Paint at Walmart?


I know exactly what you mean. But it's all about perception. I certainly am not saying that you won't get the same service from a paint store...but most homeowners won't know that unless they go there.
And since the homeowners are out shopping for light bulbs, garbage bags, garden hoses....etc.....they will do what's the most convenient for them. And when they are doing that kind of shopping they won't wind up in a paint store...no matter how good the service is there. Most shopping experiences are of the "since I am here" variety. Why go to several stores when you can get everything in one place?

Which is exactly why we keep on pounding on the same drum- go to those stores- it is worth your time on many levels.

You may notice some members have firm opinions on some things here, but it's mainly because they are/were pros that did their jobs for many years and we can all benefit from their experience.

The point is the guy is on the site to pick a fight. Want to keep him around do not come after those of us who take him on. When it is time. Attitude and all I can handle if it comes with constructive comments and even opinion I do not like. Hyperbole for its owns sake deserves the reaction it will get.

Wrong! You guys need to REPORT troublemakers, if indeed he is. 190 posts he has and not one report? I find it hard to believe he's a troll or troublemaker, or just wanting to pick a fight, since not one post of his has been reported to us.... (that I can remember anyway) Please report problem members, do not engage them and make it worse. (Because then WE have to come in and edit/clean etc. the thread to keep this the friendly, helpful forum we all enjoy it being.)

Thanks!!!

Some of you guys crack me up, I dont troll nor look to pick fights, I will however argue a point when needed- The first post they guy is asking about walmart paint, so I gave a opinion about home depot paint to use instead. It then turned into how big box stores do not support the community and some other BS. If some of you are really going to think that much into it, you really need to calm down and stick to the threads main topic

Valid point, but its frustrating to see a drive-by post giving bad advice. You want to use Behr and other box store paints? Be my guest. But given their track record, it is irresponsible to recommend them to others.

We all know walmart paint is the lowest of the low, but if that is his price range, the next best thing would be Behr or Valspar paint and just pay a little more. I have used both and Behr was the better between the 2. Yes its not the best but it does go on smooth ( a little thick) and has good coverage. For someone wanting to do one coat, it can be dont for a $25-30 price/gallon. None of that is irresponsible to say. It is first hand experience from a consumer that has used it on sheds, exterior and interior walls of his own house with good results!

Paint at Walmart?


A couple of years ago I was helping a friend with getting her new night club opened up and the painting was on her list of things to do.

She showed up one morning with a bunch of gallons of Wal-Mart paint. BM was literally across the street Wal-Mart was 25mi away, I gave her a little crap then figured she’ll see.

Every wall was a different and fairly loud color. After the first coat the coverage was so bad that it looked like a faux painting job and I could see no way how that even just a second coat would be enough for it to look right.

After a day of disgust on her part and me trying to hold back with the I told you so comments the idea of a faux paint job started to appeal to her and she left it with one coat and called it good.
