About once a week, one of my neighbors calls out to me, “What’cha painting now?” It’s usually a good question, because I’m always up to something.
Last week, that something was tackling one of the last remaining builder’s beige walls in my home.
As a HomeRight Brand Ambassador, I have the opportunity to test out their products. Before I got started on this little hallway, I went on their website in search for something that would make painting this area a lot easier.
But then, I found this little gem – the HomeRight Quick Painter Edge Painter (Amazon affiliate link). Much like HomeRight’s other products that I now can’t live without (the PaintStick EZ Twist and the PaintStick Mini), this little painter holds the paint in the handle to keep you from breaking your back by constantly bending over the paint can.
Now, I have tried other edge painters like this that didn’t live up to the hype. But, this one does. Why? Because instead of the painting pad being made up of flat, woven fiber, this one has replaceable pads made of teeny tiny bristles. It paints a lot more like a paint brush than other edgers I have tried.
The first time I used it, I made a HUGE mess…because I didn’t read the directions. Do not – I repeat, DO NOT – pull the trigger unless your Quick Painter pad is flat against the wall. Otherwise, you’ll have paint dripping down your arm and a paint covered tool.
But once I learned from that mistake, I was able to paint that pain in the rear space with ease. I used the Quick Painter to paint around the door trim, baseboards, cut in at the ceiling and any little PITA sections of wall that I couldn’t fit my roller.
Then, I finished off the painting by rolling the walls with my EZ Twist Paint Stick (Amazon affiliate link). It honestly took me longer to tape off all the trim than it did to paint the walls.
The result? Well, it’s bright. It’s SO bright. I’ll even say its regrettably bright. We’re going to talk about this color again in a few weeks. At least the paint job itself turned out great!
How much do you hate that spot between the door trim and wall? Have you tried the HomeRight Quick Painter?
