 Want to make painting faster & easier? Check out our review of the HomeRight PaintStick EZ-Twist Paint Roller Applicator here!

Do you have a room in your home that you had always wanted to change? For me, it was our master bedroom. Ever since we bought our home in 2009 I have hated how poorly the room was painted. It had the potential to be amazing but the previous owners just really blew it when we left. They were in such a hurry they didn’t bother trying to match the color of the walls, so there was three different shades of yellow.  After some discussion, my husband and I decided it was time to finally redo our bedroom, including painting the walls. To my delight, we quickly picked out a paint color and we bought paint before either of us changed our minds. As we were preparing our room for painting, I was asked by HomeRight if I would like to review their PaintStick EZ-Twist Paint Roller Applicator and QuickPainter Pad Edge Painter. Once we read how it could speed up painting our large master bedroom, I couldn’t wait to try out these two painting tools!

PaintStick EZ-Twist Paint Roller Applicator: What is It?

Want to take the pain out of painting the interior walls of your home? Make painting an enjoyable, fun experience with the PaintStick EZ-Twist Paint Roller Applicator! With this innovative paint stick, you can avoid unnecessary messes, as well as the need for using trays since the stick draws paint directly from the can. Just put the special lid on your paint can, fill the tube by pulling the handle, and you are ready to paint! If you need more paint while rolling, just turn the handle and get the right amount of paint you need for the walls, avoiding dripping and mess all over your floors. With its extended handle, you can even easily reach high ceilings or walls, allowing you to paint your room quickly and painlessly. With this roller, the hardest part is actually waiting for the paint to dry! Once you have tried this roller, you will never use traditional paint tools again for wall painting!  

PaintStick EZ-Twist Paint Roller Applicator: Overall

While I knew that the PaintStick EZ-Twist Paint Roller Applicator was going to decrease our paint time, I didn’t expect it to drastically cut it. When I mean drastic, I mean we painted two large walls in our room within two hours, and that was with us learning how to use the tools and moving things around the room to make way for the dropcloths. The last time we did a similar project in our house, it took me four hours to get a wall completely finished and looking right. With the PaintStick, we were easily painting our large wall without any mess or fuss. It really was super easy. At first, I was nervous trying to even fill the stick myself, but after my husband made me try it, I was having fun and painting on my own. The roller cover that comes with it even makes it easy to keep going without making a mess. All you do is adjust it and you can avoid painting the ceiling or wallboards. You really have to try to make a mess with this thing. After painting with the PaintStick, I don’t think I will be able to use a traditional roller again. Based on my own experience with this paint tool, I am delighted to give the PaintStick EZ-Twist Paint Roller Applicator an A+ rating.

    The best thing about these are ceiling painting. That is so tough and messy. Whenever I try to paint the ceiling with a traditional roller, I mess up my neck and get paint all over myself.

    I’ve used this before. It really does speed up the painting time.

    The PaintStick EZ-Twist Paint Roller would be perfect when painting the high ceilings in my home! I also like that it helps cut down on painting time!

    This could be very helpful in a few months when I paint my kitchen.

    I like the quick and easy process of the Paint Stick.I just hate the tedious nature of painting the wall edges with a brush,but using the Pad Edge Painter makes it quick and easy.The Paint Stick is an impressive product I would think about buying for my next paint project.

    It certainly looks like an easier way to paint! Painting is a real pain, so this would be good!

    I wish I had this when we painted our new house a couple of years ago. It would have saved me a lot of hassle and back pain.

    Thanks for a thorough review. I have used a similar product but the roller was much bigger and held more paint, but it was also very heavy and awkward. The PaintStick looks much more streamlined and I believe I could handle it better and really get my painting done quickly, but thoroughly.

    I need to paint and this Paintstick EZ roller sounds awesome. I always make a mess, so this mess free roller is a definite must have.

    These items are a must when painting. They really make the job easier and neater.

    I think this would be so much easier! I’m dreading the painting I have coming up.

    This product looks like a wonderful idea that I would love to try! The ceilings in our house need painted like a year ago- I have been dreading it, but this looks like just the tool we need to make the job a lot more manageable- great products!

    This homeright paintstick looks like the perfect tool to help me paint my dining room. The room has a high ceiling and really needs some sprucing up for the summer.

    This sounds like it would make painting any room so much easier. What a great idea. I sure hope I win this as I have alot of painting to do. Thank you for the opportunity

    I would love any painting item that can help save me time while painting. We are needing to paint our nursery for our baby. I would love to try this out to see how it works. It looks very simple to use, and I love the splash guard on the roller idea.

  21. Clarence Compton May 14, 2014 at 3:12 pm - Reply

    This would be great for everything that it is possible to roll. It would be the best for ceilings. Adjustable length and NO DRIP!

    I really like using these for painting the ceiling especially, it makes it so much easier reaching those high ceilings.

  23. Ms Gretchen Ann Luper May 15, 2014 at 3:04 am - Reply

    Just from watching the videos this is definitely something I want to have before we start our painting job. I know it will make the job easier.

    We have a log cabin and have to stain the entire house, inside and out. Neither my husband or I have ever done this. We’re not even quite sure where to begin. I love the easy extension on the pole. That would come in so handy.

    I like the quick and easy part. Anything to make painting easier is wonderful. Your review of this product is great. Thanks so much.

    I think this would be perfect for painting our popcorn ceilings. I hate them but we are stuck with them for now.

    I’ve been putting off painting my master bedroom because it is a huge room with high cathedral ceilings and a pain to paint. But, having a tool like the HomeRight PaintStick EZ-Twist Paint Roller Applicator would help a lot with my anxiety level over such a daunting task. Thanks for the review.

    I hate the mess of loading a paint brush. This would make my projects so much quicker. I’m wanting to paint every room except one in my house so I know the paintstick would really save me time and frustration!

    This would have really come in handy when were in the midst of our master bedroom/bath makeover and had to paint every wall in a 500 sq foot area. Just the thought of not having to reach and strain is awesome!

    This roller would be the God send of all for painting ceilings.
    Reading through the review,it is hard to believe that you
    can actually paint two rooms in two hours.

    • Susan Bewley May 19, 2014 at 11:26 pm - Reply

      I wish it would be that great – it was 2 very large walls. Our room though is something like 14′ x 11 with vaulted ceilings so it is very sizeable!

  31. shawna kinney May 20, 2014 at 4:52 am - Reply

    this looks very easy to use and I would love to give it a try! My daughter has really been wanting her room painted and this would really help.

    we have a fireplace in our livingroom which keeps us very cozy in cold weather, but the walls get so dirty. This roller would be great to have, Make the painting job go a lot faster.

    I have a lot of painting to do this summer. Sure could use some help with 3 bedrooms and a bathroom. Thanks for the opportunity to win!

    I love this! I used to have one, someone walked off with it. They sure make painting easier. I would love to win one! Just make sure you clean it well after using it.

    I have awkward areas to paint and this PaintStick sounds ideal. I also like the splatter guard when you paint ceilings. My whole house needs the ceilings painted. The way the paint is loaded and unloaded is fantastic.

    This would be a LIFE saver for me!!! We werent able to paint when we first moved it but now we can (new landlords). They painted each room with FLAT white…or heck it might even be just a primer for all I know, but it SUCKS!! I cant wipe anything off of it and with living here for almost 9 years now the walls look gray. EWWW!! I would love to paint but its so intimidating since all day its just me and our 2 year old. My husband hardly has off so it’s all basically up to me…and im only 5 feet. :/ With this I would actually be able to paint by myself!!!

    These tools look great. I really need to do some painting but the drama has held me back.

  41. Rachel C May 26, 2014 at 3:17 pm - Reply

    I have been not great at painting in the past, so I would love to try this tool. I need to do some painting before we can hopefully put our house on the market.

  42. RICHARD HICKS May 26, 2014 at 11:39 pm - Reply

    I did a little painting today and it is messy. This paintstick would make it much more pleasant than using a brush!

  43. ellen beck May 27, 2014 at 1:36 am - Reply

    I like the way it ‘loads’ piant and doesnt drip or spatter. Thats a huge selling point for me!

  44. laurie nykaza May 27, 2014 at 4:52 am - Reply

    I need to repaint my hallway, master bath and bedroom and this makes it look really easy to do. My husband hates to paint I like how it sucks the paint from the can and then you just paint so simple.

    I want to paint my ceilings . I have arthritis and reaching over my head is very difficult.These would be a blessing to me.

    We have used one of these before and I really like them. The handle extends longer which is great. They are so easy to use too. Make painting easier for me. Nice review.
