Coming in the next two weeks, the job I hate most...painting the house. Well, it's not the painting i really hate, but the prep work (taping, draping, moving furniture, etc) and the cleanup. A couple questions. First, has anyone used those trim pads that they sell for window/baseboard trim and cutting in? Do they really speed things up or does the finished work look like shit? Is the best way to cut into corners or finish trim still with a good old-fasioned sash brush? Also, I haven't painted these walls in about eight years and some areas could be dusty. Should I scrub them down first? If so, what's the best way to do it without having dirty water everywhere...just a big sponge and a bucket of TSP?
