Isn't that pretty?
No, it's not my bathroom. It belongs to Sherry and John, from Young House Love. But it's the inspiration for what we're doing in our master bath. In fact, we decided to test out the white they used for the lighter stripes.
Now, you saw me mention a few posts back that I'm in love with Benjamin Moore. Since then I've heard several people extol the virtues of other brands. Hey, I figured, I can keep an open mind. I'll try it.
After two days of painting, we're still not finished. And we've gone through an entire gallon. Let me point out that both our quite large master bedroom and our cavernous living room took less than two gallons of BM paint. I full expected that our small master bath would take maybe half a gallon. But seriously! Already used a gallon and have to go get more. The paint feels very thick and goopy, not smooth at all. Cutting in is difficult and frustrating. And the coverage is uneven, at best.
Hopefully we can finish up with another quart and then the stripes well help cover up the imperfections. No more Valspar paint for me, thanks.
