Well the color saga is finally over (I hope). After picking our first color, that was supposed to be blue-gray, and turned out purple, and our second color that just didn’t really match our tile, we’ve finally settled on this nice green color. We also switched paints for this color. Typically I’ve just used the Lowes brand called Valspar. Most of the time I’ll just use the regular stuff, but for small applications I generally get the the Valspar Premium, which in semi-gloss runs about 30 bucks a gallon. This time however we got some Benjamin Moore Regal semi-gloss instead. It was quite pricey, at $45 a gallon, however it is noticably better than the Valspar Premium. The Valspar is quite thick which helps it cover well, however it also seems to make it more prone to drips. It seems that while you’re painting it will look fine, but after I’ve finished I’ve gone back and found drips where I had none before. The Benjamin Moore paint covers just as well, but its not nearly as thick, and thus doesn’t seem to have as many drips. I’m not sure its worth the significantly higher cost, but it does seem to be good stuff.
