~ Brush & vacuum carpet / wipe down wood to ensure dust and hair (especially if you have PETS) is removed - especially from edges.
~ Cut in with angled brush - start at the top on one side, and work your way down. Come back up and repeat the process.
~ For railings, use the roller mostly, but cut in with angled brush for angles, corners, and railing groove.
Be real brave & bold, compliment your updated black railing with a beautiful printed wall paper...
Keep it simple and just paint railing and newel posts...
Keep it REALLY simple and paint only the railing...
Or screw the white - go black all the way with your rails!
IF you do happen to drip paint on a carpet: DO NOT SMEAR into the carpet. Wet a clean wash cloth and ring excess water into spot AND BLOT the spot. Eventually, the paint will lift. Afterwards, lightly criss-cross over carpet pile with (cleaned) cloth for blending.
Something different for closet door:
Clean off doors prior to painting. Fantastic works fantastic! =)
Paint raised panel with magnet paint.
