"I'll admit I was a little taken aback by the price of this paint. I'd been looking for the perfect color for our foyer, stairs, living room and dining room for months. I'd exhausted all the choices at Lowe's and Home Depot, and couldn't find a color I liked. I went to Sherwin Williams and almost immediately "THE" color jumped out at me. I bought a sample first, and still loved it so I went back and bought several gallons in eggshell finish.
The second I started painting I realized that sometimes you really do get what you pay for. This paint goes on silky smooth, only needs one coat, and it spreads out just enough to hide roller and brush marks. We were painting over dark paint used by a previous owner, so I had to prime the walls first, but I think it would have covered any lighter color without priming.
I had to paint in stages because I didn't have a large block of time to do a whole room at once. I made sure the paint I'd already applied had really dried, and then painted next to it, overlapping a little bit. I'm happy to say that I couldn't tell where the overlap was. I also didn't notice much of an odor from the paint, which is nice.
I've painted four rooms now, and love the color and quality of this paint! We have four kids, so within days I found grubby fingerprints on the newly painted walls of the stairs. They washed right off, and didn't leave the tell-tale shiny spot that some other paints leave.
I'm sold on Sherwin Williams' SuperPaint and from now on that's all I'll buy. It's so worth the extra cost to have quality paint that lasts for years."
