You never know who you are going to run into at the Asbury Park Boardwalk Studio.

I am a huge fan of the show, Shark Tank. I give the entrepreneurs a lot of credit for believing in their products to the point where they are willing to get grilled by some fierce investors. As you know, I like DIY projects and one of my favorite products is the Paint Brush Cover. Sometimes, it takes a few days to finish a paint project. I would have to wash the paint brushes, dry them and for some reason, they were never quite the same. So, I would usually throw them out the next day and continue my project with a new brush. With the Paint Brush Cover, I can store the brush without washing it and the next day it would be ready for me to continue the painting project as if I never took a break. This has made my life so much easier, so I bought the Roller Cover too.

What does this have to do with Shark Tank? Well, the inventor of the Paint Brush Cover, Sal DePaola pitched the product on Shark Tank and got a deal with Lori Greiner. She knows instantly if the product is a “hero” or a “zero.” So, when I saw him walking down the boardwalk in Asbury, I recognized him immediately and had to tell him how much I love the product. I asked him what it was like working with the Queen of QVC and he said she’s really “hands-on” and an absolute pleasure. I wonder if he would feel the same way if he got a deal from “Mr. Wonderful.”

Lori has said repeatedly that she likes to invest in products that solve a problem. If you have any painting projects around the house, I highly recommend the Paint Brush Cover. This is a problem-solver. You will thank me!
