THIS GIVEAWAY IS OVER
Last week I showed you what I did outside of my house to get it ready to sell. This past weekend, I did a little updating to the inside, to the master bath.
I liked how my bath looked and functioned but neutralizing the decor and removing the occupant’s taste and personality is an important staging trick when selling your house. This helps buyers who tour the home more easily envision their furnishings and lifestyle in the home, making them want to move right in. :-)
To make this happen…paint is the tool of choice. Paint is truly AMAZING! You know how much I use it to transform rooms and furniture to add my personal style to my house. Paint is also amazing on the flip side of the coin, when you want to de-personalize!
Home Painting Tip:
I found a paint that does the job extremely well and the best part is it only costs $20 a gallon!
The master bath had grasscloth wallpaper that needed to come down. When I started to remove it, I got a little surprise…I totally forgot that many years ago I had painted an accent wall in the room, blue.
Whoa!.. surprise…surprise. Since I was going with an off-white color to neutralize, I knew I had my work cut out for me and guessed it was going to take at least 3 coats of paint to cover it.
Well I was pleasantly surprised to find that the $20 gallon of paint covered the blue…
…with only two coats. A win in my book with less work for me.
So what is this $20 a gallon budget-friendly paint that goes on smooth and dries to a lustrous finish?
The paint is from Glidden called High Endurance. It is sold at Walmart. I had it mixed up in the color Crisp Linen in a satin finish to neutralize the bath, but you can get it mixed up a wide variety of colors. It is a soft white that makes pure white trim, pop!
I cannot tell you how happy I am with this paint. It was my first time using it and I was a little skeptical of how a $20 gallon of paint would cover and look. It was a win all around!
I will be using it again, but in my new house to add my personality and style to our new home, wherever that may be.
Do you have any painting projects planned for your home? If so, I can help one lucky reader buy some paint and more with one $100 gift card to Walmart.
