We recentley repainted my living room, hallway, hall bathroom and a bedroom (including the ceilings). We have used the cheaper paint from Wal-Mart and decided to buy the more expensive brand from Lowes. We decided on the Rolls Royce of paint, Olympic. It costs $110.00+tax for a 5 gallon bucket. Which I think is ridiculously expensive. I liked that the smell was not really strong, but it is paint so it still had a paint smell. It covered well. We were painting white on white so we only had to do one coat. I bought the semi-gloss because I wanted something that wiped off easily. Because I just painted I have not really had to clean anything off the walls yet. I will update if there is a problem with that. Honestly for the price the paint is average. I am sure there is a cheaper brand that works just as good. I do not regret buying this paint, but I probably will not do it again. I say if you have the money to spare you might want to try it out, if not shop around for a cheaper brand.
