    I haven’t used your brushes, however I have my eye on the flat brush. I usually paint my larger projects to keep and smaller ones I sell. However that may change soon.

    I have followed Larrisa for a couple years now I think. One of the things that impresses me the most about her, beside the wonderful furniture she creates, is that she always answers questions if asked on her blog & her Facebook page. She takes the time (which I doubt she has a lot of!) to care about her followers & that isn’t always the case with people that do blogs. I feel like she is a friend! I shared this on Facebook.

    Larissa is so talented and very engaged with her followers. Sharing her gifts with others is a blessing to those of us who love to learn how to refurbish treasures…or as she would say, “trashures”. I would really like to try Zibra brushes on my projects. Thanks for the opportunity to Win! I will be sharing on Facebook.

    I love the way she did the dressing table with the large round mirror. And I found it interesting to learn about her experience with different paints.

    I am happy to share the blog about her amazing work on my Facebook page.

    I haven’t had the chance to try the bruses yet! I have seen them used in lots of your blog posts, and they look awesome! That angle brush would come in handy!

    I follow several bloggers but Larissa is my standout favorite. Impossible to pick a favorite but the pretty teacart is very near the top. I’ve wanted to try those brushes as I paint a lot of furniture myself.

    More than liking any specific project of Larissa’s, I love her attitude. She is always a blessing, I learn so much more than how to update furniture, she is so generous with her talent and heart, I am always uplifted after reading her posts. I’ve never had a real quality brush, I always bought what my budget afforded but Larissa says these brushes last and are like non other, I’d be thrilled with any one, thank you!

    I love Larissa! Her talent is awesome! I look forward of seeing what she does to old broken down project and brings them back to life.
    I share her ideas with my daughter and we will be working on saving pieces during the summer. I am glad Larissa is also available to answer any questions
    and concerns that I have.

    I’ve been following Larissa for quite awhile, and I like her because each of her projects is unique. Too many furniture painters make every piece look the same and I find that boring. Prodigal Pieces is one of the few blogs I have stayed subscribed to because of her variety. Besides, she’s just a really neat lady! I shared on Facebook.

    It is so exciting to see Larissa featured on the Zibra Blog! Yay, Larissa! Larissa is the one who introduced me to the Zibra brushes and I have 3 so far…next purchase will be the square one. 🙂 Larissa has such an eye for pieces that would otherwise be on the trash and/or burn pile, she really brings back the beauty of these unappreciated pieces. I shared this on Facebook to show off my “blog friend”. 🙂
