This was our second time using backdrop and we love the smaller selection of colors and convenience of ordering it online.

First I am going to say buying the essentials kit and a drop cloth made the whole experience that much better. All my tools and paint showing up on my doorstep at the same time allowed me to start immediately. I just purchased a home and wanted to live in and the feel the space before painting, so it gave me time to research companies and colors. Backdrop had limited colors but I feel in love with so many of them it felt like the right company to go with. I purchased ten color samples that I tried in multiple rooms and fell in love with Sicily Or Cypress for my living room. I wanted a deep, warm, comforting color to bring in the walls and make the 100+ year old trim around my windows pop. Well my son and I got it done in a day and throughout the day I kept standing back and saying how much I loved the color. It suits the room and the feel I was going for perfectly. I also purchased No Curfew for my bedroom that I am hoping to paint next weekend. But I am sure I will be just as thrilled with that color as I was with Sicily Or Cypress!
