I hope Santa was good to everyone this year.  Honestly i'm glad the holiday season is now in the past.  Now everything can go back to normal again.  Well as normal my life ever is anyway lol.  

I'm curious ... what is your tool of choice?  Do you use a brush, roller or paint sprayer?  I was using a compressor and a high velocity paint sprayer - nothing fancy just a $70 sprayer from Princess Auto.  I have already been through 3 of them.  I loved it when it was brand new and working great but for some reason this gun didn't totally come apart and because of that it was really hard to clean out the clear coat after spraying it and it started to clog.  But this year Santa (a.k.a Kevin) got me the bestest present ever!  Introducing the Graco True Coat Pro - professional handheld cordless airless paint sprayer.  I actually found it used on kijiji, it was used only one time but we saved $100 so we were happy :)

I have used it twice now and it is amazing.  You don't have to thin the paint so you only need to spray on one coat...yes i said ONE!  And this is probably more exciting for me because i am the clumsiest person in the world but it is CORDLESS!  So, no tripping over cords, no cords hitting your freshly painted projects - its very cool and i LOVE LOVE LOVE it!

Here is the link if you want more info on this amazing sprayer

I brush or roll and store it in a sandwich bag. Once they wear out I toss them away. Haven't washed a brush or roller in years. This may sound naive, but are you able to avoid clogging your drains with a sprayer?

I love your blog! ... and the name of it is right up my alley. If the blog world had streets, I think we'd be in the same neighborhood!
Have a great week!
