Paint Products


Kilz Interior Paint

My favorite go-to brand of interior paint is Kilz. This brand stands the test of time, and is way more affordable than the new designer brands. We highly recommend checking out their latest color choices here!

Chalk Paint

Chalk paint is a great investment for furniture painting, as the consistency adheres to the wood even better than a traditional latex paint. These fun paint colors by The Spruce are sure to liven up any furniture piece.


Kilz Primer Paint

Kilz Primer is the gold standard for starting any paint project, especially when covering wood or heavily stained surfaces.

Rustoleum Spray Paint

We are always using Rustoleum white matte paint for indoor and outdoor projects. This versatile spray paint is perfect to renew old air register grates, or refresh an outdoor planter. Perfect for a variety of surfaces.


Painters Tape

There is a reason Scotch Blue painters tape is the industry standard, as it is the easiest to use tape for painting walls, furniture, or even spray paint projects. Plus, this value set is much cheaper in price than buying the rolls individually in store.


Ergonomic Paint Roller

If you are painting a large surface area or painting multiple days in a row you must buy an ergonomic paint roller. Hand cramps from painting are painful, and can cause major projects delays. This shur-line roller is comfortable to use and always keeps the roller tightly in place.


Shur-line Paint Edger Pro

This paint edge tool and paint pads are a must for cabinet and drawer painting. This is one of the only straight line paint products available to ensure paint is evenly applied in corners and around trim.



Wood Restoration

Howard Feed-N-Wax

Hands down this is the best wood conditioner for all your wood furniture. Easily wipes on to make worn wood look new again.


Restor-A-Finish

If you want to stain your wood while you condition it then this restoration bottle is for you, restoring your furniture or trim to new. Plus Howard makes a variety of stain colors to easily match any finish.


Floor Repair Kit

For a more precise color match, or to fill cracks in floors you'll want to invest in a full repair kit. The color tubes are mixable to get an exact shade, and comes with wood filler.

Tools


Wood Sander


For any larger sanding jobs (large furniture, cabinets) you will definitely want to invest in a hand held sander. This Dewalt model is the best reviewed sander available, and because it is electric you won't have to worry about buying a battery pack like you would with most power tools.


Sanding Sponges

For smaller sanding jobs or precise details we recommend a set of sanding sponges that are just as effective as sandpaper, but much more ergonomic.


Drywall Repair Kit

Cover any unsightly holes with this all in one drywall repair kit. Great for quick coverups so you can get back to painting faster. For larger repairs check out the larger kit.



Cleaners


Method All Purpose Cleaner

For an all purpose eco-friendly cleaner, Method French Lavender is the way to go. I use this spray cleaner for bathrooms, kitchen, floor spills and more. It not only cleans without harsh chemicals, but it also smells amazing!


Sponge Eraser

Magic Eraser Sponges are multi-purpose sponge pads that tackle dirt on almost any surface. From scuffs on walls to bathroom grime these sponges only need a little bit of water to tackle dirt. They can also be rinsed out and reused until the sponge has fully disintegrated.


Reusable Micro Fiber Cloths

The most eco-friendly cleaning switch to make is to ditch paper towels and swiffers and invest in a washable set of micro fiber cloths. These top rated and durable micro fiber cloths are safe to use on any surface, and very easy to clean.
