    Default 'ceiling' Paint?

    I need to paint my basement and found a couple of gallons of white paint in the 'oops' color section of my favorite store. It wasn't until I got it home that I noticed the label read 'CEILING' paint. What is the difference between wall and ceiling paint if it's all acrylic latex?

    Default Re: 'ceiling' Paint?

    I recently saw this explanation on www.dutchboy.com ...

    "Ceiling paints are a special category of interior paints. They have an ultra-flat sheen that helps hide imperfections, deflect and diffuse light throughout a room, and eliminate harsh shadows. Their normally bright white color helps a room look larger and brighter. Quality ceiling paints are formulated to be more spatter resistant, making the paint job easier and neater."

    Thank you for the info! Sounds like just what I need to brighten up those dingy cinder-block walls. Of course if there was ANY moisture at all I'd spend the extra money for a water-blocking paint, but we are blessed with a nice, dry basement (the first dry basement I've ever had!) that already has a solid, but ugly coat of paint. Looks like I'll be busy this weekend...
