Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Shimmy Terrible color coverage
Used this paint to cover a previously painted wall and the color coverage was horrible. The original color was a lighter green and the top cover was a cream white. After one coat the green was easily showing through the top coat and the room needed a second coat.
I could see if there was a dramatic change in color like a deep red to white, but the original color was a soft color and this wouldn't cover in one coat. This was the worst coverage of any paint I've used in the past 30 years.
When I went back to the store, they said this paint doesn't claim to cover in one coat; it says "hides in fewer coats'
Won't be using Behr paints again.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by JPN80 French Silver PPU18-05 mainly medium lavender grey, Needs at least 2 coats for knockdown textured walls
Packaging: The paint cans were well packaged and no paint leaked from the cans.
Paint Color: French Silver PPU18-05 is a medium lavender grey in most light; I thought it would be more of a medium blue grey based on how the color appeared on my computer, which is partially correct. If it's overcast, it looks medium grey. Likewise, if it's bright and sunny, the color looks more blue-ish medium grey. Despite being a moody color (i.e. the color appears to change in different light), it's a neutral tone that does well with most colors except for cooler medium blues. For example, it matches well with builder grade beige paint (in my case, Sherwin Williams D.R. Horton White), Behr Baritone 680F-7 (deep brownish purple - another moody color), and Behr Parsnip 440A-1 (light minty green).
Paint Application, Cleanup, and Smell: This paint was still too thick to apply with a nap roller or a Wooster brush; once I thinned the paint with water per manufacturer recommendations for paint sprayer application, the paint adhered to the walls smoothly. Since my walls are knockdown textured, I have to have 2 coats of any paint brand and this one was no exception.
Cleanup was easy - just wash painting supplies in soap and water.
The paint smell from the eggshell finish was about the same as Glidden eggshell paint finishes; SH and BM eggshell finishes are a bitter stronger than Behr's.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by jevo Great Coverage
I chose to use Behr's White Metal color and it came out great. My painters have been able to achieve great coverage in one coat over an olive green. The color is true to the sample and paint chip. So far, I am very satisfied.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Thapickypainter EXCELLENT PAINT AND COVERS VERY WELL
This is the brand I strongly recommend to my customers that hire me. It covers in one coat, if applied right with the exception, dark reds or burgundies do require two coats. But I used Valspar in past and that brand always requires two to three coats for good coverage, it is like, transparent when it goes on and I am not happy when I walk onto a job and see Valspar or any other brand of paint. I know I will be applying two or more coats.
STRONGLY RECOMMEND THIS BRAND FOR GOOD COVERAGE, GOOD QUALITY AND PROFESSIONAL COVERAGE.
If you don't get good coverage with one coat then you are not applying it properly and are not using the right nap with roller covers. There is a difference in naps on covers and you must know the right nap to use on different surfaces. If in doubt, get online and do your research but this is the only brand I prefer to use and I am a professional interior painter with 25 years experience.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Cwbyjon Outstanding product and price
As always Home Depot laveen met and exceeded performance standards with the custom color mixing and service. I use an older color not on the displays and they looked it up and was able to match the color perfectly. Paint is top notch with a very high end look and feel. I buy and sell homes and the paint I use from Home Depot is always noted as looking very expensive

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Lauriew Excellent coverage!
Love this paint! I only used 2 1/2 gallons for what took 3-4 the last time I painted the same space. It covered a dark red orange wall with one good coat of the light green gray I used. My only problem is that I bought one gallon too much.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Thequeen Not impressed
I want to start out by saying I have always bought Behr paint because it covers so well. This type of Behr paint is the medium priced paint. I thought the coverage was average. Usually one gallon was enough to do a project. This time I will have to go back to complete my project. Even since Behr went to the Marquee brand, I don't think there other brands are as good. Might be switching to another brand after this.
