Simply marvelous!

Well, here it is....the original cherry red we first put on when we ripped off all that wallpaper off unsealed drywall...that was just horrid! DH wanted something vibrant and energetic that would put people at ease and in a fun mood.

Well, we live in Edmonton country and for those who don't know...there is a huge rivalry between Edmonton & Calgary. We have lived by both cities...but our kids gave DH such a hard time about sporting the Calgary colours, I don't think it was a hard choice to go non red!

The blue in the middle of the photo is 1 coat of tinted primer directly over the red. I was impressed with the coverage...no purple here! The second blue is one coat of topcoat...and I must say I'm again impressed with the coverage, considering we went with the WM house brand because they didn't have any deep base in our preferred brand. Good for them to have such a good product that saved us money!

Looks wonderful and I agree, sometines the house brand does as good or better than the expensive name brand. What a wonderful surprise for your DH. I would love to give my livingroom a new fresh coat but I think I will have to plan a whole weekend and ship the kids off in order to get it done, too much planning at the moment, my brain can't handle it :-)
