but just had to tell someone!
I'm not a painter! Never claimed to be and really hate doing it but in our new home, there are some places that it really needed to be done, so I got elected! Yuck!
Anyway, has anyone, I'm sure you have, seen those neat little red plastic deals with wheels on them that have a paint pad and it let's you cut in around the door trim and ceiling/walls? I tell you, that has got to be the neatest thing since baked bread! I never have used one since I really love to paint but Susan had one from way back before me and thought what the heck. I figured it was going to be a really big mess with paint dripping everywhere but after a few tries, I was painting like a pro! No drips, no mess! Just clean trimming and FAST too! I started out doing it by hand. A 2 foot section took me about 15 minutes and the more I looked around the large room, I said there has to be a better way. There is! I did the whole room in about 30 minutes. That included going around 6 doors, and the whole ceiling. I know there must be a trick to using it against the baseboards. I haven't mastered that yet. Since the base is rounded at the top, there is really no place for the wheels to run against sqaurely so it was done by hand but this time I taped them off and brushed like crazy! I got done with this room so fast that Bud and I had enough time to go get some lunch and take a 2 mile walk around the park all while Susan thinks we were hard at it! Boy will she be surprised!
Oh well, if any of you have never tried one of those trimming in gadgets, do so next time you HAVE to paint for the little woman! For $ 2.67 it's well worth the money! Just kind of p's me off that somewhere, someone is sitting back raking in on this $2.67 invention and it wasn't me!
Oh I know I could have sprayed everything but only the walls needed painting. The rest is good to go!
