How do you Make Painting Easier? #Giveaway
My husband is a handy guy. Thank goodness for that. He paints and builds and fixes. That saves a lot of money over time. Sadly we don’t always have the time for him to do the big picture projects, or even the emergency plumbing kinds of things, but he is the go to guy for helping. He lends himself to friends and family for wallpaper and painting and general fixit carpentry kinds of things. He is also very good at painting. He has a really old painting and wallpapering tray and kit and it sits in our garage waiting for someone to use it. That thing gets used about once a year and then we have to store it. It is messy and unsightly, but I had grown used to it until I saw the Roll and Stow.
Roll & Stow is a compact all in one storage, mobility and anti-drying unit. Roll & Stow is a great tool for people like my husband because it helps to make painting easier. It helps to make a big job more efficient.
Did you know that painting is a top do it yourself job for Canadians? It is relatively inexpensive and painting can give your home a fast facelift. Speaking of which, we are about due to have some painting done here. We moved in about one year ago and have settled in and spread out but there are a couple of things I’d love to tackle. I’d love to paint the girl’s rooms in a cheery shade that makes them feel like the space is cozy and all theirs. I am still narrowing down the shades we would like for Payton’s room. But I think that when we finally pick the colour for in there and commit to painting in the spring or summer, then the Roll & Stow will be put to the test.
Although painting is one of the top cosmetic do it yourself tasks for Canadians, the process is not without challenges. Moving the trays of paint around the room can be perilous. Obviously you tarp off everything and put it in the centre of the room, or move the furnishings out of the room, but still you need to be cautious with the paint trays and cans. Even with drop cloths spills can occur. Carpet and hardwood can be damaged.
The new Canadian Roll & Stow acts as a painting work station, holding various sizes and models of paint cans. You don’t have to pick the Roll & Stow up and risk making a mess; instead you roll it to the new location. The Roll & Stow moves easily across carpet and hardwood. The tray doesn’t roll away as you load paint onto the roller either. This handy tool comes fully assembled and carries up to 40 pounds of supplies and tools. About 150 pounds of containers and objects can be transported using the base which has sturdy wheels.
The Roll & Stow is like a toolbox for all your painting needs. I like that it helps to keep all those messy painting rags and rollers organized in one spot. The Roll & Stow is good for many uses and tasks around the house. You can use it for washing the car, sealing the driveway and even pool maintenance (which would be useful here.) The Roll & Stow is excellent for staining a deck. Too bad we didn’t have it last year when we stained the deck here. The Roll & Stow is available at Home Hardware locations across Canada and also at BMR and La Maison du Peintre. It sells for about $47.99.
I am also gifting one as a giveaway prize to one Canadian reader. Please follow the directions below to win. Good Luck!
This prize pack would be for my husband to finally paint the rest of my house… I am sure he would be overjoyed.
LOL. Well it would make things go easier for sure.
I need this for my boyfriend — we are in the process of renovating the entire house and he insists on doing all of the painting himself.
We are house hunting so I would use this to paint our new house (once we find it!)
My husband is the maintenance man of our apartment building. He does all the painting etc.. this is ideal for him!
I need this for myself! I want to paint the living room soon 🙂
My hubby could use this
repainting the house in he summer so this will come in handy for sure
I could use this since I really need to get motivated and paint our entrance way and hall!
I do all my own painting. This looks like a great idea to keep all my supplies together!
Maybe if I win this I can give it to my hubby and he will paint the entrance way and hall for me 🙂
I love painting, and will be redoing my whole place soon. This would definitely be appreciated!
This would be perfect for us right now. We’re starting to repaint our house slowly room by room and this would be really helpful.
At least this would get our painting supplies organized – which might give us the motivation to get started..lol
This would be gifted to my husband. He’s the maintenance person of our building.
Definitely need to get the entrance way and hallway painted!
My husband would get this and he will be doing a lot of painting this year, starting with the trim around the windows/roof.
I would be overjoyed to win, then he could start keeping his supplies a little neater then in plastic bags and buckets…
I need to repaint my bathroom.
The hubster could really use this .. aside from the trim around windows and roof he has all the apartment doors to paint!
my husbands a carpenter this would help alot
I decided last night the bathroom needs painting… seems a lot easier then washing the walls, might be because I don’t do the painting but I DO do the wall washing lol
I need this for my husband without a doubt!

It will be for my husband and he will be painting the dining room… I hope.
when we moved into our house, it was a PISTACHIO GREEN … still is and I hate it.
I need this for the hubster!
I’d love to give this to my hubby. We’ve got a reno going on, and the kitchen and bathroom need repainting. This would sure be handy!
Would love this for my hubby. He has painted a couple focal walls in our house and is itching to do more downstairs, maybe even the bathrooms. He is a fantastic painter and I would love to make things a bit easier on him.
I need this for myself. I’m about to embark on a tonn of painting at our place and this kit would make the job easier!
