I recently purchased 5 gallons (in 5 separate cans) of Behr latex paint from
Home Depot. Looking back, I probably should have purchased a single 5
gallon container, but I initially felt that I would only need 3-4 gallons,
so I had to return to the store for more.
The paint was mixed at the store and all labels on the cans were the same as
far as mixtures.
However, in at least two of the cans the paint shade was somewhat different
after it was applied to the (inside) walls, resulting in a partial repaint.
Is this common when purchasing separate cans, even though the mixture should
have been the same?
I stirred each can thoroughly before application.
