Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Suz First time painting cabinets
We did two coats of primer on our cabinets before starting with paint. This paint seemed to cover pretty well! I painted the cases while still up, so ended up doing three coats because wanted to do them thin enough so they wouldn't drip. This kind of paint stayed tacky for a while, and even after it wasn't, it seemed like it might chip. So that's the only reason I gave it 4 stars. We actually left for a bit after finishing, and that helped the paint to fully dry without disturbance. I'm SO happy with the result though!!

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by ML Overpriced' lousy coverage.
This is suppose to be a premium paint. They charge a premium price at over $25/gallon but when I started painting the baseboard in my newly remodeled kitchen I knew it was going to be a problem, I used right within an hour after buying it where they shook it for me so I know it was well mixed. The ambient temp in my kitchen is 72º F but this paint was thick and drying as I was putting it on. Making it impossible to spread evenly and leaving brush marks. I bought the most expensive brush HD had. It doesn't cover well and leaves plenty of brush marks. My trim looks like PVC with some artificial wood grain after putting 2 coats of this slop on it.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by JenBar Terrible, watery primer--doesn't cover at all
I'm truly baffled by the positive reviews of this product. I got it because it was no-VOC, low odor--which was important since I'm pregnant and painting my baby's nursery--and we were trying to save money (we go with Benjamin Moore paint but figured we could save a bit on primer). Got this, stirred it thoroughly, and poured it...spilled some of it on the floor because it was completely runny, not creamy at all. I figured maybe I didn't stir it enough, so I tried again. Tried putting it on the walls (drywall, I was covering a dark gray paint) and was shocked at how watery it was--the primer was literally dripped down the walls as I painted. I've primed and painted many times before, so it's not that my brush was overloaded or I was somehow using it incorrectly...it's just a sub-par product. Determined not to have to return it, I figured maybe it would firm up. But after 2 coats, you could still see the dark walls right through it. Terrible product.
I returned this to the store and got Benjamin Moore's "Fresh Start" primer for only $13 more a gallon than this Behr garbage. It was creamy and thicker right in the can, and covered much more thickly and efficiently. It's not no-VOC (just low-VOC), but frankly I'd rather deal with that than have a primer that doesn't work.
That's the last time I bother with Behr products. There's a reason they're cheaper. I just don't know how anyone could be happy with this primer...I suggest trying the Ben Moore one and seeing how much easier priming can be!

I've used this primer for many tasks. As a primer, it covers well creating a nice base for your final color. I also have used it as a ceiling paint on textured ceilings (both popcorn and brush swirl). It is thick enough to cover blemishes and repairs yet thin enough to retain the texture and get into the nooks and crannies. The ceiling shown in my photo was painted with the primer using a roller. (The picture does not do the paint justice when compared to seeing it in person).

Good coverage but I have never had a paint which I didn't have to apply two coats and this is the same. But it did a good job.

Does a really good job in covering stains. Saves you on paint.
