How to paint with a roller

When you’re painting a ceiling with a roller, keep the end of the roller facing the side of the surface that you have already cut in. This will make sure that the roller’s metal frame doesn’t damage your walls.

Step by Step Instructions

1 Lay down the drop sheet
2 Sand the cabinet door
3 Apply the undercoat
4 Lightly sand the undercoat
5 Apply the top coat
6 Sand the top coat
7 Apply the second coat
8 Let the paint dry
  • Step 1. Lay down the drop sheet

    Lay a drop sheet down on the surface you’re working on. Place the Kaboodle door on two pieces of timber so that it’s elevated from the work surface. 

  • Step 2. Sand the cabinet door

    Use the 240 grit sandpaper to lightly sand the sides of the cabinet door. Wipe away any dust with your hand. 

  • Step 3. Apply the undercoat

    Stir the undercoat thoroughly before using it. Pour it into the roller tray. Use the 5mm mohair roller to apply evenly on the front and sides of the door. Painting the sides last will prevent the paint from dripping. The 5mm roller will also give you the flattest possible finish and the best sheen from the top coat. Leave to dry. 
  • Step 4. Lightly sand the undercoat

    Once the undercoat is dry, use the 240 grit sandpaper to lightly sand the cabinet door. Wipe away any dust after sanding.

  • Step 5. Apply the top coat

    Stir the paint thoroughly before pouring it into the roller tray. For a smooth finish use the 5mm mohair roller to paint the top and sides of the cabinet door. For a more textured finish use a high-density foam roller. Let the paint dry.

  • Step 6. Sand the top coat

    Once the first coat is dry, give the door a light sand with the 240 grit sandpaper. Wipe away any dust.
  • Step 7. Apply the second coat

    Use the roller to apply the second coat of paint to the front and sides of the cabinet door. 

  • Step 8. Let the paint dry

    Now all you need to do is let the paint dry before attaching the cabinet door hardware.
