Go Deep, Not Cheap
You don't always get what you pay for.
Example: A Toyota is a much higher quality car than a Mercedes. Yeah yeah ... argue all you want about luxury and status ... but truth is, Toyota is better.
(Remarkably, near the bottom you find Volkswagen and Audi. So much for "German Engineering"...)
We recently purchased some what-we-thought-was-good ceiling paint from The Home Depot (pet peeve: it's _The_ Home Depot, not "Home Depot". ARGH!). The kind of ceiling paint that goes on purple and dries white.
Painted the ceiling in our being-remodeled bedroom. The result?
We had to add another coat. This time we went to "Covers The World" Sherman-Williams and paid for good paint. Now?
Lesson learned. Save money when buying bottled water (tip: DON'T!) and spend the savings in good paint. Don't be afraid to go deep into the wallet now and then to get quality.
All The Best,
