The previous color was Behr 'Simple Silhouette' and it was too shiny (I had used eggshell) and a little purpley. The new color (Behr Pier in flat) is more of a true gray and a bit lighter. We both love it.
The flat sheen is so much nicer.
It took forever, thank goodness I had my man to help me!
I thought it would be fun to do a citron yellow in the closet to complement the fabrics we will be using in here....but we both said something along the lines of 'oh shit!' when we put it on the wall. I had to trust my vision...
It is a Pittsburgh Paints color (Golden Yarrow), and I stupidly got the PP paint at Menards instead of color-matching it at Home Depot. This paint is TERRIBLE. It is 'Ultra' Bad.
I scoff at the 'One Coat Coverage' claim! We've applied 3 coats and it is uneven and horrible looking up close. I intend to take it back to Menards and tell them I want a refund, in the meantime I got the color matched into Behr Flat Enamel, which I'm confident will work much better.
We were afraid to ruin the closet system by removing that long divider, so Shaun wedged himself into the closet where my belly wouldn't fit...what a trooper! Too bad he will have to do it again with the new paint.
I still have to paint the dresser and hammer out that closet situation.
This could take awhile.
