awesome tips shelley! i have a purdy paint brush and i love it!!
Thanks for this! We have a "dungeon" with brown trip everywhere and brown windows, I know painting it will transform the room. I'll be sure to follow these tips.
I LOVE that you gave a Shout-Out to the Purdy brushes! Amazing. I dont even have to use painters tape anymore, because those angled brushes are AH-MAZING! I cut straight lines with them… first shot! Not bragging or anything. 😉
Funny, I just painted our basement bedroom and now need to do the doors and trim. Would you do the doors the same sheen/paint as the trim?
I too found out how amazing purdy brushes are and I won't go back. Ny question is do you suggest painting the trim before you nail it to the wall or once its up?
great tips! I am guily of the 3 million touch ups before it is dry… I will paint and walk away – my new mantra… maybe I need to print it on a tee shirt or something 🙂

These are tips that I always tell people, we think alike! I don't care if a brush is $100, it makes ALL the difference. For someone who feels like a paintbrush is a natural extension of my hand, high quality materials are a must. Great post!
Thank you so much.. I am working up my courage to paint the trim in my family room which has crown molding, chair rail, 5 windows , french door,aentry/exit door and baseboard. thats a lotta molding:)
I'll be going out to get the brushes you suggested.
Many thanks for the great advice! Too many times I've spoilt a paint project with cheap brushes that shed hairs grr!
Thank you for sharing this!!!
You are a crazy, driven, awesome gal! I just wanted to let you know that I put a link in my post today for your fabric flower tutorial. I hope that's ok! Thank you!
Awesome tips. Now how do you do the bottom parts of the trim by the carpet? We are trying to figure how to paint them without getting it on the carpet. Any suggestions?! 🙂 thanks!
Adding a paint leveler like Floetrol or X-I-M also makes painting moldings so much easier. It's like adding a little bit of magic to your trim paint because you can work with it so much longer. Great advice — especially the part of Purdy brushes!
I LOVE your blog!!!
You are soooo right about good brushes. I learned that the hard way. Just last week I saw a Purdy angler on sale at Lowe's, and my daughter practically cackled at how fast I jumped on it. I couldn't help it; it was 5 bucks O_o!
