Who knew painting a window could be so easy?!
Do you have an old window or door maybe that has been needing a coat of paint for a while, but you just can’t bring yourself to take on all of that taping? Boy, have I got news for you…
The Easiest Way to Paint a Window!
I must admit, painting is not my favorite thing to do. Which is probably true for most of you I’m sure.
Don’t get me wrong, I LOVE the transformative powers of paint. In fact, whether it’s a piece of furniture, a room, or even a simple jar, I’m pretty much in awe each and every time I use it!
I really dislike how boring and monotonous painting can be. And, more than anything, I hate, hate, hate the tedious prep work that inevitably comes with painting.
I absolutely dread the careful edging and taping.
When I make up my mind to do something, I want it done yesterday.
At least when I’m slapping the paint onto something I can see progress happening, but with taping, all I can think about is all of the time I’m wasting for something I’m just going to rip off again anyway.
Which is why I cannot flippin’ believe it took me SO long to think of this simple little trick! For all of the windows I’ve painted (see them all here), just think of all of the time I could have saved with this one little tip…
Just don’t bother!
That’s right! Don’t waste your time taping off that window.
Did you know that paint scrapes off of glass with hardly any effort at all? I did, but somehow it’s taken me this long to clue in that I can use this to my advantage. I swear, a light bulb appeared right over my head with this one … with this $4 tool, I could skip the taping all together, paint away as if I had taped and then remove all of that extra, unwanted paint in a matter of seconds!
BRILLIANT, am I right?!
I finally tested out this theory with this Vintage Window Flower Box and it really did take me just seconds to scrape all of that extra paint off the glass. And honestly, it looked so much better than even my most careful taping jobs!
It literally just came off in long strips with one quick scrape! You can bet I’ll never, EVER waste my time taping another window again!
