Hey, we get it-- starting a large (or even small!) painting project can be scary. Tackling a room can take hours, and we don't all have the means to hire professional painters.
However, we have good news! The process does not have to be so overwhelming, and there ARE ways to make it easier. Check out these helpful ideas to use for your next project!
- Plan on continuing your paint project later? Tightly wrap your rollers and brushes in plastic bags and put them in the freezer to save clean up time. You can quickly open and thaw them the next day and resume your masterpiece!
- Cover Vaseline over small surfaces you don't wait painted (think hinges, knobs, screws, etc.)
- It's the small things: keep a just slightly damp rag in your back pocket so when paint gets on an unwanted surface, you can wipe it off right away and keep on painting.
- Line your paint trays with plastic bags-- after painting, just toss the plastic bag and voila! You have a brand new paint tray.
5. Tap nails into each leg of chairs and tables to be painted so you can paint all the way to the bottom without waiting for them to dry.
6. Before you start painting, lint roll over your paint roller and Swiffer your walls to avoid getting fuzz on them.
