After hearing from several of you that you’re planning to paint/remodel a bathroom in the near future, I wanted to share this brilliant idea that I found on The Family Handyman on how to paint that pesky area behind the toilet.
Because no way was I about to uninstall our toilet, paint the area behind it, and then reinstall it.
And if I hadn’t found a way to paint behind it, I’m the type of person that being able to see a little bit of remaining white paint poking out behind the toilet would drive me nuts.
Anyway, all you need in preparation is:
-A paint stir stick
-A flat paint edger brush (if you have no clue what I’m talking about here is a link…you don’t need the handle, just by the replacement brush/pad that goes with it)
-And adhesive putty or glue
All you have to do is glue the paint stir stick to the flat edger brush/pad and let it dry. Once you get to where you’re ready to paint the area behind the toilet…your brush is ready to go and the paint stir stick will allow you to reach the entire area! NOTE – you may want to cover your toilet with plastic so you don’t get paint on it…but I figured no one would see the paint so I skipped that step. 😉
Oh and another thing I learned…don’t paint your nails the night before you want to paint your bathroom…
Haha…such trivial problems, right?!
