SW bathroom paint


Went to S.W. for bathroom paint for walls. They have a sale going on and were too busy so I left and will go back another time.

In case someone new waits on me, I want to be sure I get the right paint.

Does anyone know the name of the moisture barrier paint at S.W.

thank you.

if this only comes in gallons I'm not sure what to do. I want 2 colors for the small bath. Each wall is only about 80 sf, so that will be a lot of wasted paint, unless I try to use it in the garage later on.

Once a can is open what's the life span of paint? I have too much to do to even think about starting on the garage now.

Buy the gallons. Quarts are almost the same price. Seal it up, store it in a cool, dry place and it will be fine.

Lousy, Startingover, we haven't been out of the 20's all week. Big storm a brewing in the middle of the country and may give us 3-6 inches of snow on Tuesday of next week. I'm sure you're really freezing down there in sunny Florida!

Phil should be deep fried. I am in Ohio also (Northern), and I am sick of the snow. Spring will arrive....someday (hopefully).

If you're okay with a satin finish, you're good to go with any satin wall finish, doesn't have to be a bath paint.

I'm sure I want a bathroom moisture resistant paint, so if SW doesn't have this as another poster said, what's the next choice in a bathroom paint?

Maybe they can order it for me. Keeping my fingers crossed and going there this afternoon.

chrisn, and you don't have sinkholes in CA either.

JS was right.Any paint with a sheen would be fine but if you want a bath paint specifically and can't find it at SW.....BM has this.IDK why the SW stores don't carry the bath paint there.

The only read difference between a satin bath paint and a standard wall satin is the addition of mildewcides, to my knowledge anyway. You can add your own mildewcide to the paint and, voila, bath paint. It's the satin characteristic that prevents steam penetration.

Yep. Sure enough when I went to SW today the guy that I think knows the least, was the only one there. He said SW no longer makes a "Bathroom Paint".

I asked what SW sells for bathrooms and he said "any". Then my daughter asked and he said "Duration".

So.........what do I do now?
