Can we talk paint? As you know I'm one of the contributors for the Glidden blog, My Colortopia. As a result I've had the opportunity to use a lot of their paint over the years. I've always had really good experiences with it but when I wanted to paint Aggie's big girl room a stark white with a black ceiling, I wasn't sure how well it would cover. And even more importantly I wanted a dead matte finish on the ceiling - something that wouldn't reflect every imperfection that us old homeowners know all too well.
I went with my old standby - Glidden's Duo paint + primer in one. Mostly because I'm lazy and I don't like to prime. Well I bet you can guess by the virtual homage in this post that I absolutely love the colors and the finish. (You can also guess that I'm still not done in here - I'm working on a mural for the left side of the room that I never seem to get around to finishing which is holding up the works.) It covered the medium green that was in this room before (formerly our guest room) beautifully and the black is the exact shade I wanted. So yeah!
The colors I used were Dove White and Deep Onyx, both in the Glidden Duo flat finish.
