Favorite DIY Products
Many of you have emailed me in the past and asked about products I used on a makeover or what kind of tool is best for a certain project so I’ve started putting together a list of my favorite diy tools. Now this isn’t to say these are the absolute best and they are all I use. You guys know I use a variety of paints, primers, tools, etc. Sometimes I lean heavily towards a certain product or brand because I have found in my diy doings that they work best for me.
This list is also a page on my website now. If you look in the toolbar you will see the title of the page DIY Tools. So the list will always be there. I plan to add to it….just ran out of time. From time to time I may find products I like better ….so I’ll change the list to reflect that.
I showcased the products as Amazon links because some of you have told me you can’t find certain products in your area. If you order any of the products after you click the links then I will receive a small (very small) percentage of the sell. I just wanted to let ya’ll know this up front.
After each product I’ve listed a post or two where I used the product. Just click any “pink link” to see the posts.
Rust-Oleum spray paint is the best. Let me say it again! Rust-Oleum spray paint is the best. Heirloom White is my new favorite color.
Here are a couple of projects where I used the paint….
My go-to painters tape is Frog Tape. I love the Shape Tape too.

Chevron Tape projects Sailboat Inspired Nautical Pub Table
Rusty Iron Table with Painted Table Top
At one time I used the little chip brushes for all my paint projects but not so much anymore. They lose “hairs” like crazy. I use them for rustic signs and a few other things but not for furniture. I prefer Purdy brushes for my furniture projects.
I use several primers and Kilz is one of the best. I only use latex paint and latex primer (water-based).
Have you found products that work best for you? Want to share? Please Do!
Have a great day, Kathy
