One of the goals for this year is to finish painting the main floor of the house. We still need to paint the kitchen/breakfast area. Front hall and stairs to the basement. Powder/laundry room and our bedroom.
Before Christmas I painted both the living room and dining room. The living room was hard going with the nearly 12 foot ceilings; although I did not paint the ceilings, just painting the walls that height was enough.
I like to use Beauti-Tone paints, which is carried by Home Hardware. I bought a lot of paint in June of 2015 (see here) basically at half price, so am working my way through those. If I run out of paint it's easy enough for me to pop into the store to get some more. Also they have a programme where when you buy six cans of paint you get one free; you don't have to buy them all at once. So it's well worth doing that. Plus I like the paint, which always helps!
I am choosing the paint for the main floor from the Colour Confidence series, which just happens to be the colours I like. So far I have painted the living room in Oak Tone and the dining room in Feather Stone and the kitchen/breakfast room/front hall in Earthling.
Sorry about the quality of the photo. When you paint what colours tend to be your favourite?
