Updated Mudroom & Dutch Boy Refresh® Paint Review



I gave the mudroom a fresh new look with some paint ( thanks to Dutch Boy  and there Refresh® Paint) and a few changes. I still plan to do more redecorating and changes but that might take longer so I'm going to share the freshly painted walls now. 

 and yes I blurred my window, its not a pretty view to the garage.

Here it is now.

Technically I do need to finish the area by the pantry and fix the spot by the door.



I love the color, its Stonewall Jackson and Dutch Boy was so kind to send me two gallons of there Refresh® Paint.
I went for a satin for durability but its more like a eggshell sheen.

Here is the before



I decided to go for a dark shade instead of keeping it light, it feels warm and more inviting.
 This is the room that the computer is in so I want to enjoy it more...this is the 3rd most room that I'm in during the day.
 I know my bulletin board is cluttered but that's just how it always is.

Tomorrow I'm going to share the details about the room, I dont want this post to be to long so I'm breaking it up. 

Now on to the paint

Dutch Boy sent me a fan-deck with a while ago but that's another story so it was easy to pick a color..... well..I did some research first and then went with Stonewall Jackson F15-3.


First I love the easy twist cap, you just need to make sure its not full of paint or it will dry and be hard to open and close it. I love that its zero vac Greenguard® Indoor Air Quality Certified but some colors may not be after tinting with conventional colorants. , its better for the environment and your house. It barely had a smell to it although regular paint smell never seems to bother me.  It has exceptional hide and durability....I didn't use primer on my walls.  

As for the odor part I haven't smelled any stinky shoes lately. 

The spout is my second favorite part about this paint. It really helps to not make a mess. 

Even pouring into small cups.

dont drink that cup. 



I noticed that the paint dried very fast, which is good but can be bad. Sometimes I take my time painting and never painted with anything that did dry that fast. But it was good for painting the walls because I was able to re-coat faster. The paint drys smooth with little brush marks and it coated well with a roller.

I only needed two coats for this room, I haven't finished the first gallon yet. I do still need to paint a few areas and would like to get some trim in this room. But for now I'm satisfied with the paint color and Dutch Boy.

I definitely recommend using Dutch Boys Refresh® Paint.
Its also very affordable for a zero voc paint. 



Don't forget tomorrow I'm going to share more details of the mudroom and what I want to change.
