Painting Trim Easily and With Less Touch Ups

Although everyone loves the style and impression of painted trim, it can be very frustrating to recreate on your own if you are not a professional painter. Sometimes the most crucial issue when painting with this method is ensuring that all of your lines are painted evenly. It is generally easier to paint the sides of your trim first. If you were to paint the front of the trim before painting the sides, it would create noticeable gaps of missing paint between your trim and the wall. Painting the sides first means that when you paint the front of the trim, the paint will overlap on the sides to create a more even result. The touch-ups with this method are quick, easy, and minimal compared to results from masking the wall first. The angle of the brush will allow you to apply paint into those tight corners that exist between the wall and the trim. If you are using similar colors to paint the walls and trim, you can easily clean up wet paint splatters on dry areas with a small towel.

The Right Brushes Produce The Right Results

 

In order to get the best results from your painting experience, it is essential to have the proper tools. For this project, it can be very useful to have an assortment of quality brushes. Focusing on painting all of the small details and unique shapes of your trim will be easier if you use an angled brush. Invest in a few angled brushes of different sizes so that you can ensure that you can paint every area correctly without the risk of missing a spot or painting over your wall. The different sizes of these brushes will ensure that you can apply the paint with more precision. Although it is crucial to have a steady hand when you are painting without masking tape, the process is much easier if you have different brushes that allow you to specifically direct the location and amount of paint that is being applied to the trim.

If you have any questions about the brushes that you should use for various painting projects within your home, you can get more information by asking one of the representatives at your local home improvement store or at the art supply store. They will be able to provide you with all of the necessary insight for gaining the best results for your painting endeavors.
