Painting Tips – Paint a Room Fast with HomeRight Tools

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!
 Craft Room Before

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!!

Craft Room Before

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!

Painting Tips - Homeright Painting Tools

These are the tools that I used from HomeRight. I tried out the Paintstick EZ Twist, the Quick Painter and the Quick Mask.

 Homeright Mask

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!

 HomeRight Paint Lid

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!

Painting Tips - Craft Room After

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!!

Painting Tips - Craft Room Makeover

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.

  1. Hi Karen!
    Dropping by since honestly I learned more from you in that shuttle ride to the airport than the whole conference. You sweet and generous and wanted to keep in touch. ANd you’ve had a LOT of energy tackling painting one day back! Sandra

    • Karen Watson says:

      Thanks for stopping by Sandra! I’m glad I was able to help you out with your questions! It was so nice meeting you and chatting with you in the shuttle!

  2. This is so great. I am in the process of setting my new office up and house. So next will be all the painting to make it my own personal touch on the spaces. I will for sure try these tips and products.

    • Karen Watson says:

      Thanks Melissa! That’s so exciting that you’re getting a new office! I hope you have fun decorating your new space!!

  3. Thank you for sharing Karen. I first used this paint stick a few years ago and was so impressed with the time it saved. I have told everyone about it ever since – no more pans and frequent bending over for me! Plus, the long wand lets you reach to the ceiling without a ladder! I will have to try the edger next time as I’ve continued using a brush for that.

    Thank you for all the wonderful ideas, advice and images you share. I don’t go a day without visiting your site!!!!

    • Karen Watson says:

      Thanks for your input Susan, I’m glad you had the same experience with this tool, and you’re right you don’t need a ladder! I’m so happy you are enjoying my site!!

  4. Thank you for sharing this post Karen! I’m definitely intrigued and want to try these products out on my next room makeover. I think my husband (who is anal when it comes to painting walls) would actually let me paint! Maybe I’ll just paint a room when he’s out of town and impress him. Looking forward to seeing your Craft Room reveal!

  5. We just bought a big, ugly house that we will be painting from top to bottom. How was clean up with these tools? It seems like it would be a lot of extra work cleaning out the paint that sticks to the inside of the tube.

    • Karen Watson says:

      Hi Erica,
      It really isn’t that bad to clean out the tube. In the same way that you pump paint into the handle, you can pump warm soap water up too and then push it back out. It took longer to clean the roller part, just because it had soaked so much paint into it, but I just let it soak overnight and finished it up in the morning, not bad at all!

    We just recently renovated our basement including a new set of stairs going down to the basement. I would like to use some of your graphics on the risers of the stairs, what would you suggest for transfer material? Please keep in mind that somewhere down the road I may want to change the graphic, so removing it could be an issue.
    Thanks for a most interesting daily email

    • Karen Watson says:

      Hi Carolyn, I would probably use method number 1 on my “12 easy transfer methods” post. You can just transfer the outline onto the steps and then fill in with paint pens or paint and a small brush. Since it’s just paint, you can always paint over it later if you get tired of it!
