All I could say was YESSIREE!!! SEND ME FREE STUFF!!!
So I waited--half thinking that it really was just a joke--UNTIL THIS Purdy little thing arrived in the mail!
And I knew JUST what to do with it.
I have a front porch. And it is a cute little porch--except that it has fallen into disrepair (bad owners!). I have been putting off painting if for SEVERAL years now. So it looked like this:
I know--seeing it now on the computer screen--I am so ashamed of myself! How could I have let it get THAT BAD? Well--obviously it could no longer be ignored. Something had to be done.
So here is the part where I tell you about how I painted my poor little porch with my AWESOME NEW PAINT BRUSH!
Oh wait--First I had to open the paint can. And this was NO SMALL CHORE mind you. This can had been in our garage--also for SEVERAL YEARS--waiting for me to get
my rear in gear going on this project. So it was like CEMENTED shut. Tight like a trap. You get the idea.
So this handy little 6 in 1 tool was SUPER awesome to have. Usually I have to hijack one of my hubby's screwdrivers and mutilate the lid of the can--usually so badly that it can never be closed normally again--just to get it to open. This guy did the job without so much as marring the lid.
Next I laid out all my paint stuff on a garbage bag.
I always do this so that I can easily pull and scoot around the bag with the paint tray and all my tools and not get paint everywhere.
Then I also laid out all my spill and splatter catchers.
You may use drop cloths--I use old towels and LOVE using them. I have never spent the bucks for an actual drop cloth--but have often used the big rolls of plastic (which I hate by the way). The towels work SO GREAT because they are easy to move around--they don't fly up in the breeze and get stuck to whatever you are painting--and they are ABSORBENT!!! So if you do happen to dribble on them they just absorb it--and it is no big deal. ALSO if you happen to get paint on something that you didn't want to get paint on--you can use the corner of the towel and wipe it up real quick before it dries. JUST DON"T MAKE A BIG SPILL--because it probably would soak thru.
Ok--enough about the towels.
On to the main event:
The Paint Brush (which I forgot to take a picture of before painting). Dun da da daaa:
