The Winslow Paint Company on Bainbridge Island

Thank You Winslow Paint Company!  . . . and by the way, that is Benjamin Moore Lemon Sorbet on the wall.

The Winslow Paint Company on Bainbridge Island

I love you little Orlando Brush!

We are doing a little painting.  I believe in professional painters, I really and truly do.  We hired a painter to paint the exterior of our house, our vaulted ceilings and our kitchen and family rooms.

However, I have painted my fair share of bedrooms and bathrooms.  Big square rooms are pretty doable for me, especially when you are putting on new trim.   But, in every room, in this home anyway, I have had to do the dreaded cutting-in at the ceilings.

I have watched my pro painter paint and tried to pick up his tips.  Of course I have also Googled and read.  But, the other night I was tired and at the end of my rope trying to cut clean lines . . . I knew the painter was a phone call away.

But, the next day, I was buying paint at Wisnlow Paint and I asked the owner  what brush she recommended for cutting-in.  I was guessing it was going to be one of those $30 brushes, of course.   But without hesitation, she led me to a one inch brush by Orlando that  was only $8.99. And can I tell you that brush just sings and I was able to finish my project without going bonkers. And, it washed up so easily (my husband can testify to the number of brushes we have tossed because I find them too difficult to clean, ugh).

In fact, the Winslow Paint Company has played a large part in the remodel of your home.  In the very beginning I consulted with Mary, who picked the exterior paint colors.  And because of Winslow Paint I have become a loyal Benjamin Moore customer.  I am a pretty budget conscious gal, so I know, in comparison to Behr it costs more.  However,  there is no better paint for ease and coverage  – especially in high moisture areas like a bathroom or kitchen.  Their paint is just more durable and superior. Winslow Paint was also the go-to-store for our recent fence staining project – the Cabot Stain made our new cedar fence a neighborhood stand-out (in a good way).

So thank you Winslow Paint Company for always being there to answer all my questions and shake my year old paint cans!

Update: The Winslow Paint Company owners and sold their store to and it was renamed Peninsula Paint

We love our new cedar fence.
