Comments - Week 11 Journal: Painting the Curbly House (Finally!)

bruno on Feb 21, 2014:

Hi Emilia,

We used a satin finish for the walls and a matte finish for the ceilings. The white on the trim is Sherwin-Williams Pure White 7005.

Hi! Thank you for sharing your home.  I really got inspired and I am painting my house Aloof Gray also.  Could you please tell me if you used the matte finish for the aloof gray walls and did you use semi-gloss for the ceilings? What white did you use??

Emma on Oct 22, 2013:

Love the painted trim! Did you just use extra white non-tinted high gloss paint. There are so many shades of white it's hard to know which to choose!

Karen on Sep 11, 2012:

beautiful choices, love the white trim . .  congrats on new baby!

Thanks guys! 

@stacey - I had never used Sherwin-Williams before, so I can't really compare to the SuperPaint, but I was super impressed with the Emerald, and everyone I talked to said it was the best paint they'd ever used.

Just....WOW.  I *love* the white trim with the colors you've chosen.  That bathroom has me so envious.

Stacey on Sep 04, 2012:

Wow, it's looking gorgeous!  The white woodwork looks awesome!

Sherwin-William's old SuperPaint was my very favorite paint to use ever.  It went on so smoothly and had awesome coverage.  Do you have an experience with it, and if so, how does the Emerald compare?  The new SuperPaint isn't as good as the old stuff so I'm in the market for a new paint.
