       I enjoy painting only slightly more than a trip to the dentist, but I painted the bathroom yesterday. My wife usually does the painting but she injured her leg recently so it's my turn.
      When you paint a room, do you do the trim first and then use the roller, or roller then trim?
I used to be cute and adorable. Then, I had my first birthday. Been downhill ever since.

 I do the trim last.  Such as I painted the office awhile back and still haven't painted the trim.  LOLOL   I read that the trim is usually more glossy type of paints. ????

Are you talking cutting in with an angle brush around the trim edges. Then roller painting the rest? Yes.

I cut in the edges 1st then roll the wall. I think the wall looks framed by the brush strokes if you do it after rolling.

I use a trim cut tool so you don’t have to tape. Cut in the trim and go back with a roller like Bonus said.
