Jodi Marks: You know painting is probably the number one do-it-yourself project. Why? Well, first of all you don’t have to have elaborate skills to be a painter. Second of all, you don’t have to have expensive tools to do painting projects. And thirdly, you get instantaneous results, so you can transform the look of any room in no time.
But, you know, sometimes it can be a little time consuming, especially if you have a newly constructed wall; or you’re going from a dark color to a light color, because you’ll need to prime that wall. So, you need to take that extra step. Well, not now! Take a look at this.
Glidden has come out with their DUO paint. And they call this duo because it is more than paint, it’s also a primer as well. So, it’s all mixed in there. Now, what this is going to do is it’s going to give you a nice coverage on your wall. So, that not only will it seal up the wall, but it will also absorb nicely onto the wall. So that you get good coverage, and it’ll last a long time.
Take a look at all of the colors you have to choose from as well. So, your choices are endless. Now, the nice thing is you can use this with the Glidden paint, and you can also use this with the Martha Stewart collection. So, now you have no more excuses to get out those paintbrushes.
