The Valspar paint is a bit pricey, but I've painted a MH before and skimped on the paint.. Don't do it! Get good quality paint.


Thanks everyone, I was afraid it was going to look too "pastel" but I like it.

Denise, I brushed the first coat just to get good coverage in the nooks & crannies.. rolled the second coat.

Very nice, Curlylocks! So, is this just regular (Valspar) Exterior paint or something more?
