It is thus necessary to start by
measuring the part to be remade, without taking account neither of the windows, nor of the doors.
To divide the perimeter thus obtained by the width of a roller. You thus have the exact number of panels (one calls that of the breadths) which will be reproduced on your walls. By measuring the height of ceiling, while taking a safety margin, and by knowing that a paper roller paints in general makes 10 meters, you can now calculate the number of rollers which are necessary for you. By safety, do not hesitate especially to take additional, for stage with your miscalculations, or your maladresses...

Never forget to open the window to paint the hidden parts. Lastly, leave half-opened it the time of drying, by actuating the mechanism from time to time to prevent that painting does not block it. Lastly, always stop your part by the plinths, once that all was cleaned. To avoid painting the floor at the same time as the plinths, simplest is to use the cover of a magazine (as what your Cr?ola can really be used for tout...) by slipping it between the plinth and the floor.
