Hmmmm….why do I need this set?!?!? Well, that seems like a silly question to me but I suppose I can state the obvious…so I can enter to win…I need this because Purdy is the best, and to be the best, you need to use the best…so there you have it!

Well, I would need these paintbrushes to embark on my New Year’s plans to tackle a room a month. I have used Purdy brushes before, as well as lesser quality ones. And that’s one mistake I won’t repeat. Using poor quality paint brushes, that is : ) Thanks for the opportunity!

Well,since my last purdy brush accidently got left outside by he who remains nameless,to finish the trim work in my den, I sure could use me some purdy brushes. Thanks for the chance to win.

I need these Purdy paintbrushes because they are the
only paintbrushes to use if you want great results with
your painting! They are the best.They don’t shed,
they hold their shape and give a perfect smooth finish
with every brush stroke.

I would LOVE to try Purdy brushes. I have used cheap brushes to only pull out bristles out of my paint job and few high end brushes, but mostly used rollers, paint pads & brushes in the past. I have a lot of painting projects I want to do before February that I would LOVE to try the Purdy brushes with. I have to redecorate every room in my new home and am considering creating my own blog to document all my hard work. and share my successes and failures. So after reading a lot of tutorials on blogs, I think I have learned better ways to paint my home. I can’t wait! Now, to decide on the colors……so hard!

I would love to have a set of Purdy Brushes for cutting in on the edges, in the corners, around the windows, and whatnot in my new office/craftroom-to-be. I am setting it up as a workspace for my new etsy/artfire business. I need inspiration around me – 4 white walls are too bland for me. I want teal walls! I also want to add some faux frames for around my poster frames and inspiration-board. The Purdy brushes would sure come in handy for that!
