… well, not quite prime time, but that dreaded stairway of ours is ready for a good primer. And you thought this post was going to be thrilling, didn’t you? Paint PrimerWe all know mundane painting is a favorite past time in the Rebori/Simmons household. NOT.

Alas, it needed to be done. ↓ Paint Primer 2And while my wonderful, sweet (a few compliments never hurt anyone) husband was hard at work on the trim and the doors, I decided to offer some moral support. Paint Primer 3A job I’d like to think I excel at – that and listening to your husband when he tells you not to lean against the freshly painted bannister. ↓  2015-04-18 14.10.36-1Thankfully said husband and Goo Off were there to save the day.

I’m telling you if you need to get paint out of your clothes, this stuff works like a charm (not a paid advertisement, just telling you what I know. 🙂 ). Getting Paint of ClothesAfter that little diversion, Jeff (I decided to stay out of his way) got back to work priming away. The end.

See, it’s not everyday you learn a DIY trick for a product you probably never knew you needed.

As always, happy to help!
