Rolling White Dove

The 5-gallon bucket of Benjamin Moore White Dove–one of the most popular shades of white among interior designers and homeowners.

Time to pour…

Time to roll with an 18-inch roller…

Now it’s really evident how this particular shade of white is soft with a creamy undertone. It has a tad of yellow…

A 9-inch roller is necessary where the wall meets the floor…

And it’s also necessary where the wall meets the ceiling…

Lights need to be shining on the walls to look out for railroad tracks and any particles…

Cutting in Benjamin Moore White Dove

After the ceiling and walls were primed, John cut in the ceiling with (Benjamin Moore) Waterbourne Ultra Flat Ceiling Paint.

He cut in with two coats of paint…

Above the box bay window…

 

After cutting in the ceiling, John rolled it. Then it was time to cut in the walls with White Dove.

He cut in the inside walls and where the walls meet the ceiling…

I came home from work and saw that the kitchen walls were ready to be rolled…

The White Dove is a creamy white compared to the Chicklet white primed walls.

Kitchen Walls

North wall rolled first with primer…

Ready for the east wall…

The 18″ roller has to be loaded with primer…

The 9″ roller needs to be used where the wall meets the floor…

The edge of the 9″ roller has to be dry. If it isn’t, residual paint will create railroad tracks where the wall meets the ceiling…

Using the 9″ roller horizontally…

Always shine a light on your work…

Flawless walls…
