Brushing up

I spent all day yesterday touching up the main floor painting.
Climb up ladder, paint, climb down, scoot ladder five feet. Repeat.

For six hours.

Paint trays at the end of the day

I like to have a pack of 1/2-inch flat stencil brushes on hand. I buy them in the wallpaper stenciling department at Menards.

They're obviously smaller than a regular brush and have firmer bristles, making it easier to deftly paint tight areas.

They were the perfect size to paint around the scalloped edge of the moulding over the doors and windows.

Here's a primer on paint brush types in a slideshow format from This Old House. They even make one for painting radiators.
