Pepto Pink, Black Polka dots, updated!

Back in July of last year I did a post titled "Paint it pepto pink with black polka dots"

My basic point of that post was that it's your home, paint it however you want.  That is just one of the benefits of home ownership.

Well just as easy as it is to paint pink and black polka dots .... It can become a very nice "Sea Foam green.

Behr paints, the brand they sell at Home Depot, makes a paint/primer combo.  Instead 1 coat of primer then 2 coats of paint we just needed 2 coats of paint.  It saved a bunch of time and money.  And just like that we have a completely different room!

That's so great to know!    I never buy the paint at Home Depot, but I'll start now...

Hi Bob, my daughter would have loved the pink room w/black polka dots!    Susan

Dagny,  The paint was great.  It worked really well.  A little more expensive than regular wall paint but cheaper than buying the primer + plus it saved 1 coat!


Susan, Paint is cheap.  Go for it!  We have another room that is a similar pink with an entire wall that is black chalkboard paint.

And I was just thinking about going the pepto route myself...

What's up with all the painting, Bob?
