50. Cut in a Paint Job

Paint the trim first, then cut in the wall paint against it—because that's a far easier cutting-in job than the other way around, says Henrique. Use a high-quality angled sash brush to cut in the perimeter of one wall, then roll that wall while the brushed paint is still wet, before moving to the next surface. Bring the roller as close to the edges as possible to cover your brush marks.
