I painted our bedroom a green color when we first bought our place. Every wall in our house was white and it was nice to have some color. The shade of green between the bed and the frames is what I love about this color, but the shady area above the frames just looks blah!
So, a few weeks ago I had a chance to try out Benjamin Moore Aura paint from BzzAgent. What better motivation to paint a room than a free can, right? Tim and I decided on a nice grey called Storm and I picked up a gallon at Ace Hardware. I was a little shocked at the $54 gallon price, but the salesmen told me it was the best paint around. I started painting once I got home and was really happy with the color! It’s funny that the color is called Storm, I think it is calming. In the darker areas of the room it is blue/grey. It’s a really nice change! I may have even painted our powder room with the left over paint. 🙂
Prepping, moving furniture, painting, and a couple breaks took about six hours to complete the room by myself. It dries quickly, the fumes don’t linger too long, and covered the walls with one coat. The paint really is fantastic, but unless I can get it for a great price, I won’t be spending so much on one gallon next time I paint.
