Brush and Trowel turns 3!
Thank you to our customers!

It was three years ago this week that I took the big leap from being an applicator to being a retailer. Brush & Trowel has grown steadily, we have great people on board (Lissa and Cynthia) and most of all thank you to all our paint contractors, designers, builders, re-modelers and all those in the trades and our DIY aficionados for making Brush & Trowel your home.
