    These are spot on, Julia! I’ve been painting for years and this post was still really helpful for me! If I’m painting for multiple days, sometimes I wrap up my paintbrush tightly in a plastic bag and store it in the fridge overnight instead of cleaning it every single day.

  2. I LOVE ALL OF THESE TIPS! I JUST GOT A HOMERIGHT SPRAYER AND USED IT FOR THE FIRST TIME!!! IT WAS AMAZING AND I CAN’T BELIEVE I HAVEN’T USED ONE BEFORE NOW!

  3. You are the BOMB!
    Always so much useful info.

    I totally àgree with all you said. Well, since I don’t have a sprayer (wish I did), I just can not say. I would love to have one like yours!

  5. great tips! I’ll have to try the one about roller cleaning. I’m ashamed to admit that I’ve taken to just throwing them out after we use them because I hate cleaning them so much.

    1. Squeeze out as much paint as you can, then throw in the washer! I estimate this actually uses less water than wa shingles by hand and they come out pristine.

    Love these tips!!! My husband is a fanatic when it comes to cleaning paint brushes/rollers, so I’ll have to try the water in the glass trick. Love the ceiling too!!!

  7. Great ideas! Some I never heard of before, but definitely would never have thought of myself. Thanks. Also, LOVING the new direction of the powder room.

    This post came at a really great time, my husband and I are doing a lot of painting to get our house ready to sell. Great tips, thank you!

  9. Love these ideas – I think my favorite is the idea to use soup containers. I’ve been thinking about doing something like that in each of the rooms in our house for each touch ups – may have to try this.

    1. You have to develop a soup addiction too for all the containers 😉
