A few weeks ago we FINALLY had our green ceilings painted white. The painters were nice enough to cut in the wall color all around the ceiling but once they did that it made me realize how much painting I still have left to do. When we first moved in I painted the walls but after tearing down the wall between the living room and kitchen, and adding the wall where our ovens are now, I have never gone back and painted it. Yep, over a year later I still have an unfinished wall that only has texture on it. I really don’t like painting that much, it’s just one of those necessary evils in the DIY world. 🙂
Luckily I get to partner with awesome companies like HomeRight, that make painting experiences a whole lot easier. Today I’m going to share my new favorite painting tool and how it makes painting those pesky corners and trim edges so much easier! And I’m giving a couple away at the end so make sure to go all the way to the end of the post!
If you don’t like, or you’re not good at, cutting in edges, then you’ll love this handy dandy tool from HomeRight. The Quick Painter goes right around edges easily and it holds paint in the handle so you don’t have to keep dipping it!
The release of the paint is controlled by the applicator with the handy on-handle trigger. The high quality pads spreads the paint really well so you don’t end up with streaks, like with other edgers I’ve tried.
It goes around edges and corners smoothly and the built-in edging guide makes cutting in a cinch!
Here’s what I learned –
- Make sure you read the directions. I don’t always read directions but I was glad I did.
- Painting on a new wall, that has never been painted before, is WAY harder.
- If you have really textured walls, like we do, I recommend using painters tape around baseboard trim. Cutting in vertically with the Quick Painter, was much easier than horizontally with the texture.
- The paint releases really quickly, and with a good amount of pressure, so I recommend very light pulls on the trigger, instead of pulling it all the way to the handle. If you do that you’ll get too much paint and have drips (I learned the hard way).
- The Quick Painter is super easy to clean. There is so much pressure in the handle that it shoots water right through it, and rinses the tool really quickly. (This is why you want to read the directions because you don’t want to shoot paint all over your house!)
- The Quick Painter is so much easier to use than other edging products because the paint is stored in the handle. You aren’t constantly going back to dip the pad, which makes the job much quicker and easier, hence the name “Quick Painter”. 🙂
The Quick Painter leaves a clean, perfect line that makes it easy to roll up to with the PaintStick EZ-Twist.
Today I’m excited to be giving away a complete painting essentials kit for those of you that don’t really like to paint, like me! I’m giving away two sets of the Quick Painter and the PaintStick EZ-Twist from HomeRight! If you have a painting job to get done this will make it SO MUCH EASIER!
