Low fume paint for asthma

Lowe's "Zero Voc" paint

Many of you who have been reading this blog for a while know that my first bachelor's degree is in Interior Design, and I feel that it's my duty to "practice" new ideas on my house to keep my skills sharp!

Part of that includes painting, and a new coat of paint is the cheapest and easiest way to change the whole look of a room. But it can also be very smelly. And oftentimes smells that don't bother other people can set off an asthma attack for someone with asthma. (I tell people that when you have asthma, your body reacts like a "Drama Queen" and over-reacts to everything!)

I found this "zero voc" paint at Lowe's, I have used it before and there is very little smell to it. When I used it to paint some of the rooms in my house, it didn't bother any of us or our asthma. I'm sure some of the other home-improvement or paint stores have similar paint.

Just one more little tidbit to think about if you have any spring cleaning and home improvement projects coming up. Any little thing I can do to make breathing easier for myself and my kids, I am all for it!
