I have been painting walls for over 40 years and agree whole heartedly with the points made in this excellent idea book.

Just had my house painted two weeks ago and asked the painter and Sherwin Williams if there was a paint that was a bit washable but with little sheen. I previously had flat paint and had liked the look but wanted to be able to wipe a smudge off. I ended up with promar 200 low sheen and am very happy with the look. I was also pleasantly surprised to learn it is zero VOC.

Hayley, for an untrained eye, any paint might be good enough paint, just as any cut can seem acceptable, however, it can make all the difference in the world if you decide to sell your house and the buyers understand quality paint and what it looks like. The difference between, say, Behr, and BM is similar to laminate countertop versus marble or granite, you may not be able to tell the difference, but a professional definitely will. Besides, why compromise on the one most focal aspect of every room and it's wow factor for $50? I'm sure all the painters and designers on this site would agree.. The difference is staggering.

I have an IKEA farm house sink at our lake house & absolutely love it! It's huge, drains fine, and doesn't stain.
