U Stripe Paint Designer Tool Reveiw & Giveaway

Spring is finally arriving! At least it is in my neck of the woods! That means time to clean up the house and fix it all up! One fun project to tackle is painting! And one thing I like to do is adding stripes! They give your walls dimension and looks so nice! But it can be really difficult to get them straight and even.  That is why I love the U Stripe It design tool!

They sent me one of their tools to use.  Truth be told, I am not the family handyman, my husband is.  And since he has lots of experience painting I thought I would let him check it out!  What was really cool is that you can make any kind of stripes, including diagonal.  I haven't seen anything like this, and on other painting jobs my husband has always had to meticulously measure the stripes and tape them off.  This tool allows you to get the perfect size and make the job a lot easier. They even sent us 2 rolls of the blue painters tape! That gave us the tools we needed to get the job done-all we had to do was get the paint!

This video shows how the tool works, much better than I can explain it to you!!:
The U Stripe Design tool is only $27.95 and right now you can get a free roll of painters tape when you buy it! This a great deal for the tool because you can use and reuse it so many times! The tool was created by John Menendez, a painter for the last 30 years.  He used it on his jobs, and when others saw it, they thought it would be easy for anyone to use and convinced him to market the product. This turned the work of the professional look of stripes into a job for the average person! His son Phillip Menendez is the distributor for the tool.

I love this product because it reduces the time it takes to have a great design, and it saves a TON of money! Doing it yourself is almost always going to be cheaper, especially if you have the right tools to do the job.  And since this tool is easy to use, anyone can do it!  And you can do every room in the house, with really cool designs.  Click here to see what others have done with the UStripe It tool!

  1. I learned that John Menendez, the inventor/painter, invented this tool to make his job and your job easier, quicker and better when painting stripes. Thanks!
