As careful and neat as you try to be, doesn’t it always seem that when painting a room, you end up with rough looking edges?:
You take such care in using the best tape to try to get a nice, straight even edge without the paint bleeding through. But most of the time, it still comes out with edges like this:
So my husband and I thought of an idea to clean up those bad edges. We used a bead of silicone to run along the trim edge:
Doesn’t the edge look so much better now? A nice clean, straight edge:
Just a couple tips to remember:
* Use a silicone in a color that matches your trim well and will blend in. There are many different shades and tints on the market today.
* I would not use a shiny silicone for the job. A flat or matte finish would be best. If the line is too shiny, that will call attention to it which you do not want.
You just want to look at a pretty window without the distraction of badly painted edges!
A good idea? What do you think?
