Insider tip. Don't worry, it's legal. Some of you may have already figured this out. Paint prices are on the rise, yet again. As the price of oil continues to go up so will things like paint. The better quality paints, those containing higher levels of latex will show more dramatic price increases. In the long run though, they're still worth it.
Basement painting...finally getting finished! The color is called Roxbury Carmel.
Even with my trade discount, I got quite a surprise when I popped into my local Benjamin Moore dealer. When I buy BM, I always buy the Aura. And, this trip was expensive. We had re-painted half of the basement....well over a year ago! Ah, yes the cost of waiting.
I was told by the manager they are expecting another price increase soon. I'm guessing just in time for spring. Got a big paint project? For many of you it's a 3 day weekend coming up....time to get rolling!
