So from time to time you get enticed by creative advertising on TV… and I like to try new products out here and there especially when it comes to home improvement.
I don’t know about the rest of you but I have been seeing these infomercials for the new Point N Point system. It’s supposed to make it so you can paint an entire room in less than an hour because it holds 5x the paint as a traditional roller! It’s supposed to replace edger products like Surline edger. Amazing! Right? Wrong!!
I actually came across Point N Paint at Ross… where it was $5.99 for everything. I thought, what the heck, for that price I’ll give it a whirl. So yesterday I started my master bedroom paint project and I tried this
amazing product. Not only did it NOT hold 5x the paint… I would say it held half the amount of paint as a traditional roller. The paint I got ended up being really thin to begin with (that is a story for another day) and it took me nearly 5 hours to complete because I had to do 3 coats of paint! In addition, when I placed it on the extension pole (so I didn’t have to break out the ladder like they claim) the pad spun around in circles…. how am I to get a clean edge with it spinning like that? When I did use it around the edges it leaked all over the place.
In the end I broke out my tried and true roller,surline edger and yes… my ladder.
