2. Always get the stubby brush
The type of brush you use when painting actually makes a huge difference.The cheap ones don’t give you a smooth finish, plus they shed like mad and leave behind bristles as you paint. I’ve tried pretty much every brush out there and my absolute favorite is this one by Wooster. There is something about the stubby handle that makes using it incredibly easy. The angle is perfect for cutting in and the bristles are good quality. It’s the only brush I buy now (unless I’m using an oil based product, then I use disposable foam brushes). Also, it’s great for getting into tight spaces, like when you paint furniture.
