Faithfull Decorating Products: A Review!


I am thrifty when it comes to decorating products, to be fair I try and be thrifty on most things in life but decorating products seem to be where I really like to save money. 

I will almost always buy the cheapest but best quaility I can find for the job, be it a roller and tray set from Poundland or the paint from Wilkos, I always try and save us some money so we can have a nice house to life in but on a budget. 

Recently we have been doing some major decorating in our front room/kitchen, which has required my Dad to build a dividing wall and a chimney breast and because of this the whole room needed redecorating. Well we were lucky when FFX Tools got in contact offering us anything on their website in exchange for a review. 

As detailed in an earlier post, we got to look through their website and we decided on ordering some decent decorating products that we can then use again and again. Going through the website we decided on the Faithfull Range of products which we ordered everything from except the paintbrush can holder. 

The first product I used was the Filling Knife. It has a nice wooden handle and is stiff enough to fill properly but also has enough flexibility in it to make sure the filler is nice and smooth against the wall.

The Faithfull paintbrushes we used were part of a multi pack and to be honest as a result I think the quality suffered. Although the did a good job the bristles kept coming out and I have used cheaper brushes in the past that were better quality. That being said for the price the five pack we got were good for the money they would have cost. 


My favourite product by far though were the rollers. We ordered the roller frame and the sleeves separately and I wasn’t disappointed in the quaility of either. The sleeves were of great quaility and gave a great finish on our walls. As for the frames I choose something I knew we were going to be able to use again and again and these didn’t disappoint. The wooden handles had finger grins cuts into them and this made for a really easy hold on the handle. On the bottom of the handle there is a hole to which you can attach an extension pole, should you ever need to. Our ceilings are so low this is not necessary for us. Both the sleeves and the frame washed up lovely all ready for their next use. 

I would definitely recommend Faithfull Decorating Products. Their price means they are affordable but the quality of everything we used (with the exclusion of the paintbrushes) means that these are products that will give you a great finish time after time after time. 

These products are available to purchase from the FFX Tools Website

FFX Website and Delivery Review 


We were recently asked by the lovely people at FFX, they asked us if we could place an order through their website and then review it for them.
The Website

We used the website through one of our phones and found the mobile site extremely easy to use and we easily found what we were going to order. On the mobile site there is a clear menu that is split into four categories: Tools, Hardware & Consumables, Clothing & Protection and Outdoors & Garden. Each of these categories are then split into sub-categories making it extremely easy to find exactly what we wanted.

We placed an order for some painting and decorating bits, including rollers, paintbrushes and a tray.

We’ve recently had some minor building work done and as a result our front room needed some painting done.

The Delivery

Once we had placed the order we got a confirmation email stating that the order was being processed and then one stating that it had been dispatched.

Two days later we received the order. Amazing speed and service.

The order came as compact as they could get it considering what we had ordered and as such our postman could actually fit it in his post bag. The items were rapped in plastic and well taped in. As the items we ordered weren’t breakable that was more then sufficient and also good for the environment as there was no wasted packaging.

We were pleasantly surprised with the ease of use of the website and the speed of the delivery, granted not that quick if you work in the trade but there were other delivery options for next day etc.. but more then quick enough for someone that does DIY in our house and that’s it.
