I love it when a great idea goes mainstream. Paint sticks have been around on TV ads for years, but how nice to have one that I can buy locally and get parts for easily! Take a look at the picture of the paint roller to the left. Notice anything missing? How about the paint tray? Black and Decker’s PaintStick features a syringe-like handle that holds the paint, eliminating the need for the paint tray. Trayless painting means no more spills (and who HASN’T spilled the paint tray before?). One load of paint can cover an 8′ x 8′ section. The PaintStick system comes with a splatter shield, a paint can cover, a roller cover, and a fill tube. Retails for $25.
