What is PIY, and what is a PIY’er?


PIY stands for PAINT IT YOURSELF and a PIY’er is a person joining the huge trend of being a Paint it Yourself’er.

PIY Paint Products are manufactured in Merritt, British Columbia by 2 sisters and their husbands. Laurie and Blain Turmel, Cindy and Bill Moyes are proud to offer these high quality furniture painting products. Each can of paint is hand mixed by Bill, one gallon at a time and then put into jars. Such personal care is taken to make sure each jar is perfect, each label is at the exact height to produce a very professional display. Laurie and Cindy realize people do not paint 9-5 Monday to Friday. So they don’t work 9-5 Monday to Friday. Business is open 7 days a week, 14 hours a day for customer and retailer requests.

Laurie has painted furniture since she was a young girl. She understands! If you get frustrated with your piece it will go in the back of the garage. If it is stressful to paint, you won’t enjoy it. So we created PIY Paint Products so everyone can learn to “Paint it Yourself”. Our products are simple to apply, simple to understand, simple to clean, and affordable.

When looking for products to add to our line we first look for quality. It must always provide the painter with a finished project they love.  This product must work for the first time painter as well as a very experienced talented Furniture Flipper. Second, it must be a product that is simple to use. Easy instructions to follow, yet giving a very professional and beautiful finished project. Third, it must be an affordable product for every budget. And forth, it must be fun. Being a PIY’er is fun. It’s that simple.

Laurie and Cindy were furniture flippers, and they understand the struggles and challenges of painting for profit. They also understand the challenges of home based businesses and small businesses. For that reason they are always happy to welcome home based and small businesses into the PIY Family of retailers.

We also offer a very profitable INCENTIVE REWARDS PROGRAM.  Ask if your home based/small business qualifies today.
