A couple of tips I forgot to mention:
1) I wash &save the Styrofoam trays that meat comes in for small paint jobs. Such easy clean up. When finished just throw away the tray.

2) I use disposable paint rollers, but hate to use a new one if I have to second coat a room the next day. Just place the roller, handle and all, into a plastic bag. Wrap the end of the bag tightly around the handle and store in the refrigerator. Works like a charm.

A top quality brush (Purdy, Wooster) will allow you to get a straight line; you do need a "steady" hand, but the brushes are key. Also, not putting too much paint on the brush is critical. In my opinion Frog Tape is the best - no paint gets under tape.. again, not having too much paint on the brush when painting over the tape is the key to success. I haven't used the brush cover, but routinely wrap stretch tite around the brush to save it for the next day. It works very well. Take the author's advice and buy top quality products -brushes, rollers, paint. It makes a big difference.
