It's your time and money.

Priming an area reveals the faults, which are a lot easier corrected, then, then after a, because it is a kitchen, semi-gloss.

Okay. Here's what it looks like now, in case you wanted to see. I just need to put up a triangular piece of drywall above where the cabinets will be.

Step 1: Prime Everything with the sprayer.
Step 2: Spray the walls (over spray wont matter unless you are painting a dark color)
Step 3: Make her open the box.
Step 4: Tape out the wall with either painters tape and some plastic sheeting or even better use masking film (Link)


On a separate note if the area is really as small as it looks the work cleaning the sprayer is going to make it easier to just roll the paint on.

Yea I'll probably roll the walls and spray the ceiling.
