Painting Quick Tip

I figured I'd throw out a really helpful tip for all of you painters out there since I'm in the middle of painting our bathroom as we speak :) If you are anything like me, you can't waste your whole day away painting something, let it be furniture or even a bedroom.

On more than one occasion, I can't finish a project without being taken away from it. And it sure is a pain in the keister having to wash your paint brushes or rollers every time you stop in the middle. Especially, in between coats drying when the 'break' is only like two hours.

To save my sanity, I found a nifty little way to only wash your brush/roller once during your whole project...and that 'once' is after the whole thing is complete.

Its a little thing called plastic :) I like to use plastic wrap on my rollers and even on the brushes. Or you can use a sandwich bag for the brushes, just secure with a rubber band at the end!

Easy peasy! I've had my brushes stay like this for three days and they were still good :) Just make sure all the air is out of the bag, or the plastic wrap is secure. Its the best time saver ever for any paint project!

Hope this saves you time, your sanity, and your poor hands from getting dry from all the multiple washes :)
