I transformed our Mud Room Closet into this:
Part of the reason I decided to paint the walls is becuase Purdy Paintbrushes sent me an awesome little package to try out. Now, I already use Purdy Paintbrushes, so I'm a fan -- but the paintbrush they sent me COMPLETELY solidified my love for them. They sent me this paint brush to try out:
And can I just tell you -- it is my new favorite. Do you guys have a favorite paint brush?? I used to -- but this is by far the best.
It paints SO smoothly -- the paint just glides onto the wall. AND -- I hate cleaning brushes -- but this one last through the cleaning and has dried up nicely.
PLUS, they also sent me a six-in-one tool -- have you guys used these? They do SO many things.
Look at all the awesome things it can do!
The front edge is a sharp scraper that’s perfect for removing paint flecks, glue and even wood. The blade can even be re-sharpened after it begins to dull.
Great for spreading putty or joint compound.
The short, flat side is perfect for prying. You can use it to open paint cans or remove the bolts from the door hinge.
You might be wondering about the purpose of this feature- I did at first. Have you ever tried to clean a roller well enough to reuse it? Well the half circle is designed to squeegee away paint from the roller.
The handle incorporates nail set ends for setting drywall nails and other hammering jobs.
The Pointy End
The pointy end is great for digging out putty or scoring dried paint. You can pry up staples or open up cracks for patching. I’ve used it for removing caulk and it works like a charm.
I LOVE the six-in-one and the paintbrush -- and Purdy is my favorite brand -- everything is high quality.
So how would YOU like to try out your own paintbrush (possibly one of your new favorites!?!) and a six-in-one tool?
Well you can! Purdy has said they'd like to give one of YOU a Prep & Paint kit too!
Here's the deets:
