We have looked at quite a bit, took samples of what we liked and lived with the samples stuck on the wall for 2 weeks, like some sort of odd patchwork wall! I did an instagram poll to see what your favourites are, Mr TYH did the same but with his Snapchat friends and we decided on…
I hate picking paint, there is too much choice and I am so indecisive. But I came away with a range rather than not picking up enough! The samples are all currently stuck up in a line on the wall too. We are going for grey (obvs, is it not the interior cliché of the year?!) but we want a light but warm grey, if there is such a thing. I think we have found one from the B&Q Valspar range, bring on the tester pots!
But we actually went with Dulux – Polished Pebble! https://www.diy.com/departments/dulux-polished-pebble-matt-emulsion-paint-2-5l/234425_BQ.prd And no B&Q are not sponsoring this post, but if they fancy it…I have many more rooms to do?
So how about some progress pics?
To prepare for painting we filled any holes or cracks with filler and sanded it back so the walls were smooth. The reason we chose matte paint is because it hides a lot of blemishes too!
