Painting your home can be quite an ordeal, you need to make sure that you have all the proper tools at hand and also that you’ve cleared enough space to actually get access to the walls and spaces you plan on painting. It can be even more difficult when you have 2 dogs and a cat roaming your house, seemingly waiting for you to turn your back so they can walk in your paint tray and track the paint all across your house. Not only can they make a mess while painting, they can also scratch up your walls. So while we love our little guys, it’s important for us to consider what the best brand of paint to buy it when we set out to paint our living room. One of our dogs has a habit of scratching the walls and we have tried a few solutions to this problem with out much luck.

best paint brand to use on scratched wall

If you look closely at this picture you can see the scratched walls, it’s a bit hard to see but it took us a lot of research at our local paint store to figure out what brand would be best. In the end, we chose Benjamin Moore paint for our project and it worked out quite well, Aura is definitely a great paint to work with and it went on very well in a single coat. We used some older paint brushes and rollers we had floating around, and even thought the paint store recommended we get some new painting supplies for our project they ended up working well. I remember someone telling me to take care of your painting tools and I have always done my best to do so, I guess it paid off in the end.

So we finished the job in a couple of days and the pets have been all over the place in the room and it looks like the scratching problem won’t be an issue moving forward. I definitely recommend that you consider using Benjamin Moore as they are one of the best paint brands.
