When painting your door or trim, the most challenging part is always the corners. You might ask yourself how the pros ever get that straight line on the sides and corners. The answer is simple – lots of experience. Well, obviously, most homeowners don’t have that kind of experience. But there are a few secrets that can help you paint corners like a pro.
Good Housekeeping shares a step-by-step guide to how to paint corners like a pro. There are actually two ways you can do this – the first method involves using tape and the second one just uses your own steady hands. If you choose the first method, you should be sure to buy a superior brand of blue or green crepe painter’s tape and not tan masking tape. If you choose the second method and use no tape, then make sure you also use a high-quality paint brush suitable for the type of paint you use.
