I know what I would do differently next time.. use some quality paint instead of that cheap stuff!

I'm now repainting a few years later and a theater is a lot of work to repaint! Speakers moved out, surrounds pulled off walls, bass traps moved out, seats to wrap in plastic, carpet to cover with paper, built in acoustic panels covered in paper, tape everywhere!!!!

Learn from me kids, Behr paint or don't paint at all!

I caved!

Can't you just keep the lights off?

Did you really need to quote that entire post in your reply?

You sound like my wife! It's gotta be presentable for that 22 seconds it takes to walk in, sit down, and then turn the lights off! duh!

Funny, my painter who has 40 years in the business, thinks Behr is crap. Forget Homecheapo, go to a real paint store and buy one of Benjamin Moore's top lines such as Aura and see what real paint quality is. Or Sansin, or Para, or Sherwin-Williams. All of these companies have various lines made to fit various price points. Their top lines are good, but unfortunately expensive. The little known Ontario company, Sansin, has been low VOC for over a decade before it was trendy, so their R & D is ahead of the competition. I've been using their exterior stains with much better luck than the other big names.

When it comes down to it, as expensive as good paint is, it is still a small amount when you consider your time to put it on.

Everybody's got their opinions I guess. I can't remember which paint we used the first time that I hated so much, whatever the cheapest home depot sold 10 years ago. We actually painted our master bedroom with Sherwin Willams and I would never buy that stuff again. I remember it being about 50 bucks per gallon and it took 2 coats to put maroon on a white wall! I like Behr, it's a true one coat paint and it's thick enough that it doesn't drip. The Sherwin Williams had to really be watched as it was just a super thin paint

I caved!
