I am painting my porch this weekend. My dad told me that Behr paint is the best. I don't usually go to Home Depot, and I wouldn't normally buy a more expensive brand of paint. (My thinking would be paint is paint). I'm glad I listened to my dad!

I got two colors. One is Swan Wing (W-F-400). It's a bright but creamy white color. It's very pretty, reminds me of cake icing. The other color is Forest Ridge (420F-7) which is a rich, dark forest green. They are absolutely enchanting together!

We did all the scraping and peeling and finally it was time to apply the paint. This paint was terrific. We mostly painting over a blue grey color (depending on how far down the scraping went) and this white totally covered it in one coat. I couldn't believe it! We are going to go ahead and do another coat just so it's brighter and cleaner, but we wouldn't have to. I was totally amazed. I thought for sure it was going to take three.

This is some very good paint. I'l have to get back to you on durability, but I am pleased so far.
