Painting trouble


Easiest way to cut the corners. I'm chassing my tail touching up. I have a nice cut brush, I don't over load the brush, But I still keep finding spots and over cuts. Can someone tell me how I can save myself some time and frustration?.. THANX

There are many ways to prevent painting areas that you don't want to paint!
You can tape the ares but it takes too much timr one of my favorites is to get drywall tape knife ( a plastic one works great ) and use it as a guide.

Save yourself some time and frustration, might want to try to tape the baseboards and trim. I was never good at taping tight, so I learned to utilize the brush more. That might be your best fix, learn the limitations of the brush you are using.

Painting is just like any other trade, you get good at it by experience. Nothing can replace that.

I'm no painter - but I do know trim. I usually pull all the trim and then paint wall and trim separately.. haha.
