Do I paint the ceiling first or last?

Avoid tracking paint through the house

When you paint an entire room, paint the walls first. Then, with drop cloths on the floor, paint the ceiling last. That way, splatters which land on the floor can be rolled up in the drop cloths, you can remove your shoes, and no paint will be tracked through the rest of the house.
