What is the best tool to paint a wall?
Paintbrush. While rollers are great for covering large wall spaces, brushes are ideal for smaller areas and for edging. Natural-bristle brushes are used for applying oil-based paints, while polyester brushes are best for latex paints. Choose an angled brush to make it easy to paint straight lines along areas of trim.

Do you need primer to paint walls?
Prime Your Walls Apply primer before painting the walls. A primer is essential if you want to go from dark walls to light or white walls. Many brands offer paint and primer in one. First, use a paint brush to “cut in” 2- to 3-inch bands around the edges, corners and frames of a room.
Do professional painters use paint trays?
