Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by JPN80 Ethiopia PPU5-6 tan-grey color, covers well on unfinished and/or stripped furniture, produces hard top coat
Ethiopia PPU5-6 is a tan-grey color and I used it to cover a table top that was previously stripped and sanded.
Since the paint is supposed to have a primer built in, I didn't apply primer to the piece.In addition, I also didn't dilute the paint as I normally do when painting on the walls; under this application, I didn't find it was difficult to spread the paint using a nap roller and Shur-line trim and touch-up pad.
After one coat of the paint, it covered the entire piece; however, I was worried about the durability of only one coat on the table top so I applied another. The color was richer after the 2nd coat of paint but then the roller started shedding; so after the 2nd coat dried, I sanded the top with 220 grit sandpaper and then applied the final coat of paint. After 24 hours, the table top felt dry but I know it isn't fully cured yet; I waited 72 hours before placing anything on the top to keep it from damaging the surface. I opted not to apply a coat of polyurethane since the surface seemed pretty solid after 24 hours; a week later, and the surface hasn't been damaged with heavy use from school bags, books, and toys.
Cleanup was simple - just use soap and water.

Bought this for my kids room. This paint is thin and does not cover well. With a 2 hour recoat time it takes forever when you need 2-3 coats just to get decent coverage. I will never buy this paint again. The last time I bought paint I went with Glidden, and now I remember why. This paint just does not give good coverage, if you want to use it, buy more than expected because you will be doing at LEAST one more coat than you thought you would need.

If I could give less than 1 star for this product I would. Not only did I use more paint in a single room that I ever have, this paint does not cover in 1 coat. And don't think about going over an area more than once, the paint just wipes right off and it won't recover. The walls were properly prepared and washed. This wasn't the case with just 1 gallon - 3 gallons later I'm still having the same problem. If it wasn't tinted and unreturnable I'd be asking for all my money back. Never again will I stray from Pittsburgh Paints or Sherwin Williams.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Dads2vette Great Paint poor sq footage coverage
Love the coverage on a new wall. Easy application and one coat coverage. I have used hundreds of gallons of Behr paints and will continue to but there was a problem with this paint. I have no idea why and plan on contacting Behr and HD about this but the coverage I got for the paint I bought was nowhere near what the information said. It's suppose to cover 400 square feet and I covered about 260. That's 65% of quoted amount. I've never run into this problem before and that is why I gave it a poor value rating. It was applied to a textured wall but I have done that before without using this much product.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Teabass Decent coverage but don't expect to do just 1 coat
Goes on easy but I found the coverage ability is not great. It does cover fairly well and much better than cheaper paints but still may require several coats depending on your project. For example, a new primed 6 panel interior door took 2 coats and a 3rd would have been nicer but not required unless you are a perfectionish like me.
We also had to put 2 coats on several doors that had been previously painted white and 4 coats on trim that was previously painted brown. In these examples we were painting white onver white or white over brown.

One coat of Zinsser bulls eye 123 for good grip, one coat of Kilz 2 for better coverage to avoid 2 coats of Bher Premium Plus Ultra. How foolish was I. Splotchy results has me dedicating another day for a second coat with 6 days left to putting it up for sale. DISSAPOINTING
