    I always do trim first as well then finish off with the roller.

    I tend to do my final trim coat with a brush. No worries about splatter and I like the brushed on look better for trim.

    Thanks. It’s actually supposed to be a really light grey but the lighting makes it look like a bluish shade. You can tell it does not match the color of the countertops LOL. I hope my girlfriend will like this color. We both picked out the color but I did not think and be like this.

    Thanks. Readd to paint more @doobie? No lol. It tokk longer than I thought. I give a big kudos to anyone who sands and paints inside houses for a living. I did all the painting by myself. Is it perfect? No, but it looks better than the other color that was on the walls.

    From your pics it looks good. What don’t you like about it ? Does it need another coat ? or is something you missed in your prep show up ?

    BTDT the only way to see what the color will look like is to actually put it on a wall. The color samples at the store in my opinion are close bu not always right.

    Lighting makes a hung difference in some colors.

    Very true, the lighting in the paint Store, and the light at your house from the natural light coming in the window and the lights make a difference,

    I always use two coats of paint also.
    Regardless if I use primer or not.

    I’ve had it where we had started a paint job and realized we didn’t like the colour and decided to start over with another color. My shop inherited the leftovers for its ceiling. I didn’t mind the color myself, but wifey didn’t like it once it was going on. I didn’t complain as I know from past experience to not just endure a color you don’t like and seeing it for years to come. Been there, done that before.

    All true. Here’s a bit of maybe useless knowledge…. If you trim the white border off of the store chip sample you actually can get a better feel for the color both in store and at home

    Darker colors tend to suck up the light and make the room feel smaller. With a lighter color on the wall you have more light in the room.
