Painting Tip

No, not a cooking post.

But a good one nevertheless.


DD and I worked on painting the deck today. I despise painting a deck. I so wish the original owners if this house had NEVER painted the back deck and rails.

However, I digress…

To easily paint railings do the following:

Find a long thin sponge that will go around the entire rail. I bought a fat sponge and cut it in thirds lengthwise

Put on plastic gloves. We even wrapped DDs arms in plastic wrap!


Dip sponge into paint soaking it pretty well.

Squeeze out

Wrap around the top of the rail

Use both hands and pull sponge down the entire length of the rail

This saves soooooo much time

And turns out great!
