Finish Your Painting Projects Without Sacrificing Your Free Time

With a little planning, you can complete your painting projects faster than ever, without sacrificing all of your free time.

The first step is to get organized.
Buy all your painting materials before the weekend, so that when it's time to get started, you won't waste time tracking down supplies.
Your checklist should include paint applicators, a drop cloth, stepladder, screwdriver for removing hooks, switch plates and the like, masking tape for window edges, and of course, enough paint to complete the project.

Shortcut your painting prep by spreading it out over a couple of evenings, or do it the weekend before painting. Carve out manageable bits of time to do the routine tasks such as patching and filling holes, removing grease or crayon marks -- even removing cobwebs from corners and ceilings.

If your wall surfaces have mildew on them, try removing it using one part bleach in three parts water and then rinsing. Let everything sit for a couple days, so you're ready to dive in and paint on the big day.

Some projects require more diligent treatment of surfaces. If you need to remove wallpaper, there are several power prep tools that can save time and elbow grease.

For example power wallpaper steamers in a variety of styles and sizes that can provide a fast, clean way to remove the paper without having to use chemicals, solvents or detergents.

When it's time to start painting, consider using some of the newer products on the market that are designed to give fast, professional-looking results, such as electric paint rollers.

After your painting project is complete, clean up can be quicker than ever, too. Try rubbing protective cream onto your hands before you paint -- it'll ensure faster and easier removal of paint from your skin.
For cleaning your tools, follow the manufcaturers instructions.

When your painting is complete and your tools have been tucked away for the next project, there's just one final task. Pack up your family and head for the beach -- it's the perfect place to relax while you're waiting for the paint to dry.
