Best Paint Supplies for 2020
# 1 Shur-Line Paint Edger Pro
If you have a hard time painting straight lines on the ceiling as I did, then grab this brush.
Before I found out about this tool, I would spend too much time adding tape to outline the ceiling and going back to paint over incorrect areas.
Finally, there was a painting tool that allowed me to cut my time in half.
Now I could cut corners between the ceiling and along the wall in no time.
If you are an amateur, then this is a non-negotiable paint tool!
# 2 Purdy XL Brush 3 Pack
If you are looking for a brush that offers clean lines even on narrow surfaces, then this is it. This brush allows me to paint the baseboard without tapping.
- The brush holds paint well, which is great because you don’t have to keep adding paint after every few strokes.
- The angled brush allows you to get into the corners.
- Great reusable paintbrush. We had ours for years because we clean it thoroughly after every use.
#3 ScotchBlue Table with Edge-Lock
I have tried many tape brands such as Frog tape and Duck tape, but this by far is still my favorite.
The tape you need must be able to handle multiple surfaces and deliver ultra-sharp paint lines.
True story, one time the tape that pulled the paint and drywall off the wall. OMG! talk about being upset.
#4 Scotch Masking Tape and Paper Dispenser
This is something I have to add to my shopping cart! I have not tried this, but the most tedious part of painting a room is the prepping part. If I can save myself time then I am here for it. There is a more expensive version here, but I will try this one first.
#5 Extension Poles
An extension pole is a must-have for painting ceiling or high walls. The great thing is you can screw it into all most any paint roller or edger. Having a poll extender a necessity in our home because I am not willing to many steps from the bottom of the ladder.
#6 Wagner PaintStick EZ-Twist Roller Applicator, Interior, Home Tool for Painting Walls and Ceilings, Holds Paint in Handle, Paint Roller, Paint Tool
If you really want to get fancy, then this roller applicator is a must-have.
Simply attach the PaintStick to the fill tube and draw up the paint like a syringe. The inner fed paint roller handle holds a good amount of paint, eliminating trays, drips, and mess.
