Save Time When Painting

Save Time When Painting

Since we moved into our home earlier this month, it seems all we've been doing is painting. But since our lives run at a rather busy pace, we've only had time to tackle one wall at a time. With each wall requiring multiple coats, the entire process can be quite time consuming. The last thing we want to do after each painting session is spend time washing our brushes only to dirty them up again the next day.

That's when we remembered a tip we picked up years ago when painting white walls in an art gallery. Instead of washing your brushes, liners and paint rollers at the end of each day, wrap them in plastic. The next day, your paint brushes and rollers will still be wet, allowing you to pick up right where you left off. This tip has saved us tons of time (and water) while we're finishing up our painting projects.
