When you’re using your paint brush on a piece of furniture, here’s a great way to store it until you apply the next coat.  Simply wrap a plastic grocery bag tightly over the wet bristles of your brush, and twist it air tight all the way down around the handle. 

Your brush can then be on “stand by” for when you need to use it again.  If your painting space isn’t too warm, your brush can be stored this way for up to a couple of days.  If I anticipate storing it this way overnight, I simply run a very small amount of water over the bristles to keep the paint extra moist.

By storing your brush, you preserve it for later use, and save time from having to wash it between coats!
