Popcorn Ceiling Paint Edging Hack

1 Material
Because I'm crazy and I don't have enough on my plate already I decided that I hated the taupe color of my walls and wanted to have a fresh new color so I decided to paint my living room dining room kitchen entry way etc.
And unfortunately I can only do this when the kids are asleep as they're under three and learning by touching is a big thing with them my 9 month old also learns by eating so definitely have to get it done at night so he doesn't eat paint lol! This is probably going to be my shortest post ever but I thought it was a great idea so I'd share I'm not going to lie I'm really lazy and didn't feel like standing on a chair to tape the ceiling as I'm 5'2 and my ceilings are 7 feet so it's damn near impossible job, also that my feelings are hideous popcorn texture and trying to put tape on that is also a nightmare.
This is really only one step put your plastic mudding/ puddy knife up against the wall and run your brush along the underside of it you will get right up underneath the wall and the roofline without having any paint on your roof you'll be edging like a pro seriously I'm so lazy and this works so awesome I think next time I would go with a bigger one so that I could do a bigger area faster!
And just like that your cutting paint edges like a pro without the tape!
