Normal painting tools including, but not limited to a good quality paint brush, roller pan, roller skin, drop cloths, 3-M tape dispenser, roll of 48" plastic film, premium quality caulk, disposable rags, small bucket of warm water, Blue masking tape, and a lot of patience.
Choosing Paint Colors And Sheen
Paint colors are endless, but should compliment rest of bedroom's decor. Picking best paint sheen for bedroom walls and ceilings is either eggshell and/or flat. All trim should be uniform throughout the home in either semi-gloss or high gloss. Normally all trim is lighter than the wall colors, sometimes matching ceiling colors. All doors are typically painted the trim color as well, in the same sheen also.
After all cleaning has been done, it's time to start masking, protecting carpet, furniture, and personal items from any drips or splatters. Using canvas drop cloths also helps, being able to move them around as needed. Good canvas is the vinyl-backed type used widely in the paint industry.
Caulking Tape Lines

Depending on ceiling texture, the roller skin should be a 1/2" thick to 1". The smoother the texture, the thinner the roller skin is a good rule of thumb.
After ceiling paint has dried, normally 30 minutes, it's time to paint walls, and around cabinets. Remember to keep paint roller pointing the same direction rolling out any interior walls or ceilings. If not, thicker paint lines will probably appear as paint roller pressure is not the same, flipping roller frame, going across ceiling or wall surface. Wall paint will normally dry before you get to the end of the wall, and this can change colors to a drier finish.
Good rule is to apply a good even coat across the entire wall, before going back over what you just painted on the walls. Some paint colors require multiple paint coats, having more colorant added to the base.
Deep tint bases in dark blues, purples, reds, and yellows are notorious requiring multiple coats. An easy less expensive way of painting these walls would be priming first with 50% paint color than finish coat.
Finish coats will lay on to primer much more evenly, not costing near as much as high quality interior paints. Gray colored primers work well under dark blues, reds, and yellows, painting more contrasting, yet relaxing color combinations.
After wall painting has dried, it's time to paint/brush any trim, baseboards the same color as the rest of the home. Keeping a wet edge of paint, using your new brush is the trick, painting trim. Loading up the paint brush, having a steady hand, painting trim can be done free handed, but if uncomfortable performing, another tape line and caulk is in store.
