farrow and ball paint 2.5L 3 for 2 (£90) @ Homebase

LocalFound 27th Apr
Homebase have farrow and ball paints on offer at 3 for 2, at £45 for a 2.5l can thats a good saving, normally farrow and ball is excluded from multibuys.
Or you could go to Johnstone/Crown decor centres and get the product colour matched and still be cheaper and a better product that will require LESS coats, but for those who just must have f and b to tell the neighbours.. and the 3rd coat it usual requires its a great deal.

If my neighbours knew I'd used paint costing that much, they'd break in and try to take it off the walls
Price of it....sod off.

I've used f+b once, and I don't think I'll be using it again, admittedly it does have a nice chalky finish, however, it's not washable, and painting with it is a pain, 3 coats, 2 tins to do one bedroom. I prefer Dulux, their easycare paints are easy to paint with, look nice, and they are washable, and the best part, they're more than half the price of f+b!

Never has a truer comment been said! This stuff has gave me nightmares over the years, extra work, patchy finish.

Not if you are a decorator who bought 3 tins at homebase for a client last month, thats the worst deal

You need to move house.
Its good stuff... If you are getting a poor finish then you are using it wrong. Bad workman and all that. It is expensive though... but this is a good deal for this stuff. Its about the colours too! hot!

Nope it 100% is not as good as other cheaper brands. Armstead durable matt and dulux diamond matt are 2 better finishes for cheaper.

The dulux diamond matt is almost like a soft sheen paint, plenty decorators who wont touch the stuff, amstead durable matt is a better and cheaper paint, same goes for quick dry satin, amstead knocks spots of the expensive complete utter rubbish dulux trade gear, read reviews online others tend to agree.
We’ve got it all over the house. I bought a tin to do some retouching then went back a few months later to do more, opened it and it had gone off, stunk worse than an Arabs sandals.
£90??
And you wonder why the Aussies are going out of business
I just painted the kitchen with a tin of paint from Asda. Went on great, looks great and only cost £8. (On sale from £12)
Estate emulsion is hard work.
Modern emulsion is superb paint and great to use.

If you think dulux anything is better then you’re woefully uninformed.

More money than sense, one for the dreamers who think a pot of paint makes them middle class.
I went to Johnstones the other day with a painted sample of F&B on a piece of card... walked out just 5mins later with matched chalk paint (they call it Flat Mat) and a heavier wallet. They didn’t even need to scan my sample... they’ve got all f&b colours preset in their machine!

Yes, we did, got them to scan the colour off the F&B test card at Homebase, worked perfectly and got a tester pot done which had the paint code on it. Took code to Wickes when they were doing 3 for 2 on all paint, coupled to a voucher the woman in the store gave us, we ended up getting 15l of easycare dulux for just over £60!
I've used it a few times and it's always gone on nicely but I have read they changed the formula a while ago (probably trying to use cheaper or greener ingredients) the paint I used has lasted very well but knowing Johnstone's can match it, I'd likely use that next time.

As for making people think that using this makes them middle class is hogwash, I'm upper class and take that as an total insult
Just painted a whole house in Dulux Trade, except for the bathroom where I used f&b modern emulation. In my opinion the f&b is notice superior, and had a nice hard-wearing finish
Like all good paints, F&B is pigment rich. It has a depth of colour cheaper paints don't even pretend to be able to replicate. There is a huge difference between F&B and a copycat paint. The formula for the eggshell was changed a few years ago, I believe the emulsion is unchanged. The eggshell is still a beautiful, easy to use paint, the new formula just takes longer to dry.
Not everyone will want to spend this much on paint and not everyone will appreciate the quality but if you are looking for a bargain in a high quality paint, buy this
