4 Cut in the edges of your room with your finish paint.

Use a clean 2-1/2 inch sash brush to cut in the finish paint around the perimeter of the room.

5 Roll on the finish paint.

Starting in the corner farthest from the door, roll on the finish paint using a roller with an extension pole.

6 Let the paint dry overnight before walking on it.

It’s best to let the paint cure for several days before moving in furniture or rugs.

7 Remove any imperfections.

Use 180-grit sandpaper to sand out any imperfections on the floor, such as drips or brush strokes. The smoother the floor, the nicer your finished project will look.
