Painted Living Room

Tonight, I ended up painting the living room. Suzanne picked out the paint color today while I was at work and our neighbors picked it up for us (thanks guys).

This time we purchased Sherwin-Williams matte paint. The color was Kilim Beige which Suzanne was worried would be too light. It worked out well and seems like just the right shade for the living room.

As for Sherwin-Williams, they have excellent paint. It is slightly more expensive, but it has the following:

  • matte finish in a washable paint - unlike our old paint which showed all of the marks
  • the paint buckets are well designed - screw on lids with pour spout

I am glad to have that project over with. Here is a picture of the new paint going over the old paint color.
