Smooth Rollers, Smooth Finishes
Having a hard time
getting a smooth
finish on doors
rollers, only 4 or 6
in. long, are made of
dense foam that spreads the
paint or varnish smoothly for a
uniform, mark-free finish (unlike
nap rollers, which leave tiny bumps).
You'll be amazed the first time you use one.
But the rollers aren't perfect. They
spread the finish thin, so you usually
need two coats. And the rollers are a pain
to clean, but since most cost less than $5
at home centers and paint stores, you
could toss them when you're done.
