Where are all those illegal emigrants when you need them.

you need 2 tools for an easy painting job - the roller carries lotsa paint so use it to go from the bucket to the project. (doors, cabinets, walls, furniture, anything.) and if you insist on graining the fresh paint so it looks brushed, drag a flatting brush across it. do not get fooled into thinking brushes are for dipping and carrying paint - they sure wouldn't look like that if they were! and don't try to dip outa the can!

if it's a really small job, tie a good plastic grocery bag over a paint tray (to keep the tray clean/dry) dump some in and when you're done, strip the bag off, use it to grab the roller cover, pull it off and toss them both.

we used to set up a 5-gallon bucket and grid even for small jobs but then we had a parade of thinner pails, brush spinners and all the shortcut stuff.

Deadcarp, you weren't talking to me but I over heard. That trash baggy thingy is a good one. Stupid old me has been buying tray liners and still making a mess of the tray. :(

Bought one of those paint stick aplicators. Sure makes quick work of a room.
