For Painters By Painters

For Painters By Painters

If you have spent time on Paint Life TV, in the Paint Life Supply Co. store, or on any of The Idaho Painters' social media platforms, then you probably have seen the term we came up with called For Painters by Painters. Most of you probably know what this is all about, but if you do not, let me explain.

Paint Life is the brand created by The Idaho Painter several years ago with the dream of having a brand that stood for something important. A brand that wanted to gather painters together worldwide to help and support each other in many ways. Chris and Lisa Berry sat down one evening in their log cabin to try to come up with a phrase that clearly stated what the mission of Paint Life, Paint Life Supply Co., and Paint Life TV was all about. It dawned on us that Educate, Empower, and Equip represented our mission—a three-word phrase created and adopted by The Idaho Painter.

With the creation of the Paint Life Supply Co. store by Chris and Lisa Berry with a mission to equip painters worldwide with painting tools to make them faster and more efficient, we discovered many talented and creative painters were inventing tools to make our painting lives easier. Paint Life truly is painters worldwide coming together to better our craft. To help support those painters developing new tools, Lisa and I came up with the term For Painters by Painters.

Moreover, Painters by Painters is genuinely what it says. A painter or tradesmen inventing a tool to help us all represents this slogan and is part of Paint Life. The Idaho Painter, Paint Life TV, and Paint Life Supply Co. want to help support those painters creating these tools or products. Our mission is to help them fulfill their dreams of selling their tools or products to those who can and want to use them.

I get hundreds of tools and products sent to me every year, and not all can make the cut of being in my painting trailer, but occasionally, a product that is a true game changer comes along. We want to help support those who have solved a problem, created a tool worth going to the trailer for, and are painters with a passion for our trade. For Painters by Painters are tools and products in Paint Life Supply Co. that have passed the test and are worth the purchase.

As a painter, the undeniable thrill of resolving issues and producing stunning works on varied surfaces cannot be denied. But it is even more rewarding to see other artists stand up to the plate, invent, and create tools that completely change how we work. Helping Painters near me is more than just an idea; it's a potent, locally driven movement that promotes cooperation, support, and tradesmanship excellence.

The world of painting is broad and diverse, and talented painters near me always look for solutions to daily problems. Painters find inspiration in their daily job and put their ideas into practice, demonstrating that creativity is alive and well. Each tool, from minor adjustments to ground-breaking creations, reflects the creativity and inventiveness of artists dedicated to improving their profession's art and science.

Hi Chris ,first of all thankyou for your tips. I can only imagine the amount of work that goes into your youtube videos ,over & above your business so you should know its appreciated as I’ve been watching for awhile now. I’ve been a builder in CA. Over 30 years however I did all the surrounding work while my father(best friend) sprayed. It was nice finding a believer that I could learn from since losing dad I’m working my way from the funk. So I’m remodeling my home & about to spray living room ,entry,&dining 500sq.ft.with vaulted ceilings. Using sherwin williams whisper wh ceilings ,cotton grey walls as if I’m not experiencing enough anxiety I just realized both emerald latex labels have satin on them when I asked for flat & matte. Yes my bad for not catching their mistake at counter & now it’s been about a month since purchase. Cans are unopened can these be made to work or will I need to repurchase. Originally I just wanted your thoughts on spraying ceilings first then masking since I’m gonna need to spray in that order. Ceiling original light texture & walls upgraded to level5. How should I go about& should I caulk ceiling tape due to the texture. Started to write only about your thoughts on my order & a tight line till realizing mistake wow. God is good,at least I know now. Thoughts appreciated,ty & Blessings to you&family sincerely Rich
