because I’ve got nothing else today.
BC’s in Cincinnati and we’re in survival mode.
Incident one was Krylon brand paint from Walmart. (I know! I know! I go there like twice a year whether I need to or not! And every single time I leave cursing!)
Incident two was Rustoleum brand paint from a home improvement store.
I decided to tackle the filing cabinet last night after the kids were in bed. I (stupidly) bought Krylon. Again. From the Walmart. BC needed deodorant and I only had time to make one stop. They have more color options than the home improvement store, too. And I wanted Apple Green. They didn’t have it (ha!), so I bought orange. I’m impatient. I used an entire can and you could not even tell that I’d painted anything!
This morning I went to the big orange home improvement store and picked up some Rustoleum. In Apple Green. Worked like a dream.
So, is it Krylon that’s crap? Is it buying paint from Walmart that’s crap? A little of both?
What’s your experience?
And because Alissa asked nicely…
I’ve added a picture. I still need to sand a few spots and do a final coat.
