Painting is one of the crucial tasks of any work space or area. It enhances the overall appearance of the places. Commercial places also need such appearances to maintain the decorum of the place. In most of the cases, painting goes wrong and thus ruins the overall view of the place.

Painting furniture keeps it safe and increases the life span of furniture. Painting furniture at the commercial places after a long time is a good idea. But heavy objects make painting hard as it may lead to the marks of paint on the floor. Then it requires more work to remove those marks.
Thus, to overcome this problem use nails or bed raisers to raise them above from ground which will facilitates our work in painting.
Separate Cases to hold the Painting Brushes and Paints
Generally, we apply two to three paints for better appearance of the given space. Often two different colors mix with each other and give different odd color which ruins the monotony of the existing colors. Also, paint brushes from one container to other lead to the mixing of colors.
Thus, we need to hold our paints and paint brushes in different cases which will not create problem in painting a particular color.
Apply Vaseline to Places where you don’t want to Paint
Vaseline is well known for its water repellent properties. It also helps in preventing small areas where we don’t want to paint. Such areas can be screws or nuts on furniture and can be anything on the wall where we don’t want any paint.
Thus, applying Vaseline will make your work so easy in avoiding small areas of your panting work.
Preventing Hardening of Paint Brush
Leaving a paint brush for a long time makes it hard. It will be more difficult to use it for painting since strands of brush get stick to each other. We can use a single paint brush many times for painting.
To maintain the flexibility of paint brush first wash it properly. Moreover, cover it with plastic to avoid hardening of paint brush.
Use Plastic Bags to save objects from Paints
Commercial places often consist of furniture like tables and chairs. Painting an area having such furniture creates problem since drops of paints can ruin it.
Thus, to avoid this we can use plastic or simply plastic bags to cover the furniture safely. This will prevent the furniture from the marks of paints. Also, it is one of the money saving and effective method to save furniture instead of shifting it at various places.

This will help in removing excess paint from the brush.

Painter’s tape is one of the best tool which prevents paint from the undesirable areas. For example, you want to paint in a straight line along the window. Then you can use painter’s tape to avoid paint at undesirable places. Also, using painter’s tape in a straight line gives you sense of direction. After peeling off that tape will yield straight line paint along the edges.
Now, the hack of painter’s tape is to remove it soon after the paint dries. It will avoid sticking of paint on the tape.

Many times painting leaves brushes rough and sticky. To clean the brushes and to soften them, we can soak them in the vinegar for 30 minutes.
