To Paint Shiplap-Spray or roll it? What nap roller? Satin or Semi
Dinky Diana Kay Smith on Jun 16, 2017I would definitely roll it and the paint type depends on where you are using the shiplap. I would discuss with the home-improvement store helper as to what type of paint and roller you should useHelpful Reply
Patricia on Jun 16, 2017I think it's a matter of personal preference whether to spray or roll it. You could even brush it on. If you use a roller then choose once with a smooth finish. I like a satin or eggshell finish. Good luck on your project!Helpful Reply
Dinky Diana Kay Smith on Jun 16, 2017I would seal or prime the shiplap. It depends on the style of your home and your decor. The stain is good to maintain a wood look but paint can also add great color.Helpful Reply
Linda Sikut on Jun 16, 2017I think the satin or semi is a personal choice and depends on where it is. For example, in a bathroom, I'd use Semi but in a living room, I'd use Satin. But that's my personal opinion. I don't have experience painting shiplap so I tried google to see what's out there. I found and interesting article with the pros and cons of brush vs spray. This might give you some insight. https://thecraftsmanblog.com/brushing-vs-spraying-paint-which-is-best/Here's a video showing a lady finishing a wall in 3 min. Don't you wish you could paint that fast. LOL Seriously she used a roller and a brush. Check it out. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=iei_Xjv3hqMHTHHelpful Reply
