so you know we bought this house. it needed to be painted inside top to bottom. i have had a wagner power painter/roller for a long time, but have never used it. it was one of those deals "to good to pass up (said in deep male voice)" but never opened.
i decided to use the power roller. it worked well, but it was heavy and a little messy. it did cut my painting time way down! it took about 3 hours to put 2 coats of paint on a big living room.
still, my hand was swelling up from the carpel tunnel and i knew i wasn't going to get through the whole house before hubby returns, which was my goal. i took the roller off, taped everything up and went at it with the sprayer. THIS IS THE SECOND MOST FUN THING after the pneumatic nailer!!!!!
a few words of advice. 1. when it says tighten connections with pliers, that is not a suggestion. they are really serious. 2. wear breathing protection. 3. don't spend a lot of money getting your hair done before you paint.
a lot will still have to be done by hand, but where i have already torn out the carpet, the place is getting sprayed with reclaimed paint from the metro recycle center and it's going to be WHITE!!
