you know what they say, if it ain’t broke, don’t fix it.
i don’t know why i strayed from benjamin moore paint. convenience? cost? either way, BIG mistake. i purchased lowe’s house brand paint and minwax polyurethane. yeah, after 5, count ’em 5, layers of paint, i was ready to poly. one round of drippy, thin poly and my good-looking white dresser was yellow. i like yellow but not on my WHITE dresser. i wish i would have taken a picture or two but i was just too angry with myself and minwax to think straight.
my only quam with my new high gloss paint is that it’s oil based. not that i hate oil based it’s just a big pain in the rear to clean. i’m pretty sure the paint pan my not be retained after my next coat. but that’s okay, it’s worth it. it’s thicker, stronger, and overall just looks better.
back to benjamin moore i go for high-gloss white paint. yes, BM paint is a lot more expensive ($50 for one gallon of oil based paint vs $50 for 1 gallon generic primer, 1 gallon valspar paint, 1 qt minwax poly) but i’ve put on one coat of old faithful and the difference is amazing. so enough of my commercial and love for benjamin moore, i’ve got one last coat to finish the job. hoping to have this knocked out today and in our room tomorrow! wahoo!
