Painting Projects

So, you have a painting project coming up, well I have some tips to make the job a little easier on you.

If you don't want to take the time to remove all of your doorknobs or hardware, try this: apply a little petroleum jelly with a cotton swab around the base of the knob (being careful not to get it on the door). Then, wrap the knob with aluminum foil. The foil will protect the knob from splashes and splatters. If you happen to get paint where you rubbed in the petroleum jelly you'll be able to simply wipe it off with a cloth after the rest of the paint dries.

When you're cutting in or working in a tight space with a brush it's a pain to lug around the paint tray, instead, fill a yogurt cup with paint and go to work. Not only is the cup easy to hold; but if you get the kind with the lid you can seal it up and save the paint for little touch ups throughout the project.

If you've ever had to lean against the top step of your ladder while you're working on the upper part of a room you know it can be a pain, literally. Cut a piece of pipe insulation to the width of the ladder and then slip it in place over the edge of the step. It will give you a cushiony place to lean while you work!
