I am going to re-paint one of my bathrooms using semi-glossy paint for both
ceiling and walls. I have already done one and found that where I brushed the
paint on at the corners and where the ceiling and wall meet - it looked
different than where I rolled it...different enough I had to go back over it
again so it would look the same shade.
I've seen those pads at the store for painting corners. Does this eliminate
these types of problems? Thanks.

Often the amount of paint you put on when you cut in is thicker than
the amount that gets rolled on. Some of us are guilty of cutting in too
far in advance of the roller and get a "hat-band" effect (not that I'd
know anything about this, mind you...).
You can get hat-banding with the little roller pad as well as with a
brush, but I much prefer the roller pad for speed and ease. I just
don't have that steady a hand, although I have come to like a sash
brush with the handle cut down.
