Tyler Zowat needed his little girl's room repaired. This post shows how the ceiling was painted with ceiling paint. 

This post shows the nine steps to paint a ceiling.
Step 1: Fig.1 shows the Behr® ceiling paint white 1-gallons on top of a painter' ladder. Ceiling paint was formulated to hide blemishes on the ceiling. This job required a 9-inch paint frame with a 3/8 inch nap roller cover. Placed over the floor a vinyl tarp and taped the tarp with a two inch masking tape at the edges of the tarp.
Step 2: Fig.2 shows an extension pole and screwed into the paint frame. Including metal paint tray with plastic inserts, roller cover and a paint brush used in this job.

Step 3: Moved the roller up and down as needed to get paint onto the roller cover. This step is repeated over and over until the ceiling is painted.
Step 4: Now roll the edges first and do the complete perimeter of the room.
Step 5: Roll the second coat in the opposite direction.
Step 6: Now the second coat is rolled on the twelve foot side and all that needs to be done is to paint the wall side edges.
Step 7: Use a 1-inch paint brush to apply the paint onto the ceiling edges, the goal is to get the edges so the paint roller not to hit the wall. Once that is done all that is needed is to have he paint dry.
Step 8: Fig.3 shows this type of paint dries in two hour to the touch but will take at least twenty-four hours to dry completely.

Step 9: Fig.4 shows that one coat of paint will not provide durability and spots missed when rolling. Two coat of paint will look better and last twice as long. One-coat last just 3-years, while two coats can last up to 10-years. Upper body strength will make this job easier, otherwise at the end of the day, your muscles will definitely let you know you have work a good day.
