    Your brand of paint is the best I've tried. Painted my dining room with it several years ago and still looking good. Good paint is worth every penny you pay for it and won't need repainting until time to change color.

    I love to paint!! I love what a fresh color can do for a room. I like to paint alone, listening to music or an audiobook. Mindless and instant results!

    I love to paint!!! I use Sherwin- williams - what a huge difference good paint and paint brushes make. I use to use bargin paints at Lowes or home depot...no more...you can still get Sherwin williams paint cheaper just ask for their oops paint. I get lucky and pay a lot less. But I would pay more if they do not have the color I want. Oh...and I paint everything...all the time...I love how different a room looks!

    I hate to paint too. I'll try that brand the next time I get up the nerve to paint.

    I can't climb ladders anymore or get down easily but I like painting and LOVE hanging wallpaper. My aunts taught me to hand wall paper when I was about 13---back when my job was wielding that 20lb paste brush---to get to lay down that brush and actually put a piece of paper on the wall was heaven. Okay, it didn't actually wiegh 20lbs but after an hour or so it felt like it.

    I LOVE to paint! I like the feeling of looking at something I did and seeing the transformation - in a really short period of time. And it so changes the atmosphere in a room.

    Funny this topic should come up...guess what's next on my agenda? Painting my bathroom! Just deciding on colors now :) It really needs freshing up.

    I love to paint. And I need to redo my den for the longarm biz to make it brighter. It currently had a yellow base color with a tan/brown t-shirt 'texturizing' technique on it. I really hate to cover that up, 'but ya do what ya have to do'.

After tolerating 15 years of the same boring bedroom, I decided enough was enough! Time to make a change. My DBIL suggested a line of paint and since he is a master at painting, I decided to try his brand. Rather than name the brand, I'll give you a hint. It's the name of an animal and there are polar, panda, grizzly, and teddy ones. If you don't know by now, then you don't know your 'bears'. Well, if this isn't the best paint in the world! And, like I said, I hate painting. This paint went on like butter, I tell ya'. Smooth, good coverage, great colour (Warm Earth). This has been so great, I just had to tell you all that I am converted!Good-bye drab, hello 'Bear'.
    Amen to disliking painting. I will have to try and find your "bear" as I have a project in the works and was dreading the painting part.
