AGAIN with the HORSE HOCKEY
I think I am going to have to come up with a much stronger term, any ideas?
I am sorry but I cannot participate. I have gotten out my white silk pillow and Japanese dagger and must commit sepico for having used flat paint that shows handprints and cannot be washed. I have brought great shame to my clients over many years.

Well, tht's probably the right thing to do for using cheap paint from HD and Lowes

Alas I failed. As you know, I bought the cheap---but authentic looking--- dagger at a box store. They are my fave places to shop. I could have done more damage with a tape measure from such a place.

I must have hit a rib on the upward cut. The cheap Chinese rivots in the plastic handle popped and I could not hold on to the 1/2" thick piece of steel to complete the sacred cuts. Next time I will wear cheap Chinese work gloves.

And Bag-O-Brushes 20 for $5?
And 1/4" foam rollers 100 for $2?

I like them because you don't have to even think of caring for them. Use them and forget them. They are cheap enough if you leave one out for hours and it turns all crusty and nasty you just grab another one.

Oh well. Was thinking of making layered salmon for dinner. Only place to get it fresh is at Lowe's, Menard's or HD right? If they sell paint, they may even have softshell crabs in season? Makes as much sense as them claiming to sell real paint.

Ok this is what I have so far, Brushes, the spackle which was recommended, Behr Paint & Primer (white), painters tape, and sandpaper. I am attaching pictures before I start because I don't want to screw this up. My question is, should I use the angled brushes for the whole project or should I use a roller, 4" + brushes, or common sense?

You could use the rollers- but each riser is such a small area I would just use the brush. The roller would be just to get it on faster- should be laid off with the brush ( Long way- as if with the grain) either way.
I would also go with a higher sheen than flat- satin on trim is pretty standard.

Take the paint back and get something other than BEHR. And know there is no such thing as paint and primer in one.

Sds- I really feel that blanket statements are really hard for someone not familiar to grasp. There ARE situations that it is true- but just not for all that a primer would be needed. I don't like the box paint either- but it's out there and we have to educate- not just throw pies at it.
Throw this link from JS in your bag of tricks and bring it out for situations like this.

He went through the effort to make it, might as well use it.

Alot of advice givin here is a little knee jerky- help people to "get it".
JMO- not really busting your chops- just upping your game!

Well, foe sure take the flat back and get at least satin, semi gloss would be better yet. I will not comment on the Behr.

I lied
