Don’t cheap out on paint and brushes. Cheap brushes are false economy. Buy a Wooster or something with some heft. That $3 plastic brush is going make it look like you smeared paint on the wall with a rake. And the bristles fall out. We like a nice 2-1/2-inch angled brush. It’s versatile and you can wash and reuse it until the bristles wear down to a nub. And, as on many projects we do, get the most expensive paint, too. How come? Because it will go on easy and offer the absolute best coverage. It’ll also last a long time. You’ll be able to wash a grubby fingerprint off the wall without taking the paint with it. And your entire job will just go quicker and easier. We love working, and educating our clients on the painting process.
