While I detest the before and after of painting, Sherwin-Williams Emerald paint made the actual painting part fun. The paint went on quickly and smoothly. And it’s much better quality than the paint that was on my walls before, which was chalky and cracked. I can already tell it’s going to be more durable and washable. I love touching it, and I don’t have to worry about fingerprints.
I painted the other wall of my living room a cream color that I custom mixed to match the existing paint. The closest Sherwin-Williams approximation is Steamed Milk (SW 7554). I’m ecstatic to finally be rid of those mismatched teal walls!
I didn’t have my brother’s help this time, so I took his advice and used the painting tools he recommends. Good call, bro. I also got lots of patient assistance choosing colors and finishes from the fabulous Shane at Sherwin-Williams. If you happen to visit the Millbrae, Calif. store, tell Shane that Monica sent you.
I’ll show you the rest of my living room when I’m finished with it. Lots more work to do there. But first I have four more rooms to paint. Ugh.
