A Painting Trick To Cover Brush Marks

By now, chances are most of us are pros at cutting in around trim and ceilings with our paintbrushes. Even though the rest of the spaces can be tackled with a roller, making your brush and roller marks match up can be a little tricky — but not any more!

When you slide your roller brush onto the frame, the end of the frame pokes out at the end... preventing you from rolling up close to the edges. Instead, before you dip your roller in the paint, slide the brush cover off the roller frame, 1-2 inches should do the trick.

Now when you roll, the brush cover can roll right up against and over your brush strokes from where you had cut in previously. Just like that, your wall has a flawless paint coverage that looks like it's been done by the pros!
