Hi we are remodeling an old farmhouse. We have put up brand new drywall and I like the satin finish on paints, I would like a good quality paint and a brand that offers deep,rich colors, What do you recommend??
Thanks

How you prep these walls will make a big difference in how they will look when finished. You will need to prime them with USG First Coat as this product evens the texture of the face of the drywall and the tape joints. After you have primed the walls you will need to sand the entire wall to remove any fuzzed up paper (the sander screws onto the end of your extension pole)and then remove this sanding dust before you apply the finish paint.
You should buy the best paint that the company makes as this will be the best value for you money. I prefer Duron as that is what I am familiar with but just be sure to go to a paint store and not one of the home centers.
Happy painting.

We usually use satin for trim moldings and doors but for drywall it is a little bit of a high sheen and will highlight any flaws in the drywall work.

Both Benjamin-Moore and Sherwin-Williams make great paints
