Are there any tricks to painting windows, doors, and trim?

This may not be art, but painting with patience will give you better results.

When painting windows, doors and trims – generally, use more delicate strokes with less paint on the brush when painting for those tiny details.

Windows – Mask off the glass panes. Use a small trim brush to paint the dividers from top to bottom. Paint the window surround areas next. Then use an angled trim brush to paint the face trim around the window.

Siding Trim – Paint trim from the top down. Use the largest brush that fits the trim you’re painting.

Take care that paint doesn’t “glob” or drip as you work in crevices and joints.

Doors – If the door has raised inset panels, paint those first. Then paint the door surface surrounding the panels.
