Painting Ceilings The Easy Way

What can I say? Painting ceilings is a pain in the neck, literally. There’s no way around it….but, there are tools to make this project easier.

Over the summer, I painted the kitchen, living room, and hallway ceiling. This was my first time painting with the Homeright EZ PaintStick. I have to say I’m impressed with this tool.

Aside from having a stiff neck, ceiling painting is not a complex task, especially when you have the right tools. Of course, a huge part of a successful paint job is prep work. I filled in cracks and holes and lightly sanded, once the spackle dried.

A good, no mess ceiling paint like the ultra white in flat finish from Valspar, is what I used. Along with an edger and the Homeright PaintStick EZ-Twist.

The edger helps you with a straight line around your ceiling. This tool only costs a couple of bucks, but it’s pretty awesome. I was able to skip the painter’s tape. This saved me time and money.

This is the new tool I used. The EZ-Twist draws paint directly from the can and holds it in the handle, eliminating the need for a traditional roller tray. This will save you from the back-bending work of constantly going back and forth to refill on paint.

When you pull the handle, the paint is sucked trough the black piece inside the can.

The EZ-Twist paint stick provides 64 inches of reach without drips or mess. I’m short but I didn’t need a ladder. The shed resistant roller cover is an another great feature. It shields splatter so tarps aren’t necessary.

I’m glad I was able to do this project over the summer. Painting a ceiling “forces” you to remove cobwebs, dust and vacuum behind furniture, wash curtains and clean curtain rods. The house feels bright and clean.

Also, I’m glad I tried the Homeright EZ PaintStick. With this tool I was able to paint fast and mess free. You should consider getting one the next time you paint a ceiling or wall.

**I’ve received a Homeright EZ PaintStick for review. I was not compensated for this post. Just an honest review stating my own opinion.**
