This trick might be common knowledge – who knows, and maybe I am not the only one who always buys disposable paint trays – ALWAYS
I hate washing out brushes and really hate washing out roller trays so I almost always buy the disposable inserts.
Then I ran out of money. $8 for inserts… that’s like two weeks worth of sonic happy hour
So I got creative. Enter tinfoil. Again, this might be common knowledge.
Tin foil lined paint trays ACTUALLY work! I thought there had to be a reason I hadn't heard of this before and maybe that’s because it didn’t work, but not so… IT DOES!
I foil lined my paint stained roller tray and used it the entire time I painted a very large piece of furniture. Not once did it move, tear, stick to my roller – nothing.
After I was done I simply rolled it up and threw it away.
Badda bing badda boom!
Not only did this save time but it saved some hassle too. Now lets think of a way to never ever have to wash paint brushes, ideas that don’t include throwing away expensive paint brushes
