Works for Me Wednesday

Today, Im participating in my first-ever WFMW! And wouldn't ya know it's the backwards edition?

So my question to you is this:

What brand of paint is your favorite? I painted my first room a few months ago and apparently bought a really bad paint. It has taken four coats so far and it still needs another! I gave up though and just left it as is. So now that I'm about to start painting the bedrooms, I need some help.

If money wasn't an issue, what brand would be your definite choice? And also, when money IS an issue, what brand(s) do you find still work great?


  1. Though I never thought I'd spend that much for paint, I have to admit that Sherwin Williams is our paint of choice. We were glued to the brand when we painted our study dark chocolate brown last winter -- covering up a light beige -- only ONE coat needed with a few small brush touch-ups! Amazing.
    Good luck!

  2. My stepdad who painted EVERYTHING for everyone always swore by Sears brand. When it was on sale he would buy gallons and gallons then go back and have it tinted as needed. We use Lowe's brand. Yes SW and Benjamin Moore would be wonderful, but also not too affordable for how much we usually need. If you're painting a dark color remember to have the primer tinted. . .that helps A LOT.

  3. Found you through WFMW. We always use Behr. And paint is always on sale during patriotic holidays (memorial day, 4th of july, labor day) We bought several gallons of paint for $10 a gallon when it was on sale and had it tinted when we knew what color we wanted. And that tinting the primer wish we'd known it when we first started painting our bathroom orange. I went back to the store to buy a 2nd gallon for the 3rd coat and the employee told me that.
