But … I admit to being a little lazy (and sloppy) when it comes to painting. I love anything that speeds up the process of painting furniture or accessories or walls — ugh, have yet to find a way to speed up wall painting, unfortunately.
So, today I’m going to share the DIY secret that is … dry-brushing.
I’ve talked about this a few times before, in passing, but it really deserves more. Dry-brushing is exactly what it sounds like: painting something with a dry-ish brush that has hardly any paint on it.
Wait, that makes it sound like it would make the painting process longer, doesn’t it? Less paint on the brush equals more time and effort to cover the thing with paint? That’s why dry-brushing is sneaky.
I really need to paint more. You are such an inspiration! 🙂
Aww, thank you, Gina! And yes, you should! A nice easy paint like Fusion Mineral Paint makes it a fast job, especially if you’re just dry-brushing. There’s a gorgeous navy (Midnight Blue) that I bet your boys would really like.
