When you decide to paint a room, don’t forget to paint crown molding. Painting crown molding is a good way to give your interior house the new look and refinement it deserves. But this is not as easy a job as it looks. Here are some tips on how to paint crown molding professionally.
Best Way To Paint Crown Molding
There are some ways of painting crown molding. One of them is by hand, using a high-quality brush, and the second way is to use an airless sprayer with a spray gun extension. Spraying is more recommended than brushing because in this way you reduce time and energy not having to climb up and down a ladder all day with a paintbrush.
Should You Paint The Crown Before The Ceiling?
No. The first thing you should do is to paint the ceiling, the crown molding second, and at last the walls. Because, if you paint the ceiling after the molding, you might sling ceiling paint onto your freshly painted crown.
