Painting is the No. 1 do-it-yourself home improvement project, and here are my three favorite painting tips:
- Before using a new roller, spray it with a mister. Then roll off the excess water on a piece of cardboard. It removes the loose fibers, so they won’t end up on your wall.
- Instead of pouring paint directly into a tray, line the tray with a sheet of aluminum foil. No need to buy a liner, and it makes clean-up a snap.
- If you’re taking a break from painting, wrap the roller sleeve in a plastic bag, secure with a twist tie, and store it in the refrigerator.
