Painting Tip

Gotta paint the bathroom, kitchen, or bedroom? If you have an airbrush, use it to cut-in: just get a can of compressed air and hook it to your airbrush. It's faster and easier than a brush or mini roller, with no mess. You can tape off around doors and windows and fixtures or use a piece of cardboard to prevent overspray. It allows easy touch-up as well. All this with no brush marks, drips, or runs, and it's quicker, too. Oh yeah — it's great for stencils, too (duh).
