If you're getting ready to put your home on the market this spring, then you've probably looked around and noticed that you have some work to do get it in tip-top condition.  One thing I've noticed in my own house is LOTS of nicks, dings, and nail holes that need to be patched and touched up before we move.  Because we have light-colored paint, those marks seem even more noticeable.  The good news is that with my PaintStick EZ Twist, refreshing the walls takes just minutes!

Step 1

First, gather your supplies.

Step 2

Use lightweight spackle to fill any nail holes or gouges in the walls and allow it to dry.

Step 3

Sand with fine grit sandpaper to remove excess spackle and smooth the wall's surface.

Step 4

Insert the fill tube into your can of paint; it clips on the side and will work with a 1-gallon or 5-gallon can.

Step 5

Attach the PaintStick to the fill tube and pull back on the handle to draw paint into the barrel. 

Step 6

Freshen up your walls quickly and easily with the PaintStick--it only takes a few minutes!  Clean up is a snap, just rinse with warm water.  I'll admit that I usually discard my roller cover and use a fresh one every time, but I do that any time I'm using a roller.  Replacement covers are {here}.

Step 7

Now, enjoy how fresh and clean your walls look.  Wasn't that easy?!
