In awkward places, sweep the cobwebs round brush attached on the pin with tape. Then the ceiling and walls wet with water from the spray gun and allow the room to dry.
The next step – Stripping the panels from the old painting. Take a putty knife or any other sharp instrument and scrape off the old weak paint off the walls.

Do this around the perimeter at the entrance, or let your partner. You take a roller, dip it into the paint and break in the cuvette. Now hang it to the wall near the floor and move the roller up on the panel, shading the paint along the wall, then across. Most try to soak the roller in paint, procrastinate the panel without gaps. After the first painting panels, leave the surface to dry, then paint the walls a second time. Oil paint spreads easily and protects the surface very well, so you will easily cope with this work.
