When it comes time to paint, so many people will head to their local big box hardware store and fill up on supplies. As far as paint, most products sold today are of much better quality then in the recent past therefore you are already getting descent quality paint. Next step the paint tools & accessories. This is where so many people get cheap. They will buy the $2 brush and the 3 pack of roller covers for $3. This is a big mistake. The tools you use to paint with are not supposed to be disposable. Good quality brushes and roller covers will last many years if properly cleaned and stored.
