I am helping a friend choose paint colors today for her house, so I have paint on my mind. I have posted painting tips before but I was watching this episode of Color Splash recently and picked up another great tip. When painting with light gray, always go with a matte finish or it could come off as a metallic silver. Now I always recommend flat paint anyway because it makes your room feel larger, but I had never thought of how a shiny finish could make a light color look metallic. Later in the episode there are more tips on how to apply paint. I was not really a fan of the design in this episode, but it was still full of helpful tips.
