ROLLER

Rollers cover large

sur­faces quickly and elim­i­nate streaks brushes leave. Look for a roller cover with a short nap (about ¼ inch) for paint­ing smooth sur­faces like cab­i­nets

and doors. A frame that locks the cover in place will pre­vent slip­ping. Try the Shur-Line 8609L 9-inch Easy-Re­lease Paint Roller Frame, $10;

BRUSHES

Use a 3-inch flat brush to coat flat sur­faces like cab­i­net

doors. A 1- or 21/2-inch an­gled sash brush gets into cor­ners, nooks, and cran­nies. Try Wooster brushes,

from $4; woost­er­brush.com.

POWER SAN­DER

A small hand­held

san­der makes quick work of paint prep. Con­sider one like Black & Decker’s ¼ Sheet Fin­ish­ing San­der, which works on plas­tic, wood, and metal sur­faces. $25;
