Hi,
quick question, I'm moving in a new appartment...yeah I know I haven't been here more than a month, and I'm already moving.
Either way, I get to redo the paint and the furniture in there. I was wondering where I could go to get paint for cheap. I'm looking for wall paint and acrylics for the furniture.

Thanks.

Have you found any cheap paint yet?  Let us know if you find out where. 

The cheapest way I found to buy paint was in the really big buckets, but that's not really a good tip because it was still expensive.  Luckily you shouldn't have to do it very often (unless you keep moving that is!).

I have not found anything cheap yet but I am going to try to see if anyone on Freecycle has something.

hello! so you're back to Paris? and you're sure you're not missing Hawai?? Smiley
for the paint, are stores like leroy merlin or bricorama still too expensive for you? maybe you could try stores like la foire fouille or lidl... but i'm not really sure of the quality and choice there...

Nope, I am not missing Hawaii except for the fact that I cannot wear mini skirts here!
I finally got to see the appartment and the paint job looks alright, I think I'll get some glossy glycerin paint for the furniture and some glossy acrylic spray for any stencils I want to put on the wall or to do some leopard spots on the furniture lol

i don't know if you want a specific color but at home depot when they screw up the paint color for people they resell the paint and its cheaper than regular paint, but the bad thing is that if you need more than 1 gallon they usually don't have unless the person who got screwed ordered more than 1 gallon.

Home depot? the american one? do you think french stores do that too because I am extremely flexible on that. I mean I want basic black but the rest can go from red to hop pink to forest green lol
