We recently signed a lease and have moved into a townhome for the next 3 years. We asked if we could paint and they said sure....we even went as far as saying we would return it to its original color of white.
Fast forward a week... We have painted and moved in. The landlady stopped today and was beyond upset that we used semi-gloss paint. We have 3 kids. We need something that we can wipe down. We know it is easy to care for that is why we choose it. She says that you can't paint over it with flat or touch it up. Which I know both is incorrect. I touched up as needed for the 8 years we were in the other house. As far as going back it can be done. I have researched it and two coats and it should be fine.
So does she have a right to be mad when they didn't specify? I feel awful, really badly. I thought that it looked really nice and the last thing I wanted to do was make our new landlords mad. So what do you think?
