Stockings at Christmas are the most fun part of the day in my opinion. Coming down the stairs to see a large sock full of goodies, from candy, chocolates to items we love that are personal to our personalities.
I love that my Husband does my stocking, I feel like its such a surprise to see what he got me and some of the joke things he adds in it.
I find that Christmas stockings can sometimes be the hardest to fill and I end up putting items in each stocking that I am not really sure warrant as a gift ha ha, none the less whoever opens the their stocking in my house enjoy everything recieved. I think stockings take a little more thought and it brings back memories of my Mum who always seemed to find the most unique stocking stuffers and to this day I wish I could do the same. Great finds every year!
Well lets discuss a painter/furniture refinishers stocking.... I know as a furniture painter that Id rather gifts at times to be for my work because I am painting Monday-Friday so why not have the things I need at Christmas than things I probably wont use. These items below are my top ten
Number one item I would say is paint, paint containers fit into stockings especially 4oz and 8oz pots. Most paint companies like Country Chic Paint carry small jars and you could get a paint colour your refinisher has never used before.
Number 2. This one is a must have, all painters/refinishers has to have wood filler and you can purchase mini containers of woodfiller at Lowes or Home Depot and they fit right into stockings. You could always buy wood filler in tubes as well, maybe in a tone or brand your person has never used before
Number 3. Sanding pads are amazing to have i have so many hanging around my workshop. They are are great to use and clean easily and they create such a great finish. Definitely a stocking stuffer.
Brushes brushes and angle brushes are a must have even if you use a paint sprayer like myself. Brushes fit into stockings perfectly and I love these Country Chic Paint angle brushes, they are my favourite, so good for trim on drawers or brushing on clear coat. Must have
I use this painters plastic tape allllllll the time, everytime I have to cover up certain areas on a piece of furniture like raw wood tops, I wrap it up with this roll of tape. You can find these in different sizes on Amazon and they are awesome to have a great for a stocking stuffer.
These paint filters are the best ones I have found and always order them from Amazon. If you have a painter that spray paints then these are the filters to get. They are strong and hold a lot of paint and product and the mesh strains out any lumps needed to.
If your person is a YouTuber like myself or loves to record videos and reels and needs better voice overs, then this is the mic to use. I got this one from Amazon and I love it. It's affordable and easy to use and works great.
Country Chic sponges are the best for applying topcoats and glazes, even paint and provide a smooth clean streak free finish. I really recommend them and they fit perfectly in stockings.
NUMBER 9. The best brush soap ever!!!! Perfect for the brushes that are covered in product and need a good wash. This soap smells amazing and softens and cleans brushes. It contains natural ingredients with essential oils, perfect stocking gift for a painter
NUMBER 10. LAST BUT NOT LEAST! Country Chic Paint artist brushes. I use these brushes all the time, not only on canvases but also my furniture for the little details and drawer trims or even touch ups. Perfect pack to fit into a stocking.
So that is my complete 10 stocking ideas for a furniture painter refinisher. I hope these items gives you some ideas on what to do for Christmas for whoever you are buying for. Stockings can be difficult to fill and that is why I am here to help and provide some ideas and of course don't forget to add chocolates and all the fun goodies that do go in a stocking. Have a wonderful Christmas everyone and enjoy your Holidays!!!!!
