Mother Nature can be fickle. You pray for a shower to water your gardens and wash your car, and she gives you a downpour of biblical proportions. All of that rain has to go somewhere.

However, it is possible to cut a few (very small) corners when painting walls and still make the task a relatively painless one and one that will give a professional looking finish.

Clearing the Room

When painting walls with a roller you may think that there’s little danger of paint ending up on any other surface than the walls. However, regardless of how careful you are, tiny splatter spots can still occur, especially if you use an inferior quality roller.
