The Peeling Paint That I Love! {Tips}

Have you guys seen this??  There are Teflon coated paint trays now!  I saw this at Lowe's the other day and couldn't believe it!  No more liners? No more scrubbing?  I don't know about you,but I hate cleaning out a paint tray, and I also hate to keep buying liners to through away.  I am forever stuck wanting to start a painting project and not having a new liner. I don't know, maybe I'm behind the times, maybe these have been out for years.  But I hadn't seen them, and I was excited! So, I had to buy one (they only run about $6 by Shur-Line).

I worked on my project, then dumped the unused paint back in the paint gallon, and let the paint tray sit out until it was dry.  By the next day everything was dry.  I peeled back a corner and....

Just pulled it off!

Good bye old paint!

Hello clean pan! 

I think I'm more excited than the 1950's housewife who got her first teflon baking dish! Of course I use these pans more than the ones in the kitchen! : )


  1. I haven't seen these either! So much easier, I'll have to get one before my next painting project!

    Thank you for sharing!


  2. Never saw these before...but if you have old paint trays cover with foil...when done painting peel off foil and trash it.

  3. Thanks Erin! That's a great thought. I had tried using a plastic bag as a liner once and that was a big FAIL! : )

  4. This is great! I love it and can't wait to try it! Thanks so much for linking up to Tuesday Talent Show! I would love to have you stop by and link up again with more great projects!

  5. Thank you for sharing this interesting and informative article, painting with airless spray gun will be faster and more interesting!
