PLEASE help me with how the painting sequence goes

winesnobJune 3, 2012

My rooms have been primed, I thought that my crown and baseboard would be painted standing up in the room, ceiling painted and perhaps a first coat....now they are going to install the crown molding and then paint ceiling and walls....not sure I like this...what should happen, just want to be educated on the process. My walls and ceiling are same color.

Thank you for reporting this comment. Undo

Paint the trim after it is installed, then paint the ceiling. Sure, you can paint the crown before they hang it but the filler used in the nail holes and the caulk needs to be painted anyway so painting it prior to install will only save a small amount of time, it any. Trim, ceilings, walls is the correct order.
