What do you paint first walls or trim?

Paint the Trim First, Then the Ceilings and Walls. Pros usually follow a certain order when painting a room. They paint the trim first, then the ceiling, then the walls. That's because it's easier (and faster) to tape off the trim than to tape off the walls.

Also to know is, do you paint the walls or the skirting boards first?

Emulsion paint for walls and ceilings can be applied direct to old painted surfaces, once cleaned and sanded, with two coats normally being required. If painting the whole room, start with the ceiling first, then the walls and then doors, windows and skirting.
