BRIETIS Chalk Paint Wax Brush | Premium Boar Bristles, Smooth Coverage with Annie Sloan Quality for Furniture Painting, Waxing | Soft, Durable Bristles | Folkart, Stencils, Large Round Chalked Brushes

We have some older furniture, and before replacing it with new, I figured I would try waxing, or painting it.  Therefore I was happy to receive the Brietis Chalk Paint Wax premium boar bristle Brush.

It is suitable for folkart, stencils, painting, and waxing.  The bristles are soft, and tightly packed.

A little from the Amazon webpage:

  •  ‘Made from natural & high-quality boar bristles (NOT synthetic) that’s soft, durable and smooth coverage to increase your productivity for the most efficient chalk paint project
  • High-quality bristles selected, through the twice-boiled and the professional improvement process during 35 days to create the maximum bristle retention and the firmness for multiple uses
  • Compatible with all types of colors, paint, wax such as clear, dark, soft wax … The brush can work with a variety of furniture, home decor, wood, cabinets, chalkboard, etc.’

The handle is easy to hold, and the bristles allow the wax/paint/chalk to collect the product, and evenly distribute it.  It is easy to clean, and has a loop, so that it can be hung up.  This way the bristles are hanging away from other items, and not being squashed up.

There is a ‘FREE EBOOK INCLUDED: A Comprehensive Guide: Chalk Paint for Beginners, as well at a 60 DAY SATISFACTION GUARANTEE.

I did receive my brush for free, and can honestly say that it is exceptional quality.

At this moment my husband

doesn’t have anything that needs testing.  He did put the batteries in the back, and check it out.  I will be putting this precision tool in his storage shed, for next time he needs it.

I did receive it for free, and my husband is extremely pleased to have this tool.

My husband is really happy when he gets a product, as it is usually me.  I figured that the MECO Magnetic Screwdriver Set is a great gift for any man, no matter what age he is.

The minute it arrived he opened it up, and pressed the button, on the front.  The plastic front lifted up, and it went into a stand position.  Here he was able to take out the handle of the screwdriver, and the extension, that can also be used to twist/turn if necessary.

I have no idea what all the bits are for, so had to go to the Amazon webpage, to check it out.

KevenAnna Pair of Premium Professional 2-way Wooden Shoe Trees, Wooden Shoe Stretcher for Men or Women (Large)

The KevenAnna Premium Professional 2-way Wooden Shoe Trees are so much nicer, and easier to use, that all the ways my mother tried to stretch our shoes 55-60 years ago.  In England, we had very little money when I was young, and my mother would try to stretch our shoes to last another few months.

Now I don’t have to do that, but do have shoes that pinch, or are not wide enough for me.  I have had surgeries on my feet, and bones removed from my big toes.

These are so easy to use, and come with a one page instructional guide, with diagrams.  My feet vary in size, and one is a half size bigger than the other one.  I either have one shoe slightly loose, or one that pinches my toes.

So I put the wooden shoe tree in the shoe, and screwed it enough to stretch it slightly.  I left it in for 24 hours, and then removed it.  Very straight forward.

I have to say that the shoe

fits me so much better now.  My worrying about buying shoes won’t be a problem in the future.

A little from the Amazon webpage:

HOW TO USE:

Your New Two-Way Shoe Stretcher Enables You to STRETHCH Both the Length & Width of a left or right shoe.
For Spot Stretching, simply insert any of the removable ‘Bunion & Corn’ Plugs in the appropriate holes where relief is required.

1) INSERT STRETCHER IN SHOE
Turn plastic handle Clockwise to adjust length.
2) FOR STRETCHING LENGTH
Continue to turn plastic handle Clockwise until you begin to see surface pressure showing on the shoe. DO NOT OVERSTRETCH!
3) FOR STRETCHING WIDTH
Turn metal looped handle in a Clockwise direction until you begin to see surface pressure showing on the shoe. DO NOT OVERSTRETCH!

FOR BEST RESULTS, leave Stretcher in place for at least 24 hours. To REMOVE Stretcher, turn handles Counterclockwise.’

These are good for teenagers, and all the adults in your family.  A product you may not use every day, but useful when you do need it.

I received this product for free, and found it worked great, so wanted to share it with you.

Sogrand Post Cap, Super Bright 10 Lumen Silver Vinyl Solar Lights, Fence Lamp Deck Outdoor Post Lights, For Yard, Pathway, Dock, Driveway, Pack of 2

Do you have a pergola, posts, or places where you need to set a light on the top?  If so, then the Sogrand Post Cap Silver Solar Lights, could be just what you are looking for.

These 2 beautiful lights, are silver, and look great during the day, but so beautiful at night.  We had a lot of rainy days, here in Florida, so waited until a dry evening to take photos of them.

There is nothing you have to do for them, as they have everything you need in them. Put the lights in a sunny spot, and let the light from the sun do it’s job.  The solar panels, are the energy source, as well as a battery already in them.

Pull off the top of the lights, and turn the switch to the on position, and then push it back on.  Once it gets dark, the lights will come on.  They have this truly white, white that looks like diamonds.  The shape is just gorgeous, and they really show up well in the dark.

I was thinking,

if you have a gate to your property, these would really light up each side of it.

I really love mine, and even though I got them for free, I feel that they are worth the money.  A classy product.

I got the Liumy Digital Multimeter AC/DC Current, Voltage Resistance Meter/Tester for my husband.  He is the go to person, in our household, for anything that I don’t understand, or don’t need to know.

He told me that it is perfect for testing batteries.  So hubby opened it up, and was pleased to see that it has a protective rubber band, going all around it.  It also has a flip up stand, so that you can use it, and still have your hands free, for using both of the test leads to check the battery.

Not only can it be used on regular everyday batteries, but also on car batteries, and so much more

Liumy Laser Distance Meter 131 Ft Rangefinder, LCD Backlit Handheld Measuring Device, Level and Mute Functions for Single-distance Measurement / Continuous Measurement / Area / Pythagorean Modes

This is a product that my husband wanted.  When the Liumy Laser Distance Meter arrived, I handed it straight over to my husband.  

It comes with an Owner’s Manual, that has a quick start, Initial Operating and Settings, Distance Measurement, Functions, and Trouble Shooting.  Normally my husband doesn’t read the manual, but he had the product in one hand, and the instructions in the other.

After a few minutes, he had it working.  He was going around the house, and measuring different areas, and places.  I am wanted new furniture, and I think this will be great, as I won’t have to move the furniture, or climb on it, to measure the area I have available.

As I am not technical at all, I am giving you this information from the Amazon webpage: ‘

  • →HIGHT ACCURACY: accurate to ± 0.005 feet laser precision technology, horizontal bubble is more convenient to adjust the measurement angle, the measurement range extended to 131Ft.
  • →SILENT DESIGN AND ANTI-GLARE DESIGN: to open the mute function for indoor libraries and other places where quiet work, anti-glare design so that the rangefinder in the sun is still able to work.
  • →DURABLE AND RESONABLE DESIGN: IP54 dustproof and waterproof, pocket size. Anti-drop waterproof and dustproof, more convenient to carry.
  • →MORE INTELLIGENT DESIGN: LED backlight for dark and night use, 3 Min Automatic Shutdown and 30 seconds laser auto-off function to save power.
  • →MULTI-FUNCTION: Pythagorean method-three points, area, volume, continuous measurement, addition and subtraction, Single-distance Measurement.

My husband is very pleased with it, it looks really smart, easy to hold, and durable.  He has added it to his collection of tools.  A very happy guy.

I did receive this item at a discounted price, and wanted to let you D.I.Y guys know that these are available.

Baobado Premium Survival Bracelet-Set only $10.99 for 3-Outdoor Emergency Paracord Bracelet 5 in 1 With Compass, Flint Fire Starter, Emergency Scraper/Knife, Whistle, Rescue Rope-Perfect for Camping, Hiking, Trekking, Travel

Do you go out on your own?  Early in the morning, or in the evenings?  Then I think you should check out the Baobado Premium Survival Bracelet.  Even if you live in a town, or city, just have the whistle will make you feel safer.

If you are an outdoors person, and go camping, hiking, trekking, etc., then you will have a compass, flint fire starter, emergency scraper/knife, whistle, and the rescue rope.

There are 3 bracelets, and I can’t decide which I like the best.  The black blends in with anything, the orange is really colorful, and I love the Army green.  I am thinking that as my husband was in the Royal Air Force for 22 years, and his grandson is still in the Marines with almost 17 years under his belt, then the Army green one will go with his camouflage shorts.

It is a one size fits all, and fits my husband’s wrist perfectly.  I have mine further up my arm, but it stays well.  I do have tiny wrists, even though I have great muscles, from working out.

From the Amazon website:  ‘SUPER STRONG & DURABLE & ULTRA LIGHTWEIGHT: Has been tried & tested to a minimum Breaking Point Of 550 lbs/250 kg. You can use it from stabilize a tent to build a shelter, create hunter traps, hiking rope,

scraper tool, care a wound & many more.’  Combined with the compass, fire starter, and whistle you can’t beat the price at $10.99 for 3.

I did receive these amazing bracelets for free, and wanted to share the benefits of having them with you.
