Yay! Purdy Paintbrush Giveaway

Friday, September 2nd, 2011

Hey all, thanks so much for all of your commentary on the “Should You or Shouldn’t You Paint” post from yesterday.  I love reading all of your opinions and personal experiences, and it seems there are so many of us with a passion for revamping old things with paint.  So how timely is this weekend’s giveaway?  Very. 

Y’all know I loooooove Purdy brushes, they’re the best!  I’ve got a dozen or so sitting in my DIY closet and consider them an essential tool for any DIYer, from novice to pro. 

Do you wanna know what my favorite thing is about Purdy brushes?  It’s simple.  You’ll never find a fiber or hair in your paint with a Purdy.  Yes, they cost a few dollars more, but they’re worth it for two reasons.  You avoid the headache of picking paintbrush fibers or hairs out of your fresh wet paint (that stinks), and they last a very long time if you take care of them and clean them properly.

There’s something so charming about these nostalgic stationery products that reminds me of those simpler times long ago when instead of a text message, friends would drop their calling card when paying a visit.  Despite the conveniences of the digital age, nothing will ever take the place of a personalized handwritten note.
