DIY home renovations are becoming more and more popular these days. Nobody wants to pay big bucks to have someone do a mediocre job on a room meant to be enjoyed by the family. 

We have been doing our own DIY interior painting and decorating, every spring we try to give our place a bit of a home face-lift. Being inside most of the winter months has us needing to brighten the place, change some colours and freshen things up a bit!

Now, hubby's father is a veteran interior/exterior painter and decorator. He does it for a living and has his entire life so low and behold hubby inherited the knowledge and knows a thing or two about how to properly get a job done with great results. I on the other hand am an amateur when it comes to interior decorating and DIY projects. Unless it has specific instructions like say stick on decals, it probably won't end up the way I originally envision it. 

This time, when hubby starts our DIY home-face lift I will be able to help and still get great results thanks to SHUR-LINE painting tools!

Something I remember both my father in law and hubby saying about painting is that you need good rollers and a good roller cage, otherwise you're asking for a mess in both attempting to paint and the clean up afterwards. 

The SHUR-LINE Easy Release Frame eliminates messy project clean up. It's designed with a lever system that allows release of the roller cover for washing or throwing away. One simple squeeze of the lever and the roller cover is quickly released from the frame avoiding a mess and saving time. With its unique design it also prevents the roller cover from slipping off and can be used with any standard size roller cover. The soft, ergonomic handle is designed for comfort, prevents your hands from getting tired and is designed to use with an extension pole.


Forget standing on an unsafe surface like a chair or climbing a ladder for those hard to paint areas like high walls and ceilings. SHUR Line Easy Reach Extendable Pole makes it simple to reach and limits your risk of falling or straining yourself trying to stretch and reach. It has a universal threaded tip to fit different attachment tools. The foam handle adds extra comfort and there's a built-in notch to hang it for easy storage. 




Painting the trim in a room requires patience and accuracy. If you are painting close to a ceiling it can be easy to get paint on the ceiling or on the tools you are using to cut a straight line. Cut the perfect edge with the SHUR-LINE Edge Like A Pro!The SHUR-LINE Edge Like A Pro ceiling and trim paint edger is designed to be quicker, more accurate and easier to clean that traditional edgers. It has an ergonomic swivel handle and is also threaded for attachment on any standard pole. Keeping the wheels on the edger is easy as it features a retractable guide that lifts the wheels out of the way when paint is being applied. The design allows mess-free loading with the proper amount of paint. Clean up is simple as the reusable (after cleaning) pad can be released with the push of a button.



With these handy tools under our belts we will have our house fresh and looking like new in no time.

  1. I think I may have said that I "like" Rubbermaid on FB then added my twitter handle. It should have been my name Amy M.
