I am a huge believer in the transformation that simple paint can bring to a project. Whether it’s painting an entire room, using acrylic paints on a project or the light touch of a watercolor painting – paint is maybe my number one favorite medium to use!

What are the best Acrylic Paints to use?
I love acrylic paint the best. Not only is it readily available at most craft stores, you can also buy it very easily online. I love the huge color variations available with acrylic paints, too.
I use most of the big brands of acrylic paints on a daily basis, however there are a few that I really enjoy. All of Martha Stewart’s Acrylics paints are wonderful. They have a nice thickness to them and a great coverage.
I also like Target’s Hand Made Modern paint selection, but I must say I like their packaging the best. Very minimal labels, so most of the container is clear plastic and you can really see the paint colors easily. I’m also a fan of Deco Art and Apple Barrel paints.
I have even done quite a few marbling projects using Acrylic Paint.
What are the best Interior Paints to use?
Many years ago, my husband read in Consumer Reports that Home Depot’s Behr Premium Plus paint was the best interior paint and from that day onward – that is the interior paint we use in our home.
I often prefer the look of the Matte finish and in some rooms that will work. However, in our higher trafficked rooms, I will use an eggshell… just a little bit more of a sheen and easier to cleanup (from kids and bathroom or kitchen spills).
What are the best Watercolor Paints to use?
I have been a long fan of Prang Oval 16 Watercolor palette. I have used Prang watercolors since college. I recently have also tried Artist’s Loft 36 pan set and really loved how many color options were included.
