I have 3 bedrooms, 3 bathrooms and the kitchen island now complete.
Dunn Edwards - Flat: +/- 29.00 per Gal.
2 bedrooms done in a beige over a 1/4 tinted bullseye 123. Very nice paint that was easy for a novice like me to spray on. Covered in a single coat, didn't sag and only a few runs in each bedroom (my fault)...looks great.
Dunn Edwards - Semi Gloss: +/- 37.00 per Gal.
2 bathrooms done a light beige over a 1/2 tinted bullseye 123. Another very nice paint from Dunn. Covered in a single coat, didn't sag and only a couple of runs (my fault)...looks great.
Pratt & Lambert Accolade - Flat: +/- 34.00 per Gal.
1 bedroom done in a coco over very lightly tinted (same tint as above) bullseye 123. This is my favorite paint so far. With only a single run (my fault) this paint went on very smooth, didn't sag, and only needed a single coat. I really thought I would have to go over this with a second since my primer was only ver lightly tinted, but that was not the case.
Pratt & Lambert Accolade - Semi Gloss: +/- 35.00 per Gal.
1 bathroom done in a what I would call a woody beige color (a little darker than most) over the same lightly tinted primer. I had very high hopes after the coco bedroom I had just finished, but ran into some problems, and maybe someone with more experience can give some advice. the bathroom wall areas are very tight and a lot of semi hidden edges, so I figured there would be some runs, but I had a total of about a dozen large runs and on the edge outlining all of the runs was a dark amber colored liquid. Was this the acrylic and the result of poor mixing, or some other oversight on my part? If so I feel much better that it was lack of chekcing and prep on my part, but as of now I can't recommend this paint and will hold off on the other room (as long as I can) until further feed back.
Valspar Signature - High Gloss: +/- 32.00 per Gal.
1 Kitchen Island done in a bright white on a non-tinted bullseye 123. The end result was clean looking, but it took two coats and was "thinner" feeling than either the Dunn or P&L. I did have a few runs, though I didn't think it was all my fault (a contractor I'm sure would have been fine though) and the paint didn't sag. This was a last minute call on a Sunday, if anyone was wondering why the Valspar.
Paint store believes it was a poor mix job and will be checking the machine. We will be repainting the bathroom and painting the formal dining and living rooms this Sat.
