Even when you’ve been painting forever, you can still learn a new trick or two. I’m always happy to share my secrets, like this new time-saver for how to paint a room. Did you know that winter is a great time to paint? Modern paints are low-VOC’s, so you can paint even with the windows closed. Paints dry quickly in low humidity, so it’s really a great time to paint up the inside of your home. And I’ve got a favorite new tool to help paint any room.
This little paintstick might not look like much, but it’s my new best friend. It’s the little brother of the PaintStick I told you about last year. The hard part, of course, was removing the wallpaper, but even that was made easier by a nifty little gadget that you’d have to fight me to part with.
There are three things to love about this Homeright QuickPainter:
- It is brilliant. I painted an entire wall, INCLUDING edging, in about 10 minutes. Holy Cow!
- The clean up is cake. This has been one of my favorite things about all HomeRight products.
- It is re-usable. There’s no throwing this baby in the landfill.
The magic, of course, is the paint that you draw into the handle. You release it very slowly as you need it. No more bend, dip, offload, brush. Bend, dip, offload, brush. Bend, dip, offload, brush. Now THIS is how to paint a room!
I could go on but, blah, blah, blah, at this point, I know what you are thinking…
HOLY COW, did she really paint AND EDGE that entire wall in about 10 minutes? All around the ceiling edge, the windows, door frames, and baseboard molding? I’ve got to get me one of those.
No problem. I happen to have one, thanks to my awesome friends at HomeRight. Just enter here, and I’ll select a winner on February 29. (You knew this is a leap year, right? Might as well make that extra day work for us.)
