I love painting walls and decorating – it’s the way that paint can change the whole look of a room or item of furniture so quickly – but I hate clearing away after doing so.
Luckily over the years I have worked out a quick and easy way to save 100% of the time usually spent cleaning the paint tray – and I wanted to share it with you today.
My solution is very simple really – but very effective! – to ensure you no longer need to clean the paint tray you just have to cover it.
I have tried a variety of ways to do this but have found that the best way is as follows:-
1. Wrap a plastic bag around the tray (so that it sort of sits inside the bag)
2. Add a layer of foil on top of the tray and bag and squeeze it around the edge of the tray so that it stays neatly in place.
After I finish decorating I can simply fold the foil in on itself, and then take the plastic bag off so that it wraps around the foil – and then everything can be disposed of neatly.
I hope that this helps you when you next have to decorate or paint something, and that the time you save can be used for something a lot more interesting instead!
