Giveaway...


This weeks giveaway come from Homeright and will make your painting life a little easier. Homeright contacted me to try their Paintstick EZ-Twist, which draws up paint directly from the paint can into the handle and allows you to paint without a paint tray. The Paintstick EZ-Twist was easy to assemble out of the box and the lid fit perfectly on the can. They do give you instructions on how to work with the paint lid if your paint can is smaller or square. As instructed, a perforated roller is needed and to initially saturate the roller is takes one whole filling of the paintstick.


Once I started painting the paint rolled on as normal. While painting is was easy to twist the handle to add more paint to the roller. I did find that the roller slide a few times, which indicated that I had too much paint on the roller. I was able to apply two coats on an 4'x8' wall without having to refill and had some paint left over. I will say that you have to devote some time to the clean-up to make sure that all the paint is out of the paintstick, especially if you want to paint with a different color the next time.

Homeright is offering one lucky winner the Paintstick EZ-Twist.

That looks neat! And it can hold a lot of paint so less bending to get more paint on the roller. Thank you for hosting the giveaway!
