When it comes to painting, we have always been the type of people who do alot of prep work (we love our blue masking tape!) to make our paint jobs come out clean. But we saw something today that could lend a hand in the prep phase...

Because we hate buying things before we know if they really work, we are curious if any of you have tried the "Zibra Edge Trimmer No Tape System With Liner and Grate." We found it while we were cruising Home Depot's website (Did you know Behr paint is $5 off gallons right now?)

In theory it eliminates the need to pretape your work (excluding windows of course). Which sounds like it would be a huge time saver. It is a series of mini rollers that do your edging for you. They could be a good investment, priced at $18.88 if they do actually save you time.
But we know how these things go... they aren't always what they are cracked up to be. We can see where the paint might drip and flow like lava over our nice white trim. Has anyone ever given one a go in a real world situation?
