my first attempt at wall painting is not going well.


the bottom right corner still looks terrible. I think I pressed too hard. Can I paint over just that part or do I need to repaint the whole wall? The wall was only painted a month ago, but i didn't like the color, and that's why I'm here today.

That depends on what paint you are using
Some flat paints "touch up" nicely
Most eggshell/pearl/satin sheens do not...but some brands/lines are better than others

Yes, I've been told, but after the fact. Since I need to buy more paint, besides Behr, with apparently causes fights here, what would you suggest? I have a Sherman Williams and Benjamin Moore paint shop, both less than 2 miles away. I want whatever goes on the easiest.

Either one has premium lines of paint would be much superior to the Behr or Ralf in ease of application, coverage, and final look

The Ben Moore Regal or Aura lines or the Sherwin Williams Duration Home or Cashmir lines would be excellent choices

As a general rule, you will always find better quality products, tools, and advice from a Paint Store than from a big box or chain dept. store
