Re: Removing paint from walls question
Agreed on all accounts.

Always end painting at a corner and you will never have a transition line.
Depending on how textured your walls are, you're probably going to be relegated to using a brush, a standard, plastic floor scrub brush will do the job, you can even get one with a long handle which will give you better grip and leverage, and you also won't likely have to use a ladder. I would also recommend the use of a dust mask, as there will not only be plenty of paint flakes in the air, there will be all manner of dust and dirt created by this project that you don't want to be breathing. Safety glasses wouldn't be a bad idea either.
I suffer from CDO ... Its like OCD, but in alphabetical order, LIKE IT SHOULD BE!!!
