Paint is expensive! Well I think it is but maybe that's because I get through gallons of the stuff - with three kids and two dogs in the house my walls take a fair bit of abuse, and even with washable paint a new coat on the walls at least once a year is the only way to really keep things looking fresh and nice.
Hurrah then for B&Q who currently have some fabulous paint bargains that I'm definitely going to be taking advantage of.
All 5 litre tins of Crown standard colour emulsion are half price at £13.98; you can pick up 10 litres of Crown white matt emulsion for £10 - that's £1 a litre and an absolute gift if you like white walls like I do (yes, I know...kids, dogs, white walls = bad idea).
You can check stock levels and reserve for in-store collection which is great and could save you a wasted journey - nothing worse than preparing to do battle with the DIY shops only to discover they haven't got what you want.
The only thing I can't help you with is how to convince your little ones that letting them lose with a tin of emulsion and a paint brush, or roller, ISN'T the best idea - unless you are one of those fearless DIY parents...which I'm not!
