- High quality paint means fewer coats. Sometimes another coat of paint doesn’t seem like that big of a deal. But think about drying time too, how much is your time worth? I love the fact that Laney’s Old Village Paints often only need one coat- ONE COAT!
- Preparation is 50% of the job. Cleaning the surface you are going to paint is invaluable. Often, people skip this step. But you need a clean surface so that the paint adheres to the surface, and not to a layer of dirt! Putting down a drop cloth and purchasing/using a nice brush that won’t spread bristles all through your job are also key parts of preparation.
- A smaller carrying can for paint can make the job go faster. I interviewed a professional painted who always transferred a few cups of paint into a plastic cup when he was painting with a brush. He said it made it much easier to carry, especially when climbing up and down a ladder. He was right! This is one of my favorite time savers.

I have lived a long time and am convinced that God governs in the affairs of men. If a sparrow cannot fall to the ground without His notice, is it probable that an empire can rise without His aid? I move that prayer imploring the assistance of Heaven be held every morning before we proceed to business.- Benjamin Franklin
