Give Your Home an Instant Facelift with Mythic Paint—Safe for the Environment, Safe for Pets, and Safe for You.
As someone who is house-proud, I always want to add a personal touch to my apartments. I haven’t been able to paint my walls in the past, but luckily, I have been allowed to with this place. I was recently given the opportunity to test out some paint from Mythic Paint—who have agreed to offer some paint to one lucky winner, too.
Winner will receive a fan deck to choose their own paint colour, and then 2 gallons of their chosen colour—enough to paint 800 square feet! This is a $145 value!
About Mythic Paint, from website:
Mythic® paint is a non-toxic, ultra low odor paint that provides the durability and coverage you expect from a premium paint without the off-gassing VOC’s and cancer-causing toxins that emit years after drying. Stronger, safer, smarter paint®. Now that’s a breath of fresh air.
The number one thing I look at when choosing a paint brand is whether or not it is non-toxic and low-odor. I am chemically sensitive, so worry about off-gassing from paint fumes. Normally, I would need to wait until summer-time, and make sure that all windows and doors were open before attempting to paint (and would still notice the smell days later). With Mythic Paint I didn’t notice any odors when I opened up the cans, nor when I applied the paint to the walls.
Of course, non-toxic, safe paint is great—but how well does it work? I was pleasantly surprised to find that the coverage of this paint was great, and that it applied smoothly and evenly because of the nice consistency. I have tried paints in the past that have been inexpensive for each can, but ended up costing more in the long-run because I needed more coats of it compared to other brands (like Mythic Paint). For instance, the last paint I tried was also non-toxic/Low VOC (not Zero VOC like this paint, though). The paint didn’t have a great consistency and I needed 3 coats—which still left the paint looking uneven on the wall!
You know that section in hardware stores where there are small dividers with little paint chips for different brands of paint? Well, the variety of colours you can choose from with Mythic Paint is insane—I found it really difficult to narrow down. I finally chose a colour that I thought would work well for this city—nothing too dark or on the blue side (since the light is really blue/grey). This colour is called Karina, and it is a nice shade of light green:
