Several months back, someone from Purdy contacted me to see if I would like to receive a free Prep & Paint Kit. Of course I said yes, because I LOVE Purdy paint brushes and paint rollers and because, well, I like free things!
This package has been sitting in my Master Closet as a constant reminder that I needed to tell everyone what I thought. Problem was....we had no painting projects to do around the house where I could use these items because we couldn't do any painting projects around the house while the house was up for sale.
Now that we are painting the Dining Room, I finally am able to use the items & tell you what I think.
First off, I didn't need a free kit to know how great Purdy brushes and rollers are. They are the only brushes and rollers I have used to paint a room in a very long time. That's not to say I'm not open to suggestion. They cost a little more, but they last a long time if you take care of them. I'm talking years! They also do a superb job!
The 2 1/2" brush that came in the kit is perfect for painting doors or is great for a guy to use. My favorite brush is the 1 1/2" brush. The 6 in 1 painters tool is good for prying paint cans open, scraping, etc. It's much better than a screwdriver, or in my case, an oyster knife.
Here's the paintbrush I am currently using to cut in the wall paint. It's a 1 " brush which is good for painting a straight line close to the trim. I think I've used this brush for several years now and it still does a fabulous job!
So, do you have a favorite paintbrush or tool that you have to have?
Just so you know, even though Purdy sent me the painting kit, they didn't pay me or tell me what to write.
It's back to painting the Dining Room trim and wainscoting for me today... day 3~ two more to go!
Hope you have a nice day!
