Mike's parents sent us THIS article from consumer reports about what paint is best for different applications. It looks like Valspar beat out Benjamin Moore this year as far as coverage goes in the matte category, but a new brand called Clark & Kensington won the satin and eggshell category. That is just fine with me, given the savings potential. Now lets just hope they can color match all of our selections!
The article also talks about best painters tapes as well which is an ongoing debate in our household!
