Think you cannot paint? You can!

I created The Idaho Painter an alternative to to big box DIY video shows that have actors who only act like they can paint but really can barely act. My mission is to shatter the barriers of entry into painting and convince people that it can be a lot of fun painting and painting fun little projects on your own without an expensive professional painter. No experience is necessary.

You need to video the roller and how it is applying the paint. I really don’t care about the guy standing on the ground. You have more video of him than you do the actual roller and how it is applying the paint.

Paul Rhodes says:

Great video which 18 roller frame do you think is the best thank you for all the great videos.

Enio Celestino says:

Great video! I have a similar job that I am debating on the best and most efficient way to deal with. I have a high ceiling paint job that also includes crack repairs. What would you recommend to be the most cost efficient way for the customer and myself to get the drywall cracks repaired? Customer is occupying the property, scaffolds?

Ken Presley says:

How would you suggest rolling a 2 story, 8 ft wide entry where the entry includes a 4 ft wide staircase? There is not enough room to use an extension pole for a continuous one stroke layout of paint.

Alvarado68 says:

Excellent paint info Chris!  

J Morin says:

what sprayer did you use to cut ? i have a job on thursday with 16′ ceilings to paint. thx.

valenvid says:

Hey Chris, I respect your work. Question, doesnt the spray and roller leave different textures…different look? If so, why roll and paint different places instead of two sprayers or just rolling everything?

Nkoah says:

This video was frustrating to watch; every time the painted came close to the edges in the ceiling, the camera decided to droop down and take the roller out of the shot. I still do not know how he’s doing those near perfect edges from so far away.

joe poye says:

how were the edges painted where the ceiling and walls meet?  The poles are a great option but don’t see where that was shown since that’s the difficult part of painting such high walls.

hurtunow says:

Why not just spray the ceiling and walls?

J W says:

That 18″ roller and long extension pole will whip your butt by the end of the day lol…good times. Been there

Sophia Kang says:

How do you cut the wall close to the ceiling though? I’m really curious

InTheNameOfJustice says:

What a pain the ass


when painting ceilings with a roller don’t you ever use the pink or blue color additive that shows what you have covered. I use it all the time so it helps me distinguish where I have been and to ensure even coverage. once the paint drys the color goes back to flat ceiling white. ever use that?

Pablo Castillo says:

I like you video. I have a similar job and I am really learning something from you. Thanks
