Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by KochvilleDi Beautiful for furniture!
I used various tinted colors of this product to paint furniture for our granddaughters. I spent a lot of time just prepping the furniture, stripping, sanding and patching, before I painted. I sanded a LOT, starting with 60 grit and working my way up to 320, using 3M sandpaper (my favorite). My husband thought I was nuts, but he agreed it was worth all of the prep work when he saw the finished product.
I used the best foam rollers Home Depot sold, and the key to a good paint job on furniture is to only paint in one direction with the best foam rollers you can afford. If you've painted a lot of walls like I have, it took a while to get into the habit, but it was definitely worth the effort, with minimal paint strokes as a result. For places where I had to use a paint brush, my go-to brush is always a Purdy angled brush. And as with every paint project, two coats required.
It's been about 3 months, and so far the furniture is holding up good. I was happy with the way the paint job turned out, and would recommend this type of paint for furniture. One of my cardinal rules for a successful paint job is to use the best paint rollers and brushes you can afford, and Home Depot has a good selection to choose from. Please note that I am not a professional; this is just a hobby for me.

I grabbed this paint off the shelf as there was a long line at the paint department, was caught by the description for painting over wood. As I was painting over wood trim thought this would be perfect. Got home and realized this is not the standard Behr Trim paint –have never used oil and was not familiar with ALKYD paint --- but was very pleasantly surprised with the results. I did my prep work by sanding. Nice a thick – definitely requires two coats, but the results is perfect. Used in the master bed/bath suite, and two walk in closets. Will use it in other areas now as well. I also noticed the there was way less lingering smell.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by violet Wouldn't order again
This product was recommended by an online DIY'er. I have always had great luck with Behr paint, but this particular one was not stocked in the store in my town so I had to order it. It says white, but actually had a yellow in it. The tint I wanted also had some yellow, so the final result was way off what I wanted. The Lowe's team gave me a store credit and were very nice.

We used this to paint our kitchen cabinets and love the way the paint applied and looked after drying. The Behr representative recommended this product and we couldn't be more pleased. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

They sent my money back after this product did not dry for weeks. Still very tacky. and unusable. Thank goodness I used it in test mode first.
Great Behr Customer service.!
Wish they would fix this product. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by mamasitahensley In no way replaces oil based paint!
I used this product to paint several antique pieces of furniture. I have always used an oil based paint in the past. When I went to my home depot to buy the oil based paint they sell, I was told they do not carry it due to regulation's in Arizona and I would need to buy the Alkyd paint to replace it. The sales rep just happened to be there at the time. He assured me that this product was a fantastic product and I would love it. It was a much better product than the oil base product, rest assured. Well!!!! It is not!! It dries thick, sticky and has a latex look. This product may be fine for some things, but furniture and cabinets it is not. Just to let you know I sanded everything well, primed and then used the alkyd paint. I am very sad about my antique pieces!
