How to use it:
A designer's secret for testing paint is to often do a 'roll out.' This can be done at home by applying a Valspar sample to a piece of poster board and watching how the light affects it in different areas of the room and at different times of day.
*Another reason to choose Valspar® branded products in 2011, is that Valspar’s paint donations supports Habitat for Humanity and helps deserving families benefit from the transformative power of color.
