Purdy paint brushes

Purdy paint brushes will ruin other paint brushes for you- it is that simple. They are handmade in the U.S. with modified nylon bristles that stand straight and apply paint in smooth, consistent swaths. Buy a pack of Purdy paint brushes and then hold one up next to any of the old brushes you have lying around and you will see that there is really no comparison.

Paint eight doors at a time

Door Stands from HingeStand are the ultimate door painting system. The stands use the hinges and pins from the doors to hold them in place and then small plastic separators to keep them up away from the floor, making it easy for every inch to be quickly and efficiently painted with a sprayer. To buy these door stands and upgrade your door-painting game, click here.

Pocket-sized color matcher

The Pallete Pico makes color-matching paints a much simpler process than it has any right to be. This little device can instantly match paint to thousands of colors from top paint brands such as Behr, Sherwin Williams, and Glidden. The Pico and its corresponding smartphone app can even tell you the exact RGB and CMYK of a particular paint, removing pretty much all guess-work.

Here's another great way to keep track of paint colors.
