Today I’m sharing some Painting tips with you! I recently had the opportunity try out some nifty painting tools by HomeRight Tools. These tools made painting my new Craft Room a breeze, and I was able to finish the room in record time!
This is one of the before photos. Previously this was my son’s room, but his sister moved out and he took over her old room. Which left an extra room in the house, so I snagged it for my craft room and I can’t even begin to tell you how excited that I am, to have a whole room just for crafting and DIY!!
This is another before photo, this is the opposite side of the room. The color was gold and it was filthy. You can see there are stains on the walls, where he used to sit at his computer and put his feet up on the walls. Yuck! I shampooed the carpet first, since I wanted to freshen up every surface. Next it was time to paint!
The first thing I did was use the quick mask around the baseboards. This stuff worked great! It was fast and easy to apply, and unlike regular painters tape, it folds out to protect the portions of your flooring, or carpet, that are closest to the wall.
Next I trimmed out my walls, using the Quick Painter. Loved this tool! You just suck the paint up right from the can and into the handle, then pop the little paint pad head on and you’re good to go!
I saved loads of time with this thing. I finished trimming the whole room, including the baseboards, ceiling trim, and around the door, and outlets, in about an hour!
I have to give credit where credit is due, I did have some moral support along the way!
Next I tested out the Paintstick EZ Twist. Similar to the Quick Painter, the paint goes right up into the handle. You first snap on the lid, that comes in the box. It has a tube that sticks out of the top of it.
You place the handle of the Paintstick over the tube and twist to siphon the paint up into it. Just make sure you have it at a 45 degree angle, if you don’t the paint won’t go up as easily. You just paint like you do with a regular roller. It has a handy cover that keeps paint splatters at bay too!
I was able to do this whole wall with out stopping to refill, which is a HUGE TIME SAVER!! I was able to paint all of the walls in about an hour, and then I spent about another half an hour on touching up. So my total time for the entire room, including the trimming out, was about 2 1/2 hours!! Had I painted this room with my regular paint tools, I’m sure it would have taken me the entire day. How awesome is that!!
I love that I was able to get this room painted so quickly and I’ve already started crafting in it! Once I’m totally done with the set up of the room, I’ll share more photos with you guys.
Be sure and check out the HomeRight web site for more information about these and other time saving tools! All of these tools can be purchased from their website and some of them are also available at Walmart.
