I finished painting my living room in December. It should have been November but I kept putting off painting the trim. The next room on my list is the guest bedroom. I really like light colours, but may decide to go a little more dramatic. It is a small room, so I need to think of any DIY projects for that room at the same time.
I am the type of person that likes to paint one room at a time. Even if I select the same colour of paint for my entire home, I will still only paint one room at a time. I only want to move furniture one room at a time. I frankly don’t have the patience to do more than one room.
I don’t hire a painter, I instead, rely on my family and friends. I host a painting party and provide food and cocktails. I get quick results. One room gets done quickly and my family and friends don’t mind coming in for a short period of time instead of an entire day or weekend of painting.
My Paint of Choice
I used the Canadian Tire Premier Paint for my living room. I noticed the new brand at the end of 2016. I picked the Premier Active. I was very happy with it, so I will choose this paint again. (Note to self, I must write a blog post about my living room). I do have a ton of CTMyPoints which I can also use to purchase my paint and accessories.

Here is a chart to help you select the right paint for your room. You can select from Premier, Premier Active and Premier Infinity.
The bedroom is currently a creamy white colour so I won’t require great coverage like I did for my living room. I will select Premier regular line. I will double check with the paint representative at Canadian Tire just to make sure.
