    Did you get your brushes back in one piece!!!?????

    My DH painted for a living when he was younger and one tip he gave me when painting edges like you showed is to only load the inside part of your brush so the brush area that is touching moulding or ceiling does not have paint on it just the under side. (does that even make sense??)

    Mary Ellen- Oh yes, that’s a good tip which I will try next time…although after awhile painting I’m sure the other side of my brush would end up with paint on it. :-)

    Yup, yup, yup! No more taping for me either. I do the exact same technique and it works beautifully and quickly every time. ….ok except that I love super white trim on almost every single trim spot there is so I paint the trim first and actually bring the white onto the wall a little. Then I go back in with the wall color right up to the corner where the trim meets the wall. It’s easier for me to do it that way because I lean toward bright vibrant colors or dark ones…my living room is dark chocolate brown with bright white trim….and going over any over painting of the darker color with white would take 6 zillion coats to cover properly.

    Try it it works wonders.

    I’m curious what brand of brushes you like best.

      I’m not brand-loyal, Tonya, so I just try to choose something that doesn’t make me feel sick at the price (for a PAINT brush…). :) I try to choose a good quality angled brush in the middle-of-the-road price range – about $7-10. In my experience, they do fine and I don’t have to be sick all over again when they get unusable -’cause they all do eventually!
