You know why I was so excited about this? Here are our well used brushes ...
8 of the 10 brushes hanging there is a Purdy brush. I don't even use the other 2 brushes there. (And don't hate the basement laundry room. Its a dungeon and its on the list for a major overhaul possibly next year.)
This one was made by someone name Huong. Isn't that a nice personal touch? I decided to use the brush and roller to paint 2 doors that we never got around to painting on our first floor.
The roller is also as soft and smooth as a cloud and it has no lint. You can actually wash this roller and it won't be falling apart in your next project. That's impossible with cheap rollers. Lint everywhere!
Speaking of smooth finishes, the bristles are so fine and the paint goes on so smoothly. Perfecto!
Another great thing, look at how sharp the edge of the brush is with paint on it. Think of how much easier it is to cut in to a wall when you have an edge that sharp. I'm lazy. I hate taping off. If you've read my blog for a while, you know that I do most of my projects when my girls are napping. Taping would use up so much of the precious nap time. No need for tape if you use a good brush! I especially like the angled brushes for walls and the square brushes for furniture like tables.
That same brush is going to paint their house this fall and my mantle in the near future. They last a long time and you really get your money's worth.
As you can see, I really didn't need any convincing to sing the praises of Purdy brushes. I've been a loyal Purdy customer for a long time now. This is something I've really come to feel so strongly about and I cringe just like Mr. T used to when I see someone else using a terrible brush. If you've never used a good brush, give a Purdy brush a try. You'll be forever convinced.
