Giveaway // Paint Brush Trio

Sun Room | Dayna McCarthy InteriorsLast week I showed you my newly painted sun room. The change from beige to bluey-gray was such a refreshing update.  I mentioned this room is an odd space being only 7′ wide by 11′ long and in that small space there are 3 large windows running down the left side, one large window on the right side, and one bay window at the end. Needless to say, painting this room was a slow process!

Now I don’t consider myself a painting expert, but I have painted almost every room in our home and just about every past apartment, so I can recognize a good brush from a bad one. I’ve done the cheap ones which inevitably get tossed after the job, but these are keepers:

Harris gel brushes, available at Home Depot

The Harris Gel Paint Brush handles have nifty gel inserts which made the job of cutting in quite comfortable for the hands.  They washed up really well and I thought the coverage was good, with minimal streaks (but this can also be attributed to a quality paint – I used Sherwin Williams Emerald, colour matched to BM Rainier Gray). I will totally use these brushes again and recommend them to anyone with a painting project in mind. This trio set of brushes are available at Home Depot at a very reasonable price point.

I’m happy to say that I have a 3-pack of Harris Gel brushes to giveaway today!  What you will get:  a unique gel 3 paint brush pack containing 1.5″, 2.5″ and 2″ angled brush. The unique gel pads provide additional comfort during continued use reducing fatigue for longer tasks. The 100% synthetic filament is specifically developed for all types of paint and produces a fine finish.

To enter, just leave me a Comment telling me what painting project(s) you have planned this summer. For an additional entry, share this giveaway with your friends on Facebook and leave an additional Comment letting me know you did.

Giveaway is open to residents of Canada and I will randomly select the winner on Sunday June 15 after 6pm.

Happy Painting!
