I am on a mission to get some home projects done within the next month and the guest bedroom/library/Matt’s office is at the top of the list. We finally finished our Ikea built-in Billy bookshelves (which I’ll be showing you soon once I have some time to style them) and thanks to the HomeRight EZ Twist PaintStick the room is painted!
I loved the Quick Mask! This stuff is awesome. It’s this little roll of scotch tape attached to plastic. You simply pull it out of the roll, tape it onto your baseboards, and unravel the attached plastic drop cloth. I can be a messy painter, so I put a drop cloth over the plastic one and loved having the extra protection.
The next thing I used was the Quick Painter. It is a great little edger. You suck up the paint into the stick and then press the blue handle to release the paint onto the little pad. I prefer cutting in with a brush so this tool wasn’t my favorite, but it might be helpful to someone who isn’t crazy about using a brush.
And now for the fun one—the PaintStick EZ-Twist. The PaintStick is a paint roller with the paint contained within the paint handle so you don’t need a paint tray. You place the special cap with the tube-straw-thingie onto your can and then suck up your paint into the PaintStick.
In the picture below, you can see the paint being sucked up into the stick. Pretty cool, eh?
To begin painting, you turn and push the end of the handle until the paint fills the roller. One roller full of paint covers about 8 square feet.
Things I Loved About the HomeRight PaintStick:
- I didn’t have to use a messy paint tray.
- The roller fills from the inside out, so the coverage is amazing. I only had to do one coat in most places.
- Painting goes very quickly with PaintStick.
- I didn’t have to use my ladder on my 9 foot ceilings because the handle is so long.
Things to Consider About the HomeRight Paintstick:
- The handle is very long when completely filled, so it probably isn’t the best tool for tight jobs.
- The rollers are more expensive so if you like to toss your rollers instead of cleaning them it is definitely something to consider.
- Clean up takes a bit longer.
Would I recommend the PaintStick to you? Based on my experience in painting this one room, I absolutely would recommend it! I don’t enjoy the process of painting, so anything that makes the process easier is helpful.
Here is how the wall looks now. The room is painted and ready for the next step!
I used Knitting Needles by Sherwin Williams in this room. I had some left over from painting the exterior of our home and love the color.
