Okay, I can't take credit for this one. My dad made this for me to make painting floor molding easier and faster to paint. It saves time and $$ on paint tape. Even though he's pretty handy around the house, I was skeptical but you know what it worked. He cut a rectangle shape piece from sheet metal he had lef tover in his garage. I think it's over a foot long.
He used white electrical tape to tape the end I would be holding to prevent cutting my hands. I tilted the sheet metal at a sharp angle then painted the molding on top. I had to hold it pretty tight against the bottom of the molding and I didn't get any paint on my carpet. Then you can flip over and paint the top of the molding and no white paint got on the wall either.
Genius. Thanks dad!
