It is essential to have the right tools if your goal is to do a stellar paint job. Before beginning, make sure the following items are on your list.
1. Aluminum work bench: A sturdy workbench can serve many purposes during painting projects; a ladder, a platform and a seat for time-out. Work benches are durable, lightweight, and can be easily folded and stored away.
2. Painter’s tape: When painting corners and edges, channel your inner-pro and get defined paint lines with a little high-quality painter’s tape. Apply it before painting to protect drywall, wood, metal, glass and trim.
3. Extension pole: Attach an extension pole to your roller will provide leverage and handle twice the painting with half the effort.
4. Application tools: You need a variety of paintbrushes and a few good rollers. Paired with quality paint, the right paint brush is crucial to attain a solid paint job. Having the right tools for a paint job will ensure success and reduce frustration.
