A HOME interiors expert has revealed how they used a Dollar Tree kitchen utensil to deal with a tricky paint job and give it a unique look.

Reddit user “slick415” revealed the handy hack in a wordless video which has astounded social media commentators.

The video shows the user holding up a Dollar Tree sponge before putting it into some white paint.

The Reddit user then dabs the paint-covered sponge onto a wall.

Instead of getting a smooth finish that would have been achieved with a roller, the sponge creates an interesting sort of rippled, textured look.

After dabbing the wall with the sponge, the user then picks up a “knockdown knife” and proceeds to scrap the newly-applied paint upwards.

One user appeared to be confused about what they were seeing, asking “What exactly are they doing?” but another helpful commentator explained: “Attempting to match the wall texture where it appears a baseboard has been removed.”

Many commentators were impressed with the expert’s skills, with one writing: “At first I was like ‘this is not going to blend in with the current wall’ and then I was like ‘daaaaaang’.”

Another simply added: “Nicely done!”

A third said: “Wow that turned out better than I expected. This is great.”
