Best Products: Pro Paint Grid from Shur Line

After spending two weekends in the past month painting our living room, we're ready to share our favorite painting aid: the Shur Line 1-Gallon Pro Paint Grid. This small piece of red plastic mesh sits directly inside your gallon-sized can of paint — and if you use a small roller — completely eliminates the need for a paint tray (and the messy cleanup)...

The best part? We got our Shur Line paint grid for $.99 at our local hardware store. While it limits the size of roller we can use, our walls are so warped, crooked and wonky that a smaller roller is MUCH easier to use. And the paint grid is easier to clean and cuts down on wasted paint in a paint tray.
