There’s something about a fresh coat of paint that makes you feel like you’re walking into a brand new home all over again, but there’s a lot of prep work to finish before you put your paint roller in that new hue. Bob Vila enlists the help of a Hyde Tools 17-in-1 Painter’s Tool to make the process go as smooth as possible — with as few tools as possible.
From wall preparation to tool cleanup, Bob tackles all of these tasks (and more) with the multi-tool:
- Extracting nails from the wall
- Removing light switch outlets
- Spreading spackling compound over holes
- Opening paint cans
- Cleaning paint roller covers
