One of the keys to getting a professional looking paint job is starting out with paint that is free of particles like dust or dried pigments. That means you probably want to strain your paint. One of the best and least expensive ways to do this is with a pair of old pantyhose.

Stretch an undamaged section over a bucket and pour the paint through.

All the debris that was in your paint is now left behind…instead of on your walls.
