The Reviews

Being able to move the swatches around and have the large scale was fantastic. The shipping was quick and the paint quality is phenomenal!

Kelsey, Vancouver, WA

We painted a room that was a creamy white with this color and I worried it would take a lot of coats, but there was such great coverage.

Jill, Nashville, TN

I got a swatch and when the paint arrived it was just like the swatch. It top quality paint, easy to work with and great coverage. It arrived fast in and in nice packaging.

The adhesive samples from backdrop are LEGIT. I wanted to cover my wall with them. The colors look so good, the paint blends perfectly, and customer service is top notch. I recommend Backdrop to ANYBODY for ANY project. You won’t regret it.

Bryan, Overland Park, KS

This paint is amazing! The fact that it doesn’t smell is totally worth it, but the coverage and way it went on the walls was seamless.
