My paint experiment

When the 3 final paint choices for the man cave each happened to be made by someone different – I decided to make things interesting.

This is what I saw after one coat:

While I've heard some negative reviews on Martha Stewart paint – I was shocked by the lack of coverage. It took me 3 coats to even get my sample on the wall somewhat presentable.

As for the Behr and Glidden, while Glidden covered a bit better – I think it's a personal preference. I know some people swear by Behr, but I'll always swear by Glidden. And I'm thrilled this little experiment proved Glidden's awesome.

This experiment was done out of boredom and not because I'm being paid by Glidden (even though that'd be super cool).


  1. This reinforces our refusal to buy Martha Stewart, sweet. :)

  2. I am a Behr girl! is that Grape Leaves by any chance? ;)

    love the color regardless of the brand - can't wait to see how it looks!

  3. I'm a Glidden or Valspar (from Lowes) girl myself, but I have to admit I am glad you did the little test. Now I know to not even bother with the Martha Stewart paint. Thanks!
