Painting Tools

A while back I asked the facebook gang for some painting tips and one tip that stood out was a resounding endorsement for Purdy brushes.  I had never used Purdy products before because, well, I’m cheap.  But while painting my hallway, I had the chance to review some Purdy brushes and rollers as well.  Score!
I used Purdy angled brushes to cut in all my edges and corners and I applied the rest of the paint with a Purdy roller {you can see the tools I used in the photo above}.

The thing I noticed most about the Purdy products {besides the completely comfortable handle on the roller!} was that they lasted so much better than other brushes and rollers I’ve used.  The bristles on the brushes didn’t get mucked up and bent all out of place.  When I finished the job, the brush looked just as it had when I started.

I had the same experience with the roller.  It didn’t mat up like other rollers I’ve used and it rolled the paint on smoothly and evenly.  I may have to reevaluate my use of cheap paint tools!

Have you used Purdy products?  Did you notice a difference?

I received Purdy paint tools in exchange for my honest review.  All opinions are my own.

    Sometimes it’s so worth spending a bit more money on tools. Anything to relieve the frustration from an already time consuming project.
