Painting Inside Corners


I did a search but didn't find anything. I'm not a full time painter but have painted a couple of the last houses I worked on. Maybe I'm too anal but I've always hated how the inside corners look when painting drywall. What I mean is, the roller obviously doesn't work to get all the way into the corner. I've used a paint brush and some of those narrow foam rollers that fit into the corner but always go back to the paint brush. I can always see where the rolling texture meets the brushing texture and I hate it
Is there a better way or am I looking to close

If I had my way I would spray everything

Re: Painting Inside Corners


You're looking too close

You could try a hot dog roller (mini roller) with a sleeve with a nap
They usually have nap on the ends so they get into the corners w/o a brush
...but not as well as a brush and of course you run into other issues
But you may like it, it's worth a look

I have a couple of those but they probably won't work much better than a regular roller. I find that paint builds up on the end. Guess I'll just have to live with it.

Re: Painting Inside Corners


Reminds me of a great story one of my guys told me. They sent an apprentice on their job to the store to buy a "corner brush". They made up a whole story about how it looks and how it works. After about an hour, the apprentice came back frustrated that he could not find one, nor could the dude at the paint store help him out.

Do you pay them by the hour?

No--not my employee--and that's the same question I asked. His reponse was "it was worth it for the laughs".

Not on my dime!
