Ralph Lauren Paint – River Rock How-To Guide

Are you looking to spruce up your home and update it with a fresh coat of paint? This week at Friedman’s Home Improvement, Ralph Lauren Interior Paint is on sale for up to 16% off!  That’s a terrific deal and a great way to give your place a fresh look without breaking the budget.

If you are not familiar with Ralph Lauren Interior Paint, it’s great. Not only is it a high quality paint, but the colors they offer are used by many interior designers. For example, one of the color series of Ralph Lauren Interior Paint is “River Rock”, inspired by the weathered and muted tones of water-worn rocks. Fitting for both sleek and rustic interiors, the River Rock collection will give the room a relaxing and subdued feel.

If you would like to see how beautiful the River Rock collection from Ralph Lauren Interior Paint will look in your room, here are a few steps for a successful painting experience.


You will need:

  • One gallon of Ralph Lauren Interior Paint for every 100 square feet with 2 coats.  Make sure you measure your room so you can have enough paint on hand.
  • Latex primer
  • Low-tack painter’s tape
  • 3” nylon/poly trim paint brush
  • 9” paint roller frame with regent metallics/ candlelight cover (for texturing)
  • 4 ½” paint roller frame with regent metallics/ candlelight cover (for texturing)
  • Paint roller tray
  • Tarp (to catch drips and protect the floor)


To begin:

1      Clean the walls and prime with latex primer.

2      Apply painter’s tape along the border of the painting area.

3      Working in small sections, take the 3” paint brush and paint the first coat of paint from the corners and edges of the wall to towards the center.  Then use the 4 ½” roller to blend brush lines frequently for easier blending.

4      Once the edges are worked in, use the 9” paint roller to apply the first coat of paint in the wall’s center area, making sure you have equal paint distribution.

5      Allow the base coat to dry for at least 4 hours before applying the second coat.

6      Apply the second coat, following the same steps you used for the first coat of paint.

7      When finished, clean your brushes and roller tray.

8      Allow the final coat to dry overnight before removing tape.

9      Enjoy your freshly painted room!
