Tape the edges of the wall where it meets the trim.

Use blue painter’s tape to tape the edges of the wall where they meet the edges of the trim. (If you just taped and primed the trim, you can skip this step.)

Stir the paint thoroughly with a stir stick. Never use paint until after you stir it. You'll get bubbles and the color will be uneven.
