Ben painted his apartment in his girlfriend’s favorite color scheme, which was cute, until they parted ways. For a clean start, host Ilana Becker and Glidden paint expert Jeremy Bohley got involved.
Bohley wanted to help Ben make a clean break from his old paint job, so he made sure to emphasize the importance of plastic on the floor, lifted tape along the trim to prevent splatter, sanding uneven surfaces, and, of course, Glidden’s Gripper White Primer and Sealer to go from a dark color to a light one without any residual tint (or breakup memories). In the end, Ben was left feeling much more at home in his space.
