2 Painting Tricks

IMG_4551 The addition is finally at a place where I can paint something.  I am now painting the trim before we attach it to the wall.

Tips #1 is to make a recycled paint container out of an apple juice container.  This way you can have some paint that you can carry with you around the room without making a mess.  I am sure you could use any plastic container. I just cut open the container with kitchen scissors.




The second paining trick is to use a kitchen butter knife when you don’t have a paint can opener on hand.  Just go around the can.  This may bend the knife a little so don’t use really good knifes.  Or maybe you should use your good knifes because they don’t bend as easily.

I will keep you updated on my painting progress.  Do you have any painting tips to share?
