7 TRICKS TO A STRESS-FREE PAINTING EXPERIENCE

September 27, 2016

With the brutal summer heat finally coming to a close, now is a great time to tackle house projects that seemed unbearable a few weeks ago.

Painting is a task that can be tricky and time-consuming. Luckily, innovative products have emerged to take some of the hassle out of the job. Here are some of our favorite paint products to make your next project a little less stressful and a little more fun:




1. Perfect tape lines

Don’t waste time manually ripping off and applying tape to prepare an area for painting – use this dispenser to apply tape in one continuous application. Your hands will thank you.
 



 

2. Smooth concrete floors in one step

BEHR Premium Granite Grip can make your concrete floor look brand new by helping to hide cracks and imperfection. Plus, it’s easy to apply and dries quickly.

3. Quickly paint edges

Make your paint job look less rough around the edges (literally), with this nifty tool. Its built-in edging guide helps you get it right the first time around.



 

4. Cover corners with ease

This is the perfect tool for getting in hard to reach nooks and crannies. It also has a clean finish – meaning you don’t have to deal with unexpected paint drips.

5. Spray for smooth coverage

It doesn’t matter if this is your first DIY paint project or you’re professional, the HVLP paint sprayer is an easy-to-use tool that provide smooth results.

6. Flawless touch-ups

This touch-up painter can really come in handy—especially if you have a house filled with children and pets that love to run around. You can store paint for quick and easy applications later (think scuffs and marks that appear over time).
 


                                                                                                                                                                                 

7. Avoid painter's tape bleeds

Ever take the time to put down painter’s tape, only to find it didn’t stop the paint from bleeding through? Frog Tape has a unique formula that reacts to paint to create a micro-barrier, helping you avoid do-overs.
