Purdy Paint Kit Review and Giveaway

*This giveaway is now closed*

Hello everyone!  This week I have another fabulous giveaway for you all.  The fabulous team at Purdy sent me an awesome kit to try out, and one to give away to you!

It came with a great 2.5 inch XL-glide angled brush and a 6 in 1 painters tool.  Now, I already use Purdy brushes anyway when I paint because they are the best.  I hardly ever tape off when I paint (only when absolutely necessary), and just do my cutting in with a brush.  But it has to be a GOOD brush to get great results!  I did not have this size of Purdy brush yet, and I have to say I love it!

Look at this pretty thing…

I first tried it out when I added the wainscoting in the new office.

That was a lot of boxes to paint and the brush worked perfectly.  It did a great job of covering on the first swipe and even got into all of the detail work on the moulding.  I have used this brush many times since then and it’s my favorite size brush now.  A good Purdy brush is a great investment, I promise. :)

I’ve never had a painter’s tool before, but after using the one in this kit I wonder how I ever lived without it! Here is everything this little tool can do: clean rollers, scrape paint, spread putty/compound, open/clean cracks, open paint lids and set nails.  Wow, that’s a mighty tool!  I’ve been using it to open paint cans and closing them shut with the opposite end.

Works like a champ!

So would you like a kit of your own with an awesome paint brush and painter’s tool?  Of course you would! :)

To enter:

1. Leave a comment telling me how much you would love to have this pretty new kit;

for additional entries you can…

2. Blog, tweet, or facebook about this giveaway and leave a separate comment that you did; and

3. Follow my blog, and if you already do, just let me know. :)

That’s it friends!  I will run this giveaway until Saturday, November 20.  Good luck everyone!

  1. Oh I would LOOOOOVE to win this kit! I only use purdy brushes when I paint, b/c honestly the other brands just suck. And I totally agree about the cutting in, with a purdy brush, there is no need to tape off, which I love! Mostly, I’d like to win for that cool tool, I love cool tools!

I own an Interior Design bussiness in Lubbock Texas and own a retail store too, but have been searching for a way to do what I love to do but serve God as well, and my blog has allowed me to do that! I share a Scripture daily and sometimes tell what it has meant in my life! Without God, I would be nothing as well! I would love for you to stop by and visit my Blog! Im doing 14 days of Christmas Trees, WHEW! I have a GIVEAWAY too, I will be following you!

  82. Terri McLaughin says:

    Like many others, I’m frugal and hate having to pay more for a brand name, even though I suspect (and you and everyone says) the quality is worth it. I always say I’m a terrible painter, but I think its the horribly cheap supplies I buy. I’d love to win this giveaway so I can prove to myself that Purdy products are worth every penny (and more)

  83. Terri McLaughin says:

    I follow your blog via Google reader

  84. It would be nice to know what a “good” brush is! I always just use the cheapies!

  85. Oh, I would have so many uses for this kit! I have so many projects on my “to do” list.

  86. I am a follower of Decorchick!

  87. I would love to try this on my many list of To Do Projects!

  88. Rose in Ohio says:

    My favorite part of every paint job is cutting in around the trim and at the ceiling. I love the feeling of holding the brush perfectly steady and drawing that bead of paint all the way up the edge of the trim. (It’s a good thing I enjoy it so much—no one else in my family wants to do it–go figure.)

    So, YES, I’d like to win that Purdy kit!

  89. Rose in Ohio says:

    I follow your blog, too.

  90. This giveaway is just in time for me to do some touch ups before the holiday.

  95. I would love to win this Purdy kit to help me paint my diningroom before I host Christmas dinner.

  97. I would love, love, love, to win this “purdy” little kit!! I live in a home that was built in 1895, and until about 10 years ago (when we moved in) it had been very neglected! Once the home was “rescued” it has been in a continual process of restoration. Needless to say, GOOD paint brushes have been a MUST! And as anyone who has an older home knows, the work never ends! Thank goodness it is so rewarding! I love my old house!

  98. Oh yeah…..I am a follower too!

  99. I still have about 3 rooms left to paint in my house, and probably a few more I’d like to repaint :P

    This would be a perfect tool to have!

  129. Jennifer H says:

    My mother told me (insisted) when we painted over the summer Purdy paint brushes were worth the money. Mother definitely knows best, she was right. My thirteen year old son painted an entire room for the first time (his) this summer. We taught him how and definitely having the right paintbrush (Purdy) made all the difference. We are now a Purdy family and I would love to win this set; I don’t have this brush or this really cool tool!!!

  130. Jennifer H says:

    I follow you via email…

  131. I would love to win this… in the process of so many painting projects!

  132. I’m a follower!

  133. I NEED this kit. Recently my live-in adult son “borrowed” my brush to paint his room. I found it…lying stiff…dead stiff…in the paint tray…never to paint again.

    I’ve not “officially” become a follower yet…but I’m here every day. You’re listed in my “favorites”.


  134. Love love love it!

    The staircase moulding came out really well, looks really good and I just love love love the sconces and also the way you have decorated the wall with all the picture frames and the mirror.

    I would like to know what the final cost of the staircase moulding project came out to.

    We just recently bought a house and I am just starting with all the DIY projects taking inspiration from your blog. So I would love to have the Purdy Paint Kit to get my projects started with a wonderful handy paint kit.
