I too have used the suede paint. I used it in Fawn. It is a pretty dark color and I was a little nervous. I paired it with a VERY rich chocolate brown for my trim. It was a grueling experience and my arms were incredibly tired after the 2WEEKS that it took to paint my living room and dining areas. I followed the directions to the T. I can't tell you HOW FABULOUS it looks. Everyone just loves it. It seems to just get better with age too. I did this back before Christmas and not a day goes by that I don't absolutely love it. It truly does look like suede. I live in a condo and my ceilings are normal height and I was concerned that it would make my rooms look smaller. It may just a tad, but it is so inviting!
