Roller Beware

I had used a small sponge roller for the primer and first coat of paint on the laminate I used for the ceiling above the tub and and the exposed wall above the tub/shower surround. This was probably a no no but I just cut and used the old laminate that we took down.

All was going well until I got in a hurry and grabbed a budget regular paint roller for the final coat. BIG MISTAKE.  The Cheap roller left a bunch of fuzz when I first started. I didn't catch it until I was done. Luckily I was able to sand most of it out without having to repaint. It really does not pay to try and cut corners when painting.

I had picked up the rollers out of the budget bin while out buying something else. It was also a brand I had never used before. Lesson Learned.   DO NOT BUY CHEAP PAINT, ROLLERS and BRUSHES and expect professional results.
