Lisa: Tools of the Week

Contractor Series Mini-Roller

Meredith was not kidding, this little roller is a life-changer. It completely eliminates cutting in with a brush, and makes small areas a breeze. I'll never paint without one again.

HELMER Drawer Unit

By far the most impressively designed and packed piece of IKEA furniture I have ever purchased. A pleasure to build (yeah, I said it) and a handy little set of drawers, too.

Aren't the rollers the best? I haven't painted without one since I discovered them.

And, I probably need about 10 of the drawer unit all over my house. Exceptional for stashing.

Thank you for posting this! I painted my bathroom this morning and had to make a quick trip to Home Depot because I ran out of paint (WAY underestimated the amount I needed) and I saw those rollers there and thought I would try them because of your post. They are the best! Way better than my previous method. Now do you have any suggestions for avoiding the inevitable peelage that happens whenever I pull the tape off? Do you de-tape while the paint is still kind of wet or wait until it is completely dry? I have tried everything. It is so frustrating!
