Painting The Flip + Giveaway!

After an exhausting couple of weeks, we are finally seeing the light at the end of the tunnel.  So many weeks have been spent tearing this house apart and putting it back together again.  But what’s really made it feel like we’re progressing, is being able to paint the walls!  That’s when everything seems to come together.

The color scheme we picked for this house is more modern, with gray tones rather than beige.

I picked out HGTV HOME by Sherwin-Williams-Anew Gray paint for the interior.

HGTV HOME by Sherwin-Williams is now at Lowe’s, have you noticed?  I was so stinkin’ excited when I walked in and noticed that!

Ok, so… one of our partners said he wasn’t really sure about Sherwin-Williams paint, he typically uses another brand.  I have always been a huge fan (it’s all I use in my house), and insisted that we go ahead with the HGTV HOME by Sherwin-Williams Showcase brand in a flat finish (from Lowe’s).


I just knew I’d make him a believer!

We trimmed out the room first and thought it was going to be way too dark.

But it must have been the paint up against the stark white ceiling and wall, because when we rolled the entire thing and it was dry, it turned out the perfect shade of gray!

After it was dry, our flip house partner said, “Wow, this is a really nice paint!”  Yeah it is!!!

Make Him A Believer – CHECK!

All ready for flooring now!  How great is this color?!

  5. Rodney Sterling says:

    I would paint the garage since we have painted most of the rooms in our house with Sherwin Williams paint. My wife used to be a designer at Sherwin Williams store in Nederland Texas in the 1970’s. We would call her Shirley Williams. We have used Sherwin Williams paints since
