    Not sure about the paint, but there is only one choice for your brushes

    Guys certainly get very opinionated about brushes.

    I also vote Behr for a great middle road paint that covers very well. Whatever you do, dont buy the Behr Pro. Being a contractor, we were given a 5 gallon bucket to try out and it is terrible. The paint is very watery/runny that it's a minimum 2 coat.

    I've thought I would buy some of the expensive Benjamin Moore Aura paint for a room many years ago. I love it so much, that I've used it on nearly every home improvement project since. Its very good stuff, and the color selections are great.

    Also, their trim paint, the "Advance" line or whatever, has excellent flow and was perfect for my slightly off white trim in the house. It almost looks like the results you'd expect from an oil based paint. I love it.

    The Benjamin Moore Aura Matte has worked very well on most of my bedroom walls. The times I've had to wash it, the paint worked out perfectly. I also used eggshell in the Kitchen and Bathroom. In those cases, any time I've had to wash it worked without an issue.

    I would suggest Sherwin Williams all day, every day! Their paints are the best. Yes, looking at the price per gallon will make you wonder who would ever pay that much for paint, but they almost continuously have 30% off paint and 15% off brushes/accessories. Also, if you stay with one brand (Sherwin Williams) and go with a middle of road paint now and later you want a superior paint they already have your color.
