Benjamin Moore Aura Paint

I promised one of my loyal readers (I think there are only two) that I would post a photo of what I spent my Sunday doing. I had the opportunity to get a gallon of one of the new Benjamin Moore Aura paints for free. These things are not cheap - around $50 - but it's supposed to have lower VOCs, etc. I wouldn't know because I'm such a hack painter that I needed to have a can of paint thinner nearby. Good thing the weather was gorgeous yesterday, and I could open the windows while painting. I can say that I swear by Benjamin Moore paints; the bulk of my apartment is painted with that brand's paints except for the bathroom area, which was a big mistake. With Benjamin Moore, I can get away with as little as one coat of paint. With the inferior competitor, I needed close to four. So, the new additions are the darker wall in this photo and the little indentation part. The indentation is supposed to be a lighter hue than the main part, but it's really tough to discern. Alas.

  3. Oh, and lest anyone think that I am wasting the remaining can of paint, I plan to paint my kitchen this weekend. :)

  4. Looks great!

    We are nearing the end of a major rejuvenation of a 6,000 square foot home. After finding out more about the new Aura paint, we decided to give it a try. While it is significantly more expensive than say the Regal, or other Benjamin Moore lines, all I can say is WOW! Once you try Aura, it is very hard to go back to older paints! If you've ever tried to paint deep red, you'll know how difficult it is to get full coverage. with Aura paints, it goes on and covers with unbeatable ease.

  5. I just tried the low VOC Benjamin Moore Aura paint. I’ve never had problems with headaches or dizziness smells like paint. I liked the things I tried – which can be transformed into any color palette and its pigments are high.
