Not resolved

I'd heard Sherwin Williams paint was excellent, so I bought some. One gallon should cover about 369 sq ft, according to the internet.

I had about 235 sq ft. The gallon kind of covered that, but there wasn't a drop left to go over uneven parts. So, obviously, I was disappointed in the coverage. It was also very unforgiving.

Every tiny line - from brush to roller - showed, so much "patching" was necessary. This has not happened to me with Behr paints. I needed just a little more paint for the patching, so I went back and the salesman told me he couldn't sell me less than a gallon - no matter my need. So, for the sake of an exact match, I wasted a lot of money on the gallon.

For my second room (different color), I went to Home Depot, which can match pretty much any color. I have found Behr to get better coverage and be more "forgiving". Also, if I only need a quart, I'm sure Home Depot will mix me a quart!

I'll take them for customer service. Very nice salesmen at Sherwin-Williams - no complaints - just was disappointed with the paint and their gallon-only policy - wasteful for me and for the environment.

Well good for you. Now put your orange apron back on, get off the internet, and get back to work! There's people waiting at the paint counter!
