Yay! Purdy Paintbrush Giveaway

By Kate Riley September 2, 2011

Hey all, thanks so much for all of your commentary on the “Should You or Shouldn’t You Paint” post from yesterday.  I love reading all of your opinions and personal experiences, and it seems there are so many of us with a passion for revamping old things with paint.  So how timely is this weekend’s giveaway?  Very. 

Y’all know I loooooove Purdy brushes, they’re the best!  I’ve got a dozen or so sitting in my DIY closet and consider them an essential tool for any DIYer, from novice to pro. 

Do you wanna know what my favorite thing is about Purdy brushes?  It’s simple.  You’ll never find a fiber or hair in your paint with a Purdy.  Yes, they cost a few dollars more, but they’re worth it for two reasons.  You avoid the headache of picking paintbrush fibers or hairs out of your fresh wet paint (that stinks), and they last a very long time if you take care of them and clean them properly.

  159. I have one Purdy brush and I love it! My next painting project will be to paint these dining chairs that we picked up from craigslist!

  160. My next project will be refinishing/repainting a buffet for our son who is due in November. I got it on Craigslist for $20 and have been putting off refinishing it for a month now. It’s my first big piece and I’m torn on color! It’s already been painted white so I’m stuck – do I slap a fresh coat of white primer and paint on it or do I do something wild like green or bright blue?

    Oh, and I”m in my third trimester so energy is hard to come by right now. :)

  161. My next project will be refinishing/repainting a buffet for our son who is due in November. I got it on Craigslist for $20 and have been putting off refinishing it for a month now. It’s my first big piece and I’m torn on color! It’s already been painted white so I’m stuck – do I slap a fresh coat of white primer and paint on it or do I do something wild like green or bright blue?

    Oh, and I”m in my third trimester so energy is hard to come by right now. :)

  162. Since we painted the living and dining rooms, the color in the kitchen no longer works. At all. So the kitchen is next!

  163. My next project is repainting a china cabinet I just got done painting! I decided even though I loved the color, it just didn’t go well with the rest of my house. So, I am biting the bullet and re-doing it. It’s that, or repaint my entire house!

  164. I’m actually going to do re-finish my new coffee table I found at a thrift store yesterday this weekend. And then I bought a sander. And paint. I’ve been so inspired by your site that I want to try it too! :)

  165. Oh my goodness! I could soooo use these! I’m always working on some project or another, but I’m seriously contemplating redoing my kitchen cabinets, and obviously a good set of brushes would be fantastic.
    Thanks for hosting this giveaway!

  166. I’m refinishing a dresser!!! Your style galleries have inspired me! These would be great for all the little projects now floating through my mind.

  167. I have to go up and paint the cabinets in my kids bathroom where the laminate has all peeled off. Purdy paintbrushes make the job soooo much more pleasant—I love them!

  168. I have a lot of painting projects planned, but first up is my bathroom cabinets! They are dingy!

  169. I’m making over a chair… and kind of ruined my paintbrush on my last project from not cleaning it well enough, so I could use some new ones!

  170. i too am a fan of purdy paint brushes, thery’re the only brand i use. as a matter of fact i’m heading to my garage to start on a small french prov. chest

  171. What am I not painting? haha! We just got rid of our drop ceilings in all rooms of the house (YAY!) And now we have four ceilings to paint, plus walls, plus trim. I could use some more brushes =)

  172. My next painting project is to refinish the wall of my half-bath. They have two layers of peeling wall paper, with paint on top, tons of nail holes. So far, I’ve applied a coat of Guarz (problem surface sealant), and puttied all the holes. the next step is to apply some wall texture then PAINT! I will be so nice when this room doesn’t look like a tornado hit it anymore.

    Thanks for the giveaway!

  173. I would love to win these brushes! They are indeed the best and I don’t have some of those sizes!

  174. I found a small end table at the closest Goodwill that needs a fresh coat of paint before it can proudly take the place of the boxes I stacked on top of each other.

  175. Where do I begin?! Painting my mudroom, whitewashing a table, painting a dresser and an end table. So much for rest for the weary on Labor Day!

  176. Over Labor Day weekend I plan on painting trim in our new condo and painting a secretary desk – (an idea I got from CG!) thanks for the giveaway.

  177. literally, MY WHOLE HOUSE! seriously… coming up this fall we need to start painting. none of my walls have paint on them beside the junky builders grade paint. eeek! =)
    also i have to stain some vintage furniture we bought… sure could use these brushes!! ;)

  178. My next painting project will be our office – lots of cutting in! These brushes would be perfect. Thanks!

  179. I’m on the lookout for a dresser to paint for our bedrrom. I already painted the walls and completly agree that the only brush to use is a Purdy one

  180. I have a wooden bench on my front porch that I am planning to refinish and paint black. These would be perfect! Thanks for the chance to win.

  181. My next painting project is my dining room chairs! They’re currently a very ugly orange colored wood with speckles of paint, and restaining isn’t an option as the middle ornamental piece is plastic (classy no?), so paint it is!

  182. I have had a dining table for a while now (I actually asked for your advice back in March). It got hot very early down here in Texas! As soon as that fall weather hits, I will be painting away! I also have a sideboard that I have been wanting to freshen up with some peacock blue maybe!!

  183. Hopefully it will be the bathroom of the house we have an offer in on (our first place!). But if that falls though maybe our landlord will let me re-paint the ugly front door of our rental.

  184. My mom and I are helping my aunt completely redo her bedroom! We’ve got a wooden lamp and a side table we’ll be working on this weekend, and a lot more to come after that!

  185. um . . . my living room walls, the armoire that has been in my garage for months, or the corner desk that my son has been begging me do redo for the last year. Probably my walls will get done first because it’s to hot to work outside on the others.

  186. I love Purdy brushes–I always use them! I have a huge list of paint projects to tackle this fall, but I’m starting with my son’s room. He’s outgrown his “baby” room and wants it to look older. He’s 8, so I guess he’s old enough to be considered a big boy! :)

  187. My master bedroom! I’m so tired of it! We haven’t done anything to it since we moved in 4 years ago. It’s time for a change!

  188. My next project is to repaint our bathroom vanity counter. We have a strange little house in which nothing fits today’s products. When we tried to replace our counter top years ago, we found it is at the most 2/3 the size deep as today’s counter tops! I painted it then and I’m going to do it again! I love purdy brushes. They stand the test of time and they load, hold and release the paint evenly and easily.

  189. Oh I LOVE my Purdy paint brushes! I have a couple but it’s time for some new ones! I am trying to find an old buffet to paint black to put in our dining to store craft project supplies for the kiddos. And I’m currently painting the interior of our home. I love, love, love to paint!!

  190. Great timing. I’m about to start (maybe) repainting a table that I decided to spray paint in 110 degree weather, which turned out awful! Thanks for the chance.

  191. I have THREE projects on hold because the paint brushes that I chose were horrible!!!
    1. Done priming and sanding, now painting a Twin bed frame, head & foot board a crisp white for my youngest daughter
    2. Done priming, still have to sand and then painting a bookcase for my eldest daughter’s room
    3. Transforming a crib into a chalkboard table/workstation for my daycare darlings like: http://alittlelearningfortwo.blogspot.com/2011/08/repurposed-cot.html?spref=fb

    I “shared” this link on my FB page.


  192. Yay! I’m currently pulling about 50 decorative nails from a table I got on Craigslist. Then I have to remove some glued down canvas. THEN I can sand and paint it. Thanks for the giveaway.

  193. We are picking up 2 nightstands for our bedroom this weekend and they definitely need a new paint job!

  194. Love your blog!

    I will be painting my bathroom next, – the bath needs to go from primer to yellow – to continue the color up the wall of the yellow and black vintage 50s tile. I would do grey for a total wow look – but the neighbors behind me did and far be it from me to steal their thunder.

  195. The entire interior of my house. Or at least the family room, dining room, living room, master bath, 2 of the boys’ rooms.

  196. I’m not sure what I’ll be painting next, but I’m planning to stain some outdoor rockers next week. Does that count?

  197. We’re repainting the ‘neutral’ color of our entire house! The previous owners had painted every single wall a sort of yellowish cream color, and we’re redoing it all in a lovely pale gray. Lots of painting ahead, I’d love to win a set of these brushes!

  198. I would love to win one of those brush sets……they’ll make my projects so purdy!!! My next project is a sideboard that has been sitting in my kitchen forevvaaa….need to get it done so I can sell it.

  199. Actually, I have several pieces of furniture that will be getting painted as soon as our Florida temps drop a few degrees. Probably the first one I tackle will be a “wood” settee style bench I’m using in the bedroom.

    Thanks for the opportunity to win! I love Purdy brushes. I just have one and I guard it with my life! :)

  200. oh – i could sooo use this!! i am going to re=paint my cabinets and i am soo scared!! :)

  201. I Love these brushes! I have mine hid in a secret spot so my husband can’t find it. He is horrible with brushes. Never cleans them properly! I would love to have more than my one.

  202. Doors & trim!! The Purdy brush I bought several months ago has won my heart – so a few more would certainly make me a happy, happy girl!!

  203. I have a project I am very nervous to start! I bought 2 vintage chairs off craigs list and and planning on painting them black with Annie Sloan Chalk paint. It is my first ever chalk paint experience! I love these chairs so much, I don’t want to screw them up!

  204. I’ve been wanting some Purdy brushes! My next project is a neat piece of furniture I got from Craigslist. I am painting it black and then adding a white bird on a branch that goes on the right front door around to the right side of the piece. This will go in my sunroom as a side table.

  205. I’ve never had a purdy brush – looking forward to it.
    Am currently painting furniture, and also stripping and polyeurathaning (is this a word) an old cedar chest.

  206. I have an inherited dresser that has already been painted white. I’m going to paint it red red for my son’s room. I can’t wait! Weather is cooling down. Maybe this weekend!

  207. YAY is right…I love me some Purdy brishes- they are simply the best!!! My next project…hmmm..it will most likely be this lovely little telephone table I scored at a tag sale in the spring for 2$. thanks so much!!!

  208. My daughter is just about ready to ditch the crib so i am pulling my childhood victorian style bedroom set out from storage and giving them a fresh coat of paint for her new bedroom.

    The question is do i go white or risk it all with a bold color?

    I’ve heard great things about Purdy Paintbrushes!

  209. Hopefully the walls of my home. We are still waiting on permits, so it may be a little while, but a girl has always got to be prepared for anything!

  210. I have a few projects on my list, the first being to repaint my son’s red room as soon as I get back from taking him back to college (I was going to do this last year but decided to be nice and give him one more year in that dark cave).

  211. I have a rocker my DoDad made for me when I was young. I am going to spruce it up with my new Purdy brushes!

  212. I have so many painting projects on the horizon! First up the new wood on my coffered ceiling! I LOVE purdy brushes and could use new ones! Mine are at least 10 years old.

  213. I think I might finally start a nursery for my baby boy (4 months)…. so I need to repaint the walls :)

  214. There isn’t enough room on here for my list of painting projects…but I’ve had my eye on painting my bathroom and an old end table for my guestroom.

  215. 3 rooms down and 9 to go! Next if I have my way is the master bath. If my husband gets his way the garage. I may have to give in. ;)

  216. Hopefully my next project will be an island I am going to build for my kitchen. Thanks for the giveaway.

  217. My next painting project is likely going to be my father-in-law’s old workbench that I am turning into an outdoor buffet table/potting bench.

  218. I’ve started painting on canvas, so more canvas paintings to come. I also want to repaint the mirror frame, from orange to venetian gold.

  219. My next painting project will be the bench I’m building – if I ever finish it. Currently I have pieces and sandpaper, and wood putty laying around my great room. Thanks for hosting this terrific giveaway!

  220. I would love these paint brushes! I am soon to embark on my first furniture painting project: a cool, little side table/cabinet/book holder.

  221. I have lots of paint projects lined up! Exterior of the house (just a bit of alumnimum siding) and front door, guest bedroom (ceilings, walls, AND trim!), and kitchen (ceiling, walls, trim, doors, AND cabinets)

  222. I would use the paintbrushes for my kitchen painting project…they will be perfect for all the spots around my cabinets.

  223. I am very anxious to repaint our dated oak kitchen cabinets. I want them to look just like the ones Kate redid in her guest house!

  224. I’m painting shelving for a corner in my master bedroom. I love books and beautiful bottles…they need a home. :)

  225. My next painting project is out builder-white walls. We’ve been here 3 years, and still haven’t painted. These brushes would be great for ALL the edging I’m going to be doing.

  226. My next project is to paint a natural stained cabinet black to match my new gray living room. I’m a little scared because I’ve never painted wood before, but I got a lot of advice here! Thanks!

  227. My next project needs Purdy Brushes! Two night stands painted in golden green… they’re going to look fabulous! BTW Kate, I LOVE you blog! :)

  228. These paintbrushes look great! We really need to paint our downstairs bathroom, so that’s definitely next on my list.

  229. My next project will be my dining room buffet. It has a gorgeous bow front and beading detail but has seen better days. I’m still new to painting furniture so this should be an adventure!

  230. My next painting project will a mirror for my bedroom and then a small table for my living room.

    Thanks for the giveaways!

  231. Up next for me is baby boy’s dresser. I’m thinking either navy blue or lime green–I can’t decide! Probably navy, though the lime is calling to me . . .

  232. I’m refinishing my Grandma’s old hutch and my childhood piano when they arrive in the next month or so! I will definitely be painting the hutch and re-staining the piano.

  233. Oh, if I could have given “love” to Purdy on Facebook, I would have! Instead, I “liked” them. My next painting project? The entire apartment! I’m fed up with “renter’s dingy beige” and I’m ready to rock out some paint.

  234. I just got done painting my daughter’s bed and nightstand (hand-me-downs from my grandmother) and next I will be painting her dresser (hand-me-down from my mother in law) to match. Now the bed is purple and the rest is white with purple drawers to match, which perfectly matches her room and personality. Next I will be painting my old mismatched bedroom furniture as soon as I find the perfect shade of pale yellow.

  235. What a great giveaway!!! I love Purdy paint brushes…wouldn’t use any other brand. We have quite a few paint projects waiting to be started. First off is my daughter’s bedroom.

  236. I’ve been staring at an old dresser that needs repainting, and your site has given me courage to tackle it.

  237. Oooh I just love your giveaways!!! My next paint project is my 2 wooden nightstands. I stained them about 5 years ago but they are just way toooooo dark!! Need to lighten them up with some fresh white paint…I think I’m going to try Annie Sloan’s chalk paint…can’t wait!!! Hopefully I’ll have some nice new Purdy’s too!!! Thanks Kate!

  238. My next painting project will be the baseboards in the nursery (already did the walls). The brushes would be great for that!

  239. I LOVE my Purdy brushes! Next painting project is the entire basement, and a a few tables to go in it, and these would come in handy!

    Thanks for the chance to win these!!!

  240. Will be painting 2 large thrift store medallions to go over a bed. Love your projects!

  241. As for my next projects. I have many, I am in the middle of stripping and repainting interior doors, I have a front door to do too. I have 5 chairs to refinish and a cabinet to go from wood to painted. thats all I can think of right now that involves paint but there is much more going on. Just bought a house!

  242. Finished painting our bedroom a week ago….three more big rooms and 2 hallways to go. Makes me tired thinking of all of the work :)

  243. I have so many painting projects lined up right now (we just bought our first house), but the next in line is a couple chairs for my craft room. I love Purdy brushes!

  244. I wish that my next painting project would be to paint all the rooms in our house…. I will have to settle with only painting the trims for a new window and a new door frame.

  245. Oh these would be so helpful for a noob like me! :) My project this weekend is to take a red metal drawer unit to white…wish me luck!

  246. My next painting project is actually a project I started and then stopped because it was so messy and time consuming (working 40+ hrs a week doens’t leave much me/project time). I’ve started taking all of the original doors in our home off their hinges and stripping the 5+ layers of paint so that I have a fresh start to paint them all the same and replace all the hardware. It’s been a long slow process but I can’t wait until they’re done!

  247. We just bought a new house, so I have LOTS of painting projects on my horizon. This weekend I’m hoping to tackle a guest room and the dining room. Next weekend will hopefully be the master bedroom.

  248. I want to get another chance for the Purdy brushes, so I am posting and leaving a comment. Thanks..

  249. My next project is my hutch & buffet. It’s going from it’s long time brown color to a nice creamy white.

  250. I need to touch up my dining room soon. I love Purdy brushes. IMO, there isn’t a better brand.

  251. I have a bunch of current projects so this is perfect! Entry walls, stairway walls, plant stands, etc. Thanks for the chance!

  252. Just bought some chairs I’m itching to paint! A new brush that doesn’t leave hairs — Heaven!!

  253. I’ve always heard wonderful things about purdy paintbrushes, but have never tried them. I will be tackling out master bedroom in the next month or so, these would help tremendously!

  254. Ooo…I have no idea what my next project will be but because I’m an art major, I’m SURE I’ll use them at some point!

  255. I love Purdy brushes! The next project? Maybe one of the two children’s’ rocking chairs, floating shelves for the laundry room, shelves for the grandkids’ room, or the kids’ folding step stool…so hard to choose!

  256. Our next paint project – the kitchen. It’s large and those Purdy brushes will come in handy when it comes to cutting. :-)

  257. We are building our new home, so I’m sure there will be many painting opportunities which I would love new paintbrushes.

  258. My next project is probably going to be a long dresser I have in our room. It is just a bad color of wood and it needs help!

  259. My next project will be finding a console table to paint for my entryway. I could use some good new brushes. Thanks for the chance to win!

  260. I have nesting tables to paint – that Purdy brush would come in handy!

  261. I love Purdy brushes! I just got my first stock of Annie Sloan paint so after this weekend, I may have painted everything in my house :)

  262. My friend just got a new house and they’re just starting a family and have a small budget. I’m helping her paint a table and chair set we got for $10. I’ve never had a Purdy brush and I would love to win this. :D

  263. I am painting a dresser red for my babies red and a hutch red for the kitchen. I have a thing for red. . .

  264. My next painting project will be to change the color of my front door. Have been reading a lo about Purdy brushes lately and was going to give them a try. Count me in for a chance to win them — woo hoo!!

  265. I’m working up the courage to paint my kitchen cabinets now that the kiddos are back in school.

  266. Our guest bath needs a bit of a makeover so I thought I’d try my hand at the bathroom cabinets. I’m hoping to complete this before the holidays so that our geusts can have a “refreshed” bathoom to use! Happy holiday weekend to you, Kate! Thanks for the chance on your giveaway.

  267. Yikes… lots of “next” projects to paint, but I would say first on my list should be my office walls/trim!

  268. Purdy paint brushes are the only ones that I use! My dad bought my first one for me, as he is very particular about painting supplies. I must have inherited his painting gene, because he’ll let me work on a paint project with him, but not my brother!

  269. my next paint project may just be something involving chalkboard paint! i love chalkboard paint!

  270. My next project is going to be stripping and then repainting an older dresser that belongs to my boyfriend. Years ago, his mom painted it a hideous bright blue color that needs to go! I’m thinking something in a warm chocolatey color with new fixtures will make it better.

  271. The next paint job is the master bedroom since we already bought the paint, but then we still need to paint 2 bedrooms and bathrooms. Don’t tell DH, but I kind of want to repaint the living room now, too.

  272. I think my next painting project is going to be a side table I just recently finished. The color didn’t turn out how I was hoping so I think I am ready to go at it again.

  273. My next project will be repainting my daughter’s bedroom from white to grey and stenciling over a dark blue stripe border.

  274. Next project-cutting in my master bathroom. We recently moved to a ranch home and have painted every room. I hate my paint brushes with a passion and have had the problem with picking out the bristles. I try to keep everything on a budget and always see those pretty purdys but just can’t bite the bullet and spend that kind of money on a single paintbrush. Would love to win and try these out!!!
