Having moved several times in my life, I’m no stranger to the longing desire to redecorate my surroundings and make my space feel more my own. One of the easiest ways to do this is to change the colour of the walls. Just about every place I’ve lived has been okay with letting us re-paint.
I’ve used a variety of different types and qualities of paints over the years, as well as a variety of painting supplies to get the painting job done. Through experience I know that it’s better to buy quality products then to buy the cheapest ones repeatedly.
The new SHUR-LINE Easy Release Frame is available at Lowes with a suggested retail value of $8.98.
This frame works really well—you can easily remove the roller for cleaning. I like that the paint roller doesn’t go all the way to the edge—I often found that other rollers fall off and I end up with a lot of paint on my hands. The removal of the roller really is mess-free! You don’t need to touch the roller to remove it from the frame.
I also tried out a pole extender so that I could paint those higher-up areas and to make painting a large area easier. This is one product that has been missing from my paint supply bin for a previous paint jobs. The grip on both the pole and the holder is great for comfortable painting. When you have to paint a living room and dining room that were previously a dark blue with layers of primer and then paint, (like we did), you’ll understand the importance of a comfortable tool to use for painting!
The new SHUR-LINE Easy Reach® poles are available at Home Depot, Home Hardware and Lowes with a suggested retail value of $29.99.
To help reach awkward and inconvenient areas, SHUR-LINE has produced the Easy Reach® pole. While painting, a simple click of a button allows for easy adjustment of the length of the pole – up to double its length – from 30” to 60”.
An invaluable tool for your next painting project is an edger. I really can’t recommend these enough—you won’t need to tape the edges/trim!
The Edge Like a Pro features an ergonomic handle that swivels and can be used in a hand held manner. It is also threaded for attachment to all standard poles.
The SHUR-LINE Edge Like a Pro ceiling and trim paint edger is available at The Home Depot, Lowes and Home Hardware stores for a suggested retail price of $5.49.
The pad easily removes for cleaning and replacing, and you can quickly clean up the holder.
