First, thanks so much for all of your kind comments yesterday.
I’ve mentioned before that I used Behr’s new Paint plus Primer in my master bedroom, and I’ve had many of you ask how I liked it. For those of you who aren’t familiar with this paint, it’s a new line from Behr (available at Home Depot) that is supposed to be the equivalent of paint and primer in one (thus the name) allowing for better coverage and fewer coats.
It’s around $30 a gallon, as compared with $23 (?) for the regular Behr paints. The Paint Plus Primer line has it’s own amazing color options (much better colors than the regular Behr line - in my opinion), but as an FYI, the colors can only be mixed by Home Depot in the Paint Plus Primer.
So here’s my take. I liked it. I was able to paint my master bedroom in one coat. I liked the color (Silver Tinsel) and I liked the finish (I used eggshell).
Here’s the thing though, unless I’m painting over a really dark color I’m usually able to paint a room with one coat using the regular Behr paint. So that’s why it’s a tentative endorsement. I liked the paint, it’s great, there are tons of gorgeous colors to choose from, I would use it again…but I like the regular Behr paint too.
Have I totally confused you? :-)
Have a great weekend!
