DIY: Window Trim Painting Tricks

Family Handyman tip- Use mini blind slats for paint edging.

Old mini blinds are a great replacement for painters tape when you are doing quick painting touch ups. Use one slat at a time and switch out for a dry one on each new section.

I normally would use painter’s tape on the wall to protect it from getting any trim paint on it, but my brother-in-law who is a professional painter told me there is no reason to do that. All you need is a 1-1/2-inch stiff angled brush that are made to cut-in. I bought a Purdy one at Lowes.  It made a HUGE difference. The stiff bristles are very precision like and don’t splay out.

For painting trim, use a stiff angled brush instead of bothering with painter's tape. keep damp cloth handy to wipe up mistakes.
