Customer Questions & Answers

We want to paint our kitchen cabinets (vineer plywood) to another color. Will this work?

Asked by: isha
This would work for you and it would make a wonderful cabinet color! I recommend to first wipe your cabinets down with TSP to get rid of any grease or other residue. It might take off the shine but that's good. Then sand your cabinets and prime them. Even though this paint works as a primer as well, I find it is still better to prime before to get good coverage. After you prime sand lightly again and apply your paint. After your paint dries you will need to seal it. I highly recommend sealing it 3 times. Kitchen cabinets get wet and dirty easily and you don't want to ruin your wonderful paint job. I use Minwax polyacrylic seal and it works great! Hope this helps!

Is there a warning that may cause cancer or birth defects using this paint?

Is this paint safe for baby nursery?
Asked by: Firsttimeparentconcern
Hi Firsttimeparentconcern, Thanks for your question! Our paint label states the following: WARNING! This product contains chemicals known to the state of California to cause cancer and birth defects or other reproductive harm. Once the paint film has cured (this takes at least 30 days), it is considered non-toxic and won't pose a threat to anyone coming in contact with the coating through sitting or touching. This paint isn't Baby Safe or FDA approved though, so we don't recommend applying it to surfaces that will be exposed to the mouth (like a crib). Best wishes! - Sara

What's semi gloss

Asked by: wiz92
Hello wiz92, Great question. A semi-gloss sheen is the finish of the paint and leaves the wall glossy. Best regards, Kevin

1 gal. #MQ5-28 Dawn Gray One-Coat Hide Matte Interior Paint is rated 3.8 out of 5 by 465.

I have painted a lot in my time, and I have used many different paints/brands (including other Behr products); they all had their pros/cons and overall I had been happy with Behr paint. With that said, I am extremely disappointed and I doubt I will use Behr paints again, or a least not the Marquee. For the price point and marketing hype, I expected much more. The job took 3-4 coats and twice as long; it should have only taken 2 coats; I wasted valuable time and money, which I should have not had to lose. I sincerely hope the product will hold up to the tests of time and routine maintenance; however, based on the early issues, I am very skeptical.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Covers great with one coat Our daughter just went off to college so we thought we would surprise her and remodel her bedroom. This paint went beautifully over the previous blue paint that she wanted when she was little. One coat really did the job. I ran out right at the end and had to buy another but it was worth it. I will definitely buy this brand again for our next remodeling project.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best Purchase EVER Tried the Behr Marquee 2 years ago to paint a recently acquired Condo and had it rented before closing. Thought we would try this paint, as in a hurry to have ready for the tenants. Fabulous, LR, Kitchen, 2 bathrooms & 2 bedrooms done in a weekend and ALL covered in 1 coat. Could not believe. Just used again in another condo, covered in 1 coat a "Horrible" dark brown, almost black, 1 coat coverage with a light grey..... could not believe !!!!!!!!!!!!!! Finished a 3 bd, 2 ba, Lr, Great room. Dr. & kitchen in a weekend, 1 COAT !!!!! 3 gallons of paint. Cannot believe all of the horrible reviews, try again !

This is your warning to not buy this paint unless you freehand paint. I have used painter tape for years with Behr Premium paint. I thought the Marquee paint might be better so I purchased a 5 gallon bucket to re paint some of the rooms in my home. This Marquee paint is more expensive and took more than one coat, which did not bother me much, because I am used to putting two coats of paint on a wall when repainting. However, the worst part was how the paint peeled off when removing the tape. Please do not make the same mistake as me and use this paint with painter tape. Days of painting will be for nothing, because you will have to go back and paint your edges by hand. Bad product.

The paint was definitely not 1 coat. It was 2 coats plus a primer coat at least. It also would clump up and leave clumpy streaks on the wall. When I asked Home Depot staff about the guarantee, she laughed at me and said I had to contact Behr. Of course, I couldn't find any information about the guarantee on the Behr website. I've used cheaper Behr paints and they were fine, but I wouldn't recommend this Marquee paint to anyone.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Not as advertised Bought this paint because the one coat guarantee. I was told that my color was covered. Bought a new roller, even though I already had some at home. The employee said it was needed in order to work. Didn't do it at all. You can easily tell that there are white specks underneath the paint. I had already primed before and coverage was still bad. Also, the edging was done by hand and turned out darker than the recommended roller. Definitely going to be looking for a refund.

The first time was on a bed frame. That took 2 coats but I did not prime and it was almost bare wood in some areas. The bed came out great! The second was on the wall. I didn't have the time luxury of more than one coat so I went with this. Covered beautifully! It is thick but if I poured small quantities and stirred often it went on smooth. No platter! For me it was worth the money.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from One Coat - light sage green on dark brown!! My dark brown bedroom needed more light and just a new look. The paint did 99% of the job. The room was dark brown and I feared it would take multiple coats to cover. I bought the Marquee based on its tag line. It was the easiest to use and best covering paint I have ever bought. I will never buy anything different. Thanks Behr!! [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]
