best way to paint with two people?


Painting 2 rooms, one much larger than the other. I'm probably going to have to do one room at a time because the two rooms will meet at an outside corner. It's my and my girlfriend. I know you are supposed to keep a wet edge while painting, so I'm not really sure what's the best way to take advantage of the extra set of hands. Any advice?

Often with a two-person team one cuts and one rolls
The cutter gets a head start
The roller has to get drinks (or snacks) before rolling

No...just the bottomless cooler and giant thermos


The drinks or snacks is a DIY thing
A pizza/beer run works too
