I used behr paint primer... egg shell..I sized the walls (scraped lightly with a razor blade) this will take a little of the shiney glaze off the walls,... just use light pressure..this will also find and purtrusions ...washed the walls with with degreaser,then wipe'd clean with clear water.. when washing I used a scrubby pad...
to get the pro look on the edges... get some edge lock blue tape... and use clear paintable caulking in a small bead on the edge..run your finger down the edge to wipe the cauking down..
I used a 1.5 sash tool to paint most. 6'' Winnie,, and a hand full of assorted artist brushes
the trick here is to take your time.....tape everwhere that you might slip.. you don't want to try to clean up.... it's easier to touch up than clean up
I don't have paint any where it's not supposed to be .. and every where it is supposed to be.... al my lines are straight arrow...
when you think you are all done.... shake what left in the gallon...open the can and use the lid as an artist pallet, grab a handful of assorted artist brushes and go touch up any little spots ..keep a clean painters rag at all times.. and a little glass of water... if the paint is not flowing good.. dip your brush in the water and mix the paint up on the lid... when you run out of paint on the lid..... go wash the lid... you don't want what ever skinned up to get in you paint job... or in the gallon when you put the lid back on... if you have a different lid.....( I keep everything..lol) put that or some plastic over the gallon....never ever ever ever take a open gallon of paint in the motorhome and set it on the floor or cabinet
take the pocket door off and out of the motorhome and paint them there
I used shop towels in stead of drop cloths to cover the floors and counters....
have fun... post some pics
the guy at the paint store LOL'd when I told him all the samples were the wrong color.. and had him mix a custom color for me
