    • 2). Lay down newspapers or a drop cloth to catch any wayward paint drips or spills.

    • 3). Pour primer into the paint tray.

    • 4). Edge the bathroom with prime using a paintbrushr; cut in along the ceiling, baseboards and any trim or existing mirrors and cabinets.

    • 5). Use a roller to prime the rest of the walls.

    • 6). Rinse both the paintbrush and the roller well until the water runs clear, squeezing or shaking out excess water.

    • 8). Dry the tray well and pour the chosen paint into the tray.

    • 9). Apply two coats of paint, trimming first with the brush and following behind with the roller; paint one wall completely before beginning on the next wall.
