The other day when I put the picture of my newly painted bedroom (corner)
Mrs Chic made a comment:
I like it! It turned out nice - those chairs look perfect in your bedroom.
BTW - you paint well, no paint marks on the ceiling!
My favorite part was when she said you paint well, no paint on the ceilings...
Well Mrs. Chic....I don't paint THAT well! I actually just go in a room and paint! I don't cut in first or anything (please don't shake your head at me). What I do is paint majority of the wall/walls and then go back and cut in. Before I cut in, I tape off the ceiling and baseboards. After I peel off the tape, I usually get something like this
and that's when I pull out my trusty "touch-up" brush
add a little paint
and the spot is gone! (please excuse the textured ceiling!)
same thing with the side of the doors
Can you see how the trim paint is on the wall? My little brush fixed that too!
This brush is actually part of a pack of brushes found at Hobby Lobby. I think the pack is $7.99, but I paid $1.99 because someone opened it (thanks person who opened the pack, but didn't take anything!). And I know you guys see that brown spot on the floor under the chair right?
Well that was my way of insisting that we get new carpet in the bedroom, but my husband said "Why don't you ask your blog friends how to cover that up!" Please don't comment on that remark!!!
So there you have it! My "messy" little painting secret! I'm pretty sure that you guys are great painters so please don't be too mean in the comments;)
