Belt Bucket

Belt BucketLately I’ve been swamped with all kinds of new home improvement products and tools to review. So, I thought it might be fun to start featuring some really cool new tool ideas. The first one to catch my eye was the Belt Bucket by PBP Industries.

If you’ve ever painted from a ladder you know that it’s never easy finding a comfortable, reliable, sturdy way of holding your paint bucket. I’ve spent countless hours perched on ladders painting trim, siding, drywall and ceilings and I typically hold a paint bucket in one hand and the brush in another. This is why I think this great new Belt Bucket is such a great idea!
