True Value Paint

We went with a color called November Rain on the walls in the dining room. We used it in one of our previous homes, and thought it would be a nice, fresh choice for the dining room here at TLC, too. It’s a pale green/gray, and it’s really neat because depending upon what time of day it is, and what the sun is doing, sometimes it looks more green…

…and sometimes it looks more gray…

…and sometimes it looks green/gray!

It’s a Benjamin Moore color, but we had ours mixed at True Value. We’ve been really happy with their EasyCare paint.

According to the folks at TV, it’s “formulated to the most rigid of VOC regulations and exceeds the strictest industry standards, so you not only get a truly green product, you also get a long-lasting, durable finish backed by a lifetime warranty“. Sweet!

We got our wall color in a satin finish and we’re going to paint the kitchen with some more of it next week!

We painted our ceiling a color called Moonlight White (also a Benjamin Moore color) and plan to paint the wonder wall with that same color when we’re finished caulking it all out. (Tthe wonder wall is currently painted a Sherwin Williams color called Alabaster, which is slightly warmer than Moonlight White.)

But right now, we’re just concentrating on cleaning up the dust-lake in our kitchen.

Tile removal is a messy job, y’all.

    my son painted one of my living room walls with a paint by Miller Paint called Glass. i say it’s green he says it’s blue – and during the day it does change colors – sometimes it’s more fun to watch the wall change colors than it is to watch tv! thank you so much for sharing your house changes. it’s great fun.

    Be very careful taking a color from one manufacturer and having it mixed at another store. The base mix is not the same, so the color will definitely not be the same. It might be close, but not exact. Good Husband (who is a contractor) taught me that.

      Hey Victoria! Yeah, we learned that lesson the hard way a while back with a color we used to have on the ceiling in the dining room! :-O It was ok in this situation though, because we were starting from scratch with this color. :-)
