Okay, after living in our new spacious China White main room, the time had come to start injecting the color. After not much thought we settled on trying Marston's paint in Dijon after trying it out on some furniture....
Marston is a really good find for paint. The colors are made with 12 pigments and are noticeably richer and more interesting under the light. They are also non toxic and easy to work with. We painted this backsplash before cooking dinner and there was nearly no odor. Drying took place in about 15-20 minutes.
Marston paint is expensive, BUT because the paint is so rich and well made we have been getting away with $5 test pots for use all over our house. It goes on thick and you get much better coverage. For decorative painting and small projects we think it's a great resource.
Now, it's only a matter of time before we work on injecting color somewhere else!
