fig.1 above show a large plastic tarp that was used over the bedroom carpeting.

Step 2: Fig.2 shows that the doorways were taped with painter's tape.

Step 3: Fig.3 painters tape was applied on all edges of the carpeting.

Step 4: Fig.4 and fig.5 shows the tools needed to cut the bedroom walls.  Both a paintbrush and a paint cutter will edge the walls.

Step 4: Fig.6 through fig.9 shows the cutting of the paint near doorways, electrical plugs, closets and near the ceiling. The cutting tool prevents the paint from touching the ceiling thus leaving the wall with a neat trim painted line.

Fig.7 Cut around the receptacles
Fig.8 Cut above the closet
Fig.9 Cut near the ceiling
Step 5: Fig.10 through fig.13 shows the walls being painted.
