Over the years I have done a multitude of paint projects from walls, to trim and doors. It’s my favorite low cost way to make a large impact on your home aesthetic. No matter what I’m tackling, I always want to make things easier on myself while still achieving a professional look finish. Here are all my favorite tools that help me get the job done:
- Handy Paint Cup. This cup is the best for painting trim and cutting in. It fits in the palm of your hand and has a magnet to hold your brush!
- Wooster Shortcut. This brush is my favorite! Perfect for cutting in – especially in tight corners.
- Whizz Foam Rollers. I love these for when I don’t want to get out my paint sprayer but still want a smooth finish. I’ve used these on countless doors and cabinets.
- Long Arm Extendable Roller. If you’re not using an extendable paint roller, what are you even doing? I used to climb up and down a step stool while painting walls and now I just extend the roller and paint comfortably from the floor.
- Purdy White Dove Roller Covers. Love these for painting walls and ceilings.
- Graco True Coat Airless Sprayer. Where do I begin with this? If you want a professional sprayed finish on doors, trim, etc. and you want to save time getting there, you need a paint sprayer. This one is easy to operate and easy to clean up.
- Red Devil 6-in1 Tool. Clean your rollers, open your paint cans and more with this multitool.
- Scotch Blue Painters Tape. When I need to tape areas off, I use this stuff. It holds well and comes off clean.
- TSP Substitute. This is my go-to for cleaning trim and doors before painting. It gets off any oily or sticky residue so my primer adheres really well.
- Microfiber Cloths. Another cleaning tool. Perfect for getting in trim grooves, or getting paint residue drops off laminate floors – oops.
