I received a message the other day requesting my room colors and where I got my paint. And I realized that I don't know if I ever came out and told everyone what colors I went with. Sorry about that.
Our living room ceilings were just painted using a generic flat white ceiling paint that we picked up at Sherwin Williams. It was actually two different colors that we just mixed together. It was so much brighter in the room as soon as we did this.
All of our paint is the Cashmere paint from Sherwin Williams. It was so nice to use and went up really well. The odor was pretty low; we didn't even notice it when I did the living room. It took us two coats of paint, but I always suggest at least two coats of paint. That way you're coverage will be as even as possible. Also I don't trust those one coat paints. They don't really work in my eyes.
The red was the Durability paint from Sherwin Williams. We haven't put the red up yet, but I'll do an update on that and how easy or hard it was to do the red. I'm hoping with the primer and quality of paint, we'll be able to accomplish the look we're going for in two-three coats.
We got all of our wall paint from Sherwin Williams. We are really happy with the paint from there and if you hit up on of their sales, you can get a pretty good deal on the paint. I also feel that if you have questions, a real paint store is the best to go too. The big box stores are better on price, but I just don't feel like they know as much as the paint stores. But the decision is up to you where you get your paint. There are a lot of good brands out there.
