Powder room paint (with an EZ twist!)

Hey hey all!

So a few weeks ago during our conversation a conversation with a friend I mentioned that I’ve only painted most of the rooms in our house once. She kind of laughed and didn’t believe me, but it’s true – half the house was the original color for eight years, and the master and bathroom, my stepdaughter’s room, the kitchen and family room and more have only been painted once and have stayed like that forever.

There’s a couple rooms I’ve painted like eleventy billion times though, so I think that’s what led to her confusion. But I’m on a mission and most of those other rooms I mentioned will be painted…someday?

The powder room is one of those rooms that’s been painted a lot -- five different colors to date. Two of those within the past couple of weeks. Over the course of two days. ;)

Well the folks from HomeRight contacted me a few months ago asking if I wanted to try out one of their paint sticks and I was like yeaaaahhhh!  I was so excited when they arrived and I got two! One is just a normal paint stick and one is the EZ-Twist, special!:

Home Right paint stick

I needed to get the powder room painted – there is so much other stuff to do but I’m avoiding painting that wood paneling again till I absolutely have to, so this was easy in comparison. I’ve had that blue color up there (I honestly can’t even remember what the name of it is it’s been so long), and then I experimented with the red and I just needed it all covered and DONE.

I went back and forth on colors before deciding I really wanted a nice neutral. The art I’m planning to hang and the accessories will bring in a ton of color, so I wanted a nice, clean backdrop to it all. I had half a can of the Analytical Gray (Sherwin Williams) left so I figured why not use it up!

OK so here’s the thing – it seriously took me longer to get the paint stick out of the plastic packaging than it did to figure out how to use it. ;) It wasn’t hard at all – you just take the little nozzle jobby and clip it on the side of the paint can:

Then you place the stick on it (it’s already assembled when you get it), flip a little switch, then pull back on the stick and watch the paint get sucked in!:

Home Right paint stick

The first time I used it I didn’t suck enough up in there (you want to make sure the stick is mostly full) – but you just place it back on the nozzle and pull again to fill it up more.

I gotta say, I really, really liked this tool. I talk to myself when painting and I may have mentioned a few times “this is so cool!!” to…myself:

A picture of the blogger!! Whuuut!

When I paint I have this weird fear that I will run out – even if it’s a tiny room, I will use as little on the roller as possible. You should not do this by the way. :) I end up pushing too hard to get it out of the roller on the wall, and it ends up killing my shoulders by the time I’m done.

This stick totally took care of it all for me – I just twisted as I went to get more into the roller. I was surprised at how little I had to twist too. And it went on SO stinking smooth. Every time I paint I have to watch for the lines of globby paint along the side of the roller because I push so hard. I didn’t see any while using this.

So it took me no time at all to get the walls done – seriously like ten minutes? I still had to cut in, but I realized pretty quickly that the color wasn’t what I wanted. It was too dark for what I envisioned – this color works great in our big open spaces in the house with lots of natural light, but in here it was a little drab.

So I went back to the paint deck and went with Agreeable Gray (SW) instead. I ended up cutting in first this time:

Analytical Gray Sherwin Williams

And then I used the paint stick to paint…again. :)

I LOVE it!!:

Agreeable Gray Sherwin Williams

It’s a great neutral backdrop for the room. So light and pretty, it’s just perfect. And it still pops plenty against the white wood. (Ignore the paint all over the crown, it all still needs painted and caulked from years ago. Surprised?)

I especially love how it looks against the light blue ceiling. You know how I love those painted ceilings!

I’ll probably only show you one more part of the room before the final reveal – maybe by next week?? (Crossing fingers, toes, everything.) My to do list is getting crossed out slowly but surely – but then I remember all kinds of things I need to add to it too. ;)

Overall I really liked using the paint stick and I will use it again – it made the whole process go much easier and faster. The only part that takes time is cleaning it out – but after doing it once it was much faster the second time.

The good news is there is progress in this room, the best news is the lovely folks at HomeRight are offering TWO of the PaintStick EZ-Twists to two of you! Awww. yeah!

Just leave a comment here by Thursday the 16th at 9 a.m. to be entered to win. (Leave an email too!) That’s it! (And if you’d like to pick up one yourself you can find them at Lowe’s.) Have a LOVELY day!

  14. Thanks for your review. I have painted many, many times over the years and I too am an overly pushy painter and it leaves those weird excess paint lines on the ends of the roll from pushing so hard. I have always been a little suspect of these kind of paint-in-the-roller type products but I would like to try it out now that you made it sound so simple!

  129. I'm short, and I have been putting off painting my house for years now. I hate getting on a ladder, so that's part of it. The other, is I don't have the right tools for the job. Which I usually figure out once I'm on the ladder. I'd love to try this product! Looks flawless when you use it. Hopefully, it will make my project much easier. Fingers crossed, or I'm buying one next week. Thanks for the wonderful info and for the chance to win.

  132. Regarding my post above, how do you post with your name??? I couldn't figure it out for the world!! It kept telling me I had to have a URL....I don't even know what that is! Silly me! Can anybody help me out here???? Tamarah

  133. Great post. I paint all of the time and have looked at the paint sticks while at the home improvement store. I’ve always wished that I knew someone who had actually used one to see if they worked or were just a big waste of money. Having the paint available to the roller and not fighting a paint tray that could tip over while balancing on a ladder is a really good idea. Not to mention it looks like there is a shield that would keep the paint from splattering on your head when painting the ceiling. I can imagine how fast a wall could be painted without even having to use a ladder because of the long handle that holds the paint.

    My vaulted entryway will be painted this summer and I would love to try this stick out as it would be great to load up the roller and paint a large wall area before I had to go down the ladder for more paint.

    You touched upon cleaning out the paint stick how easy it was but I would love to see another post on exactly how you cleaned and changed the roller and if you found any special tricks that worked for you since you have cleaned it out more than once. If it takes standard paint rollers or do you have to buy a special brand. I’m sure the supplier would love to see that also!

    Thanks again for the information. I love your blog and look forward to seeing all of your creative transformations that you do around the house. It’s the one blog that I read with my coffee each morning.

  134. Last time I painted I got hemorrhoid s from going up and down the ladder and standing way too long. Too much info I know. Sorry. I could use a paint stick to make the painting go faster, then maybe it won't be a "pain in the booty". :) thanks!

  153. I want to win a paint stick! That looks like fun! But not the aching shoulders and re-painting a second time b/c the 1st color didn't work out part! (ha, ha!) Seriously though, the light gray looks great. At least you can check something off.

    ReplyDelete
  155. I would love to try one of these! I always get those crazy lines too... guess I'm trying to conserve paint but it's just the wrong way to do it. I would paint my whole house again if I knew it would be easy!

  169. What an amazing tool! Replacing the paint pan?! Can I get a YEYAH?! I like the lighter color too. I have the same problem with my downstairs bath - no natural light. And the lighter paint just looks so nice and fresh.

  179. I think this is what I need to motivate me into a painting frenzy. My walls are very sad (small children equals much abuse to the walls.) Anything to make it fast and easy is good with me!

  180. I could sooo use this. I need to tackle painting our family room and it looks like this would make it much easier and faster.

  182. What an awesome product! This I WILL get if I get brave enough to paint a room again. I have a very bad back and the last room I painted (our small foyer) took me weeks. The bending over to roll the roller in the pan for more paint didn't help matters at all. This will reduce the bending tremendously!
