Make any paint job a breeze with these awesome painting tips and tricks.
I’m getting ready to paint a few rooms in our house and I thought I’d share some painting tips I’ve come across recently. You can never have too many tips and tricks up your sleeve especially when it comes to painting and DIY projects.
First up, I found this awesome tip. Use a rubber band or wire hanger to remove access paint from the brush to keep the can’s rim clean. I can’t believe I never thought of this before!! No more paint dripping down the can!

Use painters tape to protect the metal and handle from being covered with paint.
This has to be the best tip ever! Use a hammer and a nail to make holes around the inner rim of the paint can so paint drips back into the can. Some people are so stinkin’ smart – way smarter than me because I never would have thought of this!!
