Paint… Yes, I’m getting myself a ‘refresher course’ on paints. It’s been almost six years since I obsessed and played around with paint color samples. That was during the major renovation of our place before we moved in. I’m anticipating that sooner than later, I will be in the same boat. Thus, as early as now, I’m getting myself ready way ahead of the game.
I don’t know if you’re aware that a self-priming paint from Benjamin Moore (Aura) is now available. What’s good about it is the fact that you no longer need to prime those walls if you intend to paint over a dark colored wall with a lighter hue. You not only save time, you also save money. That is assuming that you hire a painter to do the job. The paint is more expensive than a regular paint but the extra cost will offset the labor cost.
