The Importance of Painting Tools

It’s important to have everything set out and ready for use before actually starting a painting project. Imagine having to lose your momentum when you stop and realize you don’t have items X, Y, or Z on hand. Even the “smaller” more seemingly inconsequential items like rags and newspapers are equally important! Take it from me. I painted an accent wall in our master’s bedroom but was too lazy to lay out newspapers on the floor. After I was done painting the wall, I spent the rest of the night toiling away on the floors trying to get the paint out of my mom’s vinyl floors. It was not a nice way to end the day.
