Time to paint the house but been putting it off because you know how much time it takes, and you simply dread all those hours? Find yourself wishing you could just hire someone to come do it for you? This was me last spring, when our house was long overdue a new coat of paint, pretty much everywhere. My husband told me to get pricing from some local companies, but boy did they want a lot of money for the job. It was either I do it myself or forego the vacation we had planned for the summer, so you know which one I picked… I got busy scouring Pinterest in hopes of some expert painting advice that might make the job a little quicker and less stressful. Turns out, there are all kinds of painting secrets I had no idea existed. Not only house painting ideas, either. I found some cool and easy furniture painting tutorials as well. From ways to cut in trim and edging, how to get perfect baseboards, painters tape tips and tricks, to how to paint a ceiling properly, you will find solutions and hacks for all your painting needs here. Happy painting!
