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…

  1. Can you do a post on how John cleans the brushes and the rollers. Also, he must have a lot of leftover paint in the pan. Does he pour that back into the container? The house is looking amazing! I really enjoy your posts and thanks for taking the time to do them.

  2. I’m curious as to the choice to roll rather than spray the walls and ceilings. Spraying would give you faster coverage and certainly be easier (especially on the knees).

    Can you explain the difference and why you chose one over the other? Thanks.

  3. I like the way you’ve embraced the light-right-next-to-the-wall dynamic ! Spackling or painting, that lamp is your best friend..no surprises down the road ! Keep up the good work. It’s great to see the finish coat of paint go up !

  4. That warm white is an excellent choice for a northern room.

    I love Benjamin Moore. I think it’s a great quality paint. I’ve used that on my exterior twice and both have lasted much longer than the average. Tie it with an excellent prep and you won’t have to repaint for years and years.
