Get the tin out and paint the world a book by Danny Lucas

Rich with stories about ground-breaking projects, technological developments and seemingly insurmountable challenges, Get the Tin Out and Paint the World unveils a series of lessons, which Danny hopes will inspire future generations to grasp opportunities and transform their own prospects. Get the tin out and paint the world is a dynamic illustration of what anyone can achieve if they set their mind to it. It is an inspirational guide stuffed full with powerful stories which will undoubtedly serve as a vital roadmap for entrepreneurial success. 

After leaving school at 15 with zero prospects, Danny Lucas succeeded in turning a family decorating business into a cutting-edge, fit-out & finishing specialist with a turnover in excess of £30 million a year. The company that bears his name has worked on prestigious contracts from The Shard, to MI5’s iconic Millbank HQ, to Heathrow’s Terminal Five and Bloomberg's new European HQ and has even won a coveted partnership with the iconic McLaren Technology Centre. Today, Lucas is widely respected as one of the best and most innovative organisations in its field. In Get the Tin Out and Paint the World, Danny gives a frank, no-holds-barred account of how he turned his life around from being a teenage tearaway, to a successful businessman running a multi-million pound firm. In characteristically straight-talking fashion, he lays out his tried and tested recipe for success: having a bountiful supply of great ideas and then pulling out the stops to make them happen. It is, he says, easy to think the big thoughts, but unless you make them a reality, they are only ever going to be big thoughts.

  • "ProFinish was very good for cutting in and no brush marks left, also very good paint holding ie lots of paint pick up, leading to less dips in the paint kettle this was using Dulux White Emuslsion. No bristle loss, very good paint pick up and excellent finish achieved with Dulux Trade water based Quick Dry Gloss. The brush was easy to clean out with no shape loss"

  • "Love this rucksack. Its comfortable to wear. I don’t like lugging around heavy toolboxes but if im carrying out a smaller project I can keep my essentials and my ipad in there for my quotes and scheduling"

  • "I bought this on a whim to see if it actually worked, half expecting in not to but actually it works a treat. I had a contract at a local school to repaint their railings over a weekend and training day so thought I would use the mitt. It was great, does exactly what it says it will. Reduces time and leaves a great finish. I thought I was going to have to double up on the coats but didn’t need to, the pile is sufficient to lay off the right amount of paint. I’ll definitely be buying more"

  • "I have to train my men to be painters but first how to be men, responsible, self motivated, fathers, husbands, leader type men. I was looking for a product to help my men and Lucas ProTools popped up in my search. I believe I am buying a key to my future . A symbol of what I am about to build. My leader my inspiration to succeed is passing down the company to myself and our trusted office manager and I wanted your company to know that I will use your product every time I am teaching a new craftsman to do our trade and that I hope your company can keep making a product that can instill pride in the trade."
