While I thought I knew what I wanted, in entering the paint section at Home Depot, I realized I couldn't have been more wrong. I was overwhelmed with a huge selection of brands and an even larger selection of colors. The options were endless. I found what I wanted and ended up with a brand I will never stray from. Behr, the "#1 Paint and Primer all in one." How convenient!
I purchased 1 gallon gray, 1 gallon Plum Shadow, 1 pint white, 2 plastic covers, tape for the edges and an entire paint kit (Including: Paint pan, Two rollers, a corner edger and paint brush) all for around $86.00. While it seems like and quite an investment for just paint. It is well worth it. My room started out as a plain pale yellow.
I wasn't going to let my inexperience intimidate me. With the help of my boyfriend, I took my room on. I painted the back wall and ceiling purple, the other three walls gray and the borders/door white. In ONE day I totally revamped my room, it is now a peaceful plum palace.
I couldn't be more pleased, I didn't realize how uneasy my room was until I felt the contentment of my "new" room. One word comes to mind SATISFACTION. Be empowered by paint, I dare you.
Suggestion: I thought I was getting a steal when I used masking tape for the edges of my room because it was a little cheaper, wrong. The paint bled through a little (hardly), but if you are a perfectionist, I insist you go with the blue painter's tape.
