This soap is great for getting out dried up paint on your paint brushes! I tried it on some brushes I accidentally left in a bucket of paint and they were caked with dried up paint and really stiff. I soaked them in a cup of pure undiluted Murphy Oil soap and after a little bit of manipulation they came out looking almost brand new! Saved me a lot of money replacing the premium brushes I almost ruined!
I picked these up at Lowe’s and I am glad I did, they really help to paint the sides of whatever it is you want to paint by elevating it.
I am painting a piece of board that I am going to mount my antique paper cutter on so I can move it around whenever I need to.
I am going to paint my front door today! I finished all the prep work yesterday and bought the paint, which is a dark turquoise color, and I am removing the hardware right now. It has been red for about 10 years now and I saw some beautiful aqua blue pots at Lowe’s and it inspired me to go ahead and paint the door to match the pots. I told you I have ADD!
This great tutorial from the DIY network is very helpful, I have always left the door on the hinges while painting but it is so easy to take it down. That makes it a lot easier to paint and keeps it from hitting the door frame before the paint dries.
I love this magazine, The Family Handyman. This month they have an article about ways to save time when painting a room, some I have never heard of and I paint a lot. It is more than worth the subscription cost and I am always going back to old issues when doing projects.
