How to Paint the Ceiling with the PaintStick EZ-Twist
We are remodeling our guest bathroom. I wanted to add color, but was afraid it would make the small room feel smaller. So instead… we added color to the ceiling!
Since painting a ceiling can be a pain, we turned to our favorite painting tool: the HomeRight PaintStick EZ-Twist. We fell in love with the PaintStick when we painted the tall walls in our stairway. And knew it would make quick work of painting the ceiling. I love that the paint is loaded into the handle of the roller so you don’t have to reach down to load the roller over and over. Also, the longer handle makes it easy to paint the ceiling without even needing a ladder.
Any painting project is easier with a second set of hands, so I enlisted the help of my husband. He loves using the PaintStick EZ-Twist so it worked out great! I was in charge of cutting in, and he followed behind me with to fill in the colorful ceiling. To make cutting in the ceiling quicker, we used the HomeRight Quick Painter. This is similar to the PaintStick, but with a pad for cutting in. You load the handle with paint and don’t have to worry about balancing a bucket while standing on a ladder.
Take the time to prime the Quick Painter into a paper towel before pressing it to the ceiling. The paint can sputter when it is first squirted onto the pad.
To load up the handle of the PaintStick EZ-Twist, make sure the fill tube is completely submerged in the paint in the can. Then press the PaintStick on it, hold it at a 45 degree angle, release the latch, and slowly pull the handle back.
Make sure you are rolling it back and forth when you push the paint into the roller so it doesn’t drip or pool in the roller. And then you are ready to paint!
