I have something I feel quite passionate about that I want to share with you today… but I just know that my excitement will overflow and all this info is just going to gush on out…
So perhaps I should just start at the beginning and take it slowly.
A while ago I heard about a new product that inventor Mark Lacy was planning to get into production through a kickstarter program. At the time, I didn’t even know what a kickstarter program was…
But the product Mark had invented was brilliant and I knew that I needed to find out more about it. So this is My Paint Saint – I have 3 of the prototypes.
It truly is one of those inventions that is so simple and obvious and you are left wondering… “why didn’t I think of that”.
Mark developed My Paint Saint over many years. Basically, it’s a brush in a can of paint that both stores your touch up paint and your brush, which means never having to clean your brushes. But honestly, that’s too simple… because My Paint Saint is a lot more than that!
Let’s start with the paint container. Mark used a silicone gasket, which creates a hermetic seal that locks the bristles in a moist atmosphere and prevents them from drying out. There’s a 5” synthetic brush, with its stainless steel ferrule that won’t rust and the ergonomic six-inch soft rubber handle…. oh, and let’s not forget the drip catcher attached to the handle!
There’s built in ledges for removing paint and I love the large white space on the label where you can write down the colour and paint code etc.
Every home gets unavoidable damage to painted walls… especially when you have kids… right!
I’m sure we are all guilty of putting that repair job off because the thought of finding a suitable brush, the right paint can (that hasn’t gone hard) and the clean up afterwards, just seems like too much hassle. But having a My Paint Saint filled with your touch up paint puts an end to all of that.
We put the My Paint Saint to the test here in the resort. What could be more perfect than 20 townhouses with guests coming and going every day?
Wall damage is unavoidable for us, especially when guest are carrying in luggage and suitcases. What’s more, we only have a small window of opportunity to get the townhouses looking perfect between guests departure at 10 am and new arrivals at 2 pm.
We started by getting our housekeepers to document any marks they found while cleaning. Then my hubby would come along with his My Paint Saint, unscrew the closing ring and attach it to the handy thread at the bottom. He’d take out the brush, wiping the excess paint on the ledges provided, touch up the wall and put the brush back into the pot. DONE… in less than 20 seconds!!!
No prying open old paint cans, no washing or storing paint brushes and no having to worry about messy drips or paint spills!
We no longer put off the maintenance painting. It gets done straight away, which keeps the resort looking perfect all the time. The My Paint Saint actually saves us time and money too. We are no longer continuously buying painting brushes or losing valuable time in clean up procedures. Honestly, no one likes cleaning paint brushes and I think that’s why we so often put off doing these jobs.
Our only problem was, we both wanted to do the touch ups, but we found a solution. I let hubby tend to the resort and I have my own ‘My Paint Saint’ filled with Dulux Antique White for our home.
After using the Paint Saint for several months, our finding was that we LOVE this product. We have no hesitation in recommending it and we’ll even go as far as to say “every home needs 1 or more My Paint Saints”.
The My Paint Saint would make a great gift idea for a house warming, for that hard to buy for DIY’er or anyone who wants to keep their home looking great all the time.
My Paint Saint – the kickstarter
SO… I bet you are like me and have never heard of a KICKSTARTER program? This is how Kickstarter works – it’s a mission to help bring creative projects to life by giving inventors a platform to showcase their products. My Paint Saint is being offered through Kickstarter so Mark, the inventor, can bring his ingenious product to a hardware store near you! Buying a My Paint Saint or a set now will go a long way to reaching the goal and getting MPS manufactured and on the shelves. You can help launch this fantastic product and be the first one of your friends to have a My Paint Saint by visiting the ‘My Paint Saint’ page HERE. There’s more information about the My Paint Saint on their website.
We are giving a My Paint Saint to 7 lucky readers. Simply click here to be entered. Type in your email so we can contact you if you win! One winner a day from 1st to 7th July will be contacted by email. Good Luck!
We are also giving away My Paint Saints on bHome ~ the app. So pop on & look for your message to enter!
For this week (1st – 7th July) – if you purchase a MPS or a set of them, make sure you come back and leave a comment here on this post of Shabby Art Boutique and you will get 10% cash back. That means a single MPS will cost $18 (Including shipping in the US).
With the KICKSTARTER program, you pay now (credit card) and delivery will be in November…. you know what I’m thinking, yep, just in time for Christmas!
The product is shipping out of the US, so international customers will be responsible for customs and shipping, minus U.S. shipping that’s included in this package. Mark plans to ship to warehouses overseas to reduce the costs.
We think you’ll love the ‘My Paint Saint’ as much as we do.
Disclaimer – Mark provided me with 3 prototypes to try, but all opinions expressed here are completely my own.
