    You sir, are the ninja of painters.

  • dave6r41 says:

    I'm doing my first house renovation here in the UK and gods honest truth, your videos have filled me with so much confidence. Thanks

  • Calum Smith says:

    Hi Jeff! Great video as always, thank you!
    Quick question: do you need to do anything after the first sand? i.e. does the dust from sanding not stay on the wall?
    Prepping walls for painting is always so difficult 😩 there’s always a patch that doesn’t take the paint the same way as everywhere else!
    Thanks again!

  • Alyssa Em says:

    Very thorough! I appreciate the time you put into making this and also letting us know how much the prices were and where to get them!!

    You are a great man!!!

  • REBEL ZL1 says:

    I am a painting contractor been painting for 46 years I have a pet peeve when you’re poor pain out of a bucket you always pour from the back of the label so you can always see the front of the label of what paint you have what base what color but that’s just me

  • Ronny Mathew says:

    What about an HVLP setup? Is a spray gun setup just overly priced and complicated? Or does it actually save a ton of time?

  • God’s Kitchen Ministry says:

    Not sure if you’ll see this or respond but if you do I was curious if you have an employee painting would you let him continue painting until he’s done or keep pulling him off his painting job to do other small tasks to go back to painting at least 3 to 4 times over the course of a couple hours?

  • 0ptimistic cynic says:

    The 1980's drywall tape issue can be solved by sealing it with oil primer. My home is mid century and is heavy on wall paper. Instead of removing it I sealed it. Then did the surface to my liking. Great video. Great timing. Thanks.

  • last karma says:

    I have a big dent on a rounded corner in my house… how do I fill that?

  • blewprent says:

    Do you also sand textured walls? In Texas, folks dont have flat walls – everything is knock down.

  • Momma Bear Morrison says:

    Thanks again. Great tips!

  • Happy Fox says:

  • phoenixbluex says:

    If I use tape, does that mean I don't have to "cut" with the paint brush?

  • Kevin Robert says:

    Great video. What grit does he use?

  • roger johnston says:

    does this work over plaster. thanks.Roger

  • Nesma H. Khattab says:

    How do I clean my tools from paint?

  • Dave King says:

    The worst painting I have ever seen you sir are not a decorator !

  • Portallion S says:

    This video is legit… start to finish "how to" and you can tell this guy is a pro! Love it

  • Tefik Tasdemir says:

    You are excellent.
    Greeting from LONDON

  • Sean DeForest says:

    Do you typically fill tack holes or can I just pint over those without them showing through?

  • Mike Michaels says:

    I have watched a few of this guy's videos, and I have to say, he irritates this piss out of me. Maybe it is his bitchy, know-it-all, condescending attitude.

  • bloominhelll says:

    great vid as normal and i love your english accent you did while prepping the wall from nail holes!! "brand new darling" hahah this is coming from an Englishman…keep up the great/hard work man.

  • Linda Sellers says:

    LOVED THIS!!! I thought I was a great painter until I saw your tutorial. Beautifull……THANK YOU SO MUCH!

  • Paula Curran says:

    Great tips. Thank you for showing how to edge properly, Always wondered why I got wobbly lines!

  • Zenab Naaz says:

    i believe you're an aries
    so much into perfection. 😁

  • iftelf says:

    You're edges are so grimy. That's why I paint for myself and do not hire a Pro.

  • trenthink says:

    His brush technique made me cringe! It's bad enough to use a flat brush on edge but swinging a sash tool both ways on edge? Unforgiveable!

  • Scott H Smith says:

    Thanks Jeff! In Chicago we say, “You da man”. And you are. Excellent DIY video. Really well done camera work too

  • Ohana says:

    Great video ..did I misunderstand you said you sand your wall after your 1st coat of paint I did not see you do that or touch on the subject again?

  • Kyfe Tan says:

    that tiny fart at 12:12 hahaha

  • Iolis says:

    I got a great deal out of this video presentation. U Tube at its best and most productive. Thank you so much for your valuable tutorial.

  • Krzysztof Laskowski says:

    You are kind of a taking a piss mate!!!! Painting like a pro???? You are having a laugh 😁😁😁
    You are good but just for the council work…OMG…it must be kind of a joke mate

  • Mike Baku says:

    OMG!…. You are totally real amateur! No proper sending, no proper cutting, no blue tape… Everything wrong…

  • Tekno Statik says:

    I was loving the video up until he started messing up that outer corner cut, where the one paint meets a different paint on an outer corner, lol… I was all like: "No, no, no…. no! What are you doing??". lmao
    Otherwise great video!

  • INSPECTOR FROST says:

    I'm a pro painter. Yes nice and clean but many faults as he clicks his brush round the corner onto the grey. You shouldn't be taping anything. It should all be cut in. Windows. Skirts. Ceilings. Coving. There should be no need for a pro painter to use masking tape. Pro painter.London.

  • INSPECTOR FROST says:

    Flicks his brush. Also always cut in ceilings properly. Can see a miss from here ceiling to wall. Also have a mini roller on the go for corners ,reveals, rads etc Jumbo mini roller head.

  • s says:

    31:38 Admits he doesn't know how to paint. *Scrapes brush dry in to the can so there is no paint on the brush and paints over baseboard with wall flat. Why? Because he doesn't know what he's doing.

    32:07 Admits it took him THREE MONTHS of "training" to get fast enough to keep up with a cut man. This is a completely false story. Any real paint crew would have fired you after the first week or put you on dropcloth detail.
    32:16 Admits it took ANOTHER FIVE OR SIX MONTHS UNTIL THEY LET HIM TRAIN WITH A BRUSH. I don't know how one gets good at something by not doing it, but in his case, BOOM suddenly after six months of on the job osmosis he could cut! WOW!! So talented.

    33:05 Starts painting wall. Takes nearly an entire minute to paint three rollers wide on a wall. The paint is pulled too thin in many spots and is not even.

    34:30 That is the most retarded method of removing a roller sleeve. Slapping the frame like that will weaken the handle, bend the frame and throw paint splatter. Only a prissy bald retard who is afraid of getting his hands dirty would do it this way.

    35:33 Starts cutting

    38:50 Finishes cutting baseboard. (and there seems to be a segment cut out for time – so it TOOK LONGER) Paints the center of the baseboard with his famous floppy limp wrist technique, which if you did that on any professional paint crew would get you sent home by 8:00 AM.

    Modern paints and gravity will not "close the 1/16 of an inch gap and you will see a line where the baseboard meets the floor. That line is the mark of someone who is too lazy to tape, too inept to cut and has never worked on a job site and only makes fake DIY videos.

  • Mi E. says:

    One of the best videos I've ever watched on YT, thank you.

  • Rodin says:

    The key thing this video makes amateurs like me realize is that 50% of a painting job doesn't involve any painting at all – at least half of it is preparation. Do that and you not only get a much better finish, but it's actually quicker too.

  • Stephanie Rogers says:

    If I can’t find Sheetrock 45 is there a good alternative? I can only find something called beadex 45 by the same brand, it I’m not sure if it’s a good alternative.

  • papolap19 says:

    I am in the process of renovating a dated home I just purchased. This is my first home and I bought it with the intention of putting work into it to make it mine. These videos have come in so handy for learning how to do things quickly, easily, cheaply, and CORRECTLY! I work a full-time job and have to do most of the work to my house on the evenings and weekends. The first round of painting I did in my bedroom took forever and I have the rest of the house to do. I went through and did the second coat using your tips- and dropping $10 on a pain pole (godsend!)- and it took a fraction of the time. THANK YOU!

  • Ringo Wong says:

    The best.

  • Leonardo Artist says:

    Great tip about the 45!! Thanks

  • Ben Colli says:

    Ever hear of re coat time? Generally it is 4 hrs. and not 20 min. also if you have busted a tape joint it is generally because there was not enough moisture in the mud and the paper tape sucked it out of the bedding and adding more mud to the top of the tape will not seal it as it will pop loose again in a short time. For those complaining about a clean shirt, if you look close enough you will see shadows of paint where he has wiped it off with a damp rag. You can always learn something from most people and if you only learned 1 thing here you are a little bit more ahead. Cheers!

  • jen burn says:

    BEST explanation of how to cut i have ever heard. Heard many over the years of painting my houses (from 1st and 2nd husbands and my dad) and now working with my sister who does it for a living — and even she couldn't explain it! I CANT WAIT TO SHOW HER and of course she will probably want to kick my ass, but hey! what are sisters for? i will have to review every video before every job i do with my sis and she will never know my secret! THANKS!!

  • Kory James says:

    If you close your eyes he kinda sounds like a canadian Saul Goodman from 'better call saul' .. especially around 23:09

  • Jay Horsley says:

    Eh I was trained to cut it in like a professional

  • M says:

    I wrap tape all around my roller covers before using them. It pulls off any loose fibers on new rolls.

  • Manoah van der wolf says:

    Awesome, just found a live and kicking 'Bob Ross' of 'construct' painting. Just as talented, just as professional, and just as soothing and teaching. This is awesome. Who knew you could learn so much about a 'simple' paint-a-wall task.

  • Shamus Leary says:

    Noticed you didnt show the sanding of the second coat.. is it the same sanding process as the first time? What grit do you use for the sanding?
    Cheers

  • Nouraldien Emam says:

    Do I have to pait the new doors and frames. And if I do have to paint them it has to be 1 code or 2 codes

  • timffoster says:

    Short, sweet, to the point — and professional.
    Thanks!

  • Patriot Painter says:

    Watching you paint made me cringe.

  • Blinky Bartlett says:

    Painters are alcoholic divorcee bums with no moral compass or prospects.

    At least the good ones are.

    Like myself

  • Blanca Cruz says:

    You make it look so easy 😩

  • Lou says:

    Well all I can say is thanks for sharing your expertise. I will put your skills to use on the room I am about to paint. Great tip not only on how to load the brush but the actual extension pole and the fact that it locks instead of twists gets rid of the issue of twisting off that I've had happen. I've wrapped loaded brushes and rollers in plastic grocery bags and set them in the fridge if I need to buy some time and they are fine when I pull them out to use.

  • William Pereira says:

  • R Zambory says:

  • Manuelito_951 Palacios says:

  • prissy134 says:

  • d el says:

  • mark jefferson says:

    Was that a fart at 12:12 or a boo boo, don't make me give you a black eye

  • Austin says:

    Great video! super informative.
    Im about to start a painting job, but concerned with the health risks associated with breathing in paint fumes, after sanding the first coat, etc
    i had read that water based/ acrylic paints are generally harmless while oil based paints can be dangerous(avoid paints with high VOC). and also to allow ventilation.
    id like to hear your thoughts on this, specifically sanding after the first coat of paint.

    Thanks for your time
    Keep up the great work!

  • Rene Aguirre says:

  • Kent Oakley says:

    VERY, VERY, VERY HELPFUL!!!!!

  • Matt Cerrigione says:

    Hey sorry, wasn't sure where to post this question; I have wooden handrails that are peeling like crazy. There appears to be about 5 different layers of colors from the past 30 years under there. I want to strip to bare wood. Should I use a chemical stripper, sanding sponge, or rip it out and buy a new one? Thanks!

  • bdogfilms says:

    Love your videos. Tremendously helpful!! You guys have a new subscriber.

  • Abe T. says:

    You need a drywall pan bro. Btw, fast setting compound still needs primed if its your top coat and its not even used by pros for finishing.

  • Stonehaven says:

    I had a painter paint my hall and now I can see all these patchy looking things. He came back to "fix" it and said it was because of the texture on my wall. He had put more texture than I had so it was showing the paint more. He said he would lightly sand and knock off the tips of his texture and that should fix it. But where he patched small nail holes, he put mud, then sanded and it left a smooth spot…. He again said it was because my wall had light texture so he couldn't really match it. My hall looks bad. I don't want to call him back again because he seems offended but I still have spotty walls and it look worse when the light is off in the hall and natural light is shining in and shadowing all those patches. What can I do?

  • David Harris says:

    20:47 – clumsy!

  • David Harris says:

    Did you sand walls between coats?
    Do you have video for skirting boards and door frames?

  • Russ Holtman says:

    Hey Jeff one suggestion – show them how to hold the brush in your hand and why a paintbrush handle is so long.

  • Amine B says:

    Hello Jeff, i hope you are doing well ! i have a question regarding painting raw dry walls, the joints and screws have been covered..i want to know if i can paint directly on top, obviously i need to sand and apply primer before, but some say that i need to apply mud to all walls, seeling before paint ! thank you.
