Juniper-ash Decorating at the 2012 National Painting and Decorating Show


This week the Juniper-ash team took a break from their usual decorating and took in a show – the National Painting & Decorating Show 2012 held at the Ricoh Arena in Coventry.

We made some new friends, caught up with old and enjoyed a wealth of free paintbrushes, sample pots of paint, t-shirts, masking tape and sanding blocks.

We equipped the team with new rollers, a spray paint system and were tempted by telescopic ladders, we dallied at Dulux, perused Purdy paintbrushes and relived the Brewers team of a few free cupcakes – well, it was hungry work.

We caught up with old favourites Eco Ezee at their stall which we were pleased to see gathered a lot of interest throughout the day, with their eco friendly paint trays and gorgeous paintbrushes we at Juniper-ash Decorating can’t get enough of their products, we even took the opportunity to stock up on a few.

Eco paint was the hot product of this year’s show with several stalls advertising new ranges of eco friendly, non toxic, hypo allergenic paints. Our favourite find of the show were a company advertising such a range called Mythic but we loved them so much we’ve prepared a whole blog of their own so check back next week to find out just what makes Mythic so magical.
Colourtrend were another eco paint company we came across, based in Ireland, the stall was manned by some lovely irish men clearly as passionate about paint as we are, the company is now launching itself in the UK with its range of water based paints mixed with linseed oil, the paint itself is smooth to apply and even has a pleasant floral smell to it – we’ll be keeping an eye on them for the future.
