It's So Green It's Money

Please accept my apology for the title.  I couldn't help myself.

I finished up Anneliese's room and I'm in love!  It turned out just as I'd hoped.

First of all I would like to admit I'm cheap.  Yep, bonafide cheapskate.  I have only purchased super cheap paint in the past and thought if you did otherwise you must have money to burn.

I have changed my ways!  The miss tint that I purchased for Anneliese's room was Glidden primer + paint in one.  It retails for $34/gallon at Wal-Mart.  I actually hesitated to pay $15 per gallon for the miss tints (!), but I'm so glad I did!  Not only was it the EXACT color I'd hoped for, it covered the entire room (not a super small room, plus it has really high ceilings) plus the bathroom with just 1 gallon and 1 coat!  No joke!  I was insanely impressed with how easily it covered.  Obviously I would have had to use two gallons of the cheap stuff and a whole lot more time.  I have a new favorite that I will actually shell out the cash for.  I was super impressed.

bye bye baby blue
