Answer: 
Yes on walls, trim and cabinets with proper preparation-cleaning, sanding or liquid sandpaper. No more than 2 thin coats is needed once surface is porous-water is able to penetrate rather than bead up on surface.

We had to wash all the walls and ceiling from the cement dust. It washed off well even though it was just freshly painted. I went over the ceiling and walls again because we found some areas that I didn't get the first time. Good Luck

Answer: 
You may need to sand your cabinets or maybe even prime them before repainting them. If they recommend a cabinet paint, that is what I would use. Make sure to use a good brush and/or roller so there aren't any lines when dried. Apply two coats for durability and scrub ability.
Do Not use Dutch Boy paints for anything you want to clean, the paint comes off on the rag.

Well,
Any paint can be a good paint. It all depends on preparation. Personally, I like natural wood or stained cabinets. However, the times I've had to paint them, I use a primer first, then a latex paint. Latex is easier to clean, which makes it nice in kitchens.

Keep in mind where your cabinets will be. For example, cabinets above a stove top are subject to heat, steam, and grease. Overtime, any paint will begin to break down due to these factors. Prime them first with a good quality latex primer, this will lock in the paint (top coat) and also protect the wood underneath. Then paint them with your choice of paint. I like Behr Premium, and in kitchens a latex enamel gloss will give you not only a great look, but also will withstand the environment better than a latex flat.

Thank you for posting your question. Unfortunately we really need more information in order to respond fully and correctly. What substrate were you painting on? What was the condition of the substrate? Was it a glossy surface? Stained? Was it damaged? What product was used to prime initially?

Dear Ellie:
Thank you for posting your question. Unfortunately we really need more information in order to respond fully and correctly. What substrate were you painting on? What was the condition of the substrate? Was it a glossy surface? Stained? Was it damaged? What product was used to prime initially?
Following back label instructions, properly preparing any surface prior to painting is important. Loose paint must be removed, dirt and grease washed off and substrate allowed to dry. New stucco, plaster or masonry should cure for 30 days before painting. Also, any glossy surfaces should be scuff sanded and allowed to dry. Sanding is not required between coats. BEHR PREMIUM PLUS ULTRA can be used as a primer for properly prepared uncoated or painted interior surfaces, including woods that contain tannins to seal the surface and block stains.
If you can expand on your issues, we can add more specifics. Wishing you luck with your project.

Usually primer is not required unless its a bare surface that was never painted before, or if you are trying to cover patch work or stains.

But now that you have the first coat on there, I doubt you will need to sand. Follow the instructions on the can carefully, pay attention to the recommended room temperature when painting, and stir the paint thoroughly, before and during the painting process. If you are still having problems, then its possible the paint is defective, its not common but it can happen. I have been using Behr for a long time, their paint is a good value.

Rated 4.5 out of 5 by 544 reviewers.
Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Multiple Coats for Ulra Pure White I have had good success with the Behr paints, and rarely have had to apply a second coat for any color. Until now. The Ultra Pure White was applied to a bright white wall, but absolutely needed a second coat. Had I known this, I would have upgraded to the Marquee. BUT, read the fine print and see that even the Ultra Pure White in the Marquee label also requires more than one coat, even though it is represented as a one coat paint. Accept that you will have to apply two or more coats for Ultra Pure White. No need to spend the additional 50% for the Marquee when a second coat will be necessary. I am going to shop around for a one coat ultra pure white from other manufacturers to see if there is a satisfactory one coat product available. August 19, 2016
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by 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. June 17, 2016
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Terrible for bathrooms We tried this product for our master bath renovation because we were curious about a new brand (typically, we use Sherwin Williams or Valspar) and there was a $5 rebate on Behr making it much cheaper than either of the aforementioned paints. I will never buy Behr again for any house of mine, if I can help it. After two coats of a cream color paint over Amber walls, the old color is still evident underneath showing through as dark streaks. After peeling off the edging tape, the Behr peeled off in large chunks with it. I could excuse the paint as being poor in humid conditions, but the coverage is so bad. I will gladly choose Valspar any day for a few dollars more for a true overcoat paint. July 21, 2016
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Junk I have tried each level of Behr paint including the premium ultra and I am on my 4th coat and will need a 5th. I laugh every time I see the commercial where the girlfriend calls and says she is on her way and the guy paints the room before she gets there. I always used Benjamin Moore in the past but thought I would give Behr a shot but I am going back to the other paint. I find Behr just does not cover! It is suppose to be an all in one paint but guess what, when you are on your 5th coat there is a problem. I am painting over a light aqua color. I also had the same issue painting over my medium brown stained woodwork and it chips off very easy! I sanded and used Zin primer first and it is still chipping and I just did it, and I live alone so not like any one is being rough with it! And yes I let it cure before adding a second coat. I waited a few days and in one room waited a week and it still chipped! It is easy to clean, so hence the 1 star. July 31, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Silver Screen 770E-2: Painted cabinets without primer with excellent results I was curious to find if the paint job would last if I didn't paint the builder-grade honey oak cabinets with primer first as recommended by various bloggers, tv personalities, and tradesmen. Since this cabinet was in the laundry room I figured I give it a shot; if it didn't work, then I could always distress it . Paint Application: I followed Behr's instructions on how to paint a cabinet (http://www.behr.com/consumer/how-to/interior/how-to-paint-a-cabinet) using just the PPU Interior Semi-gloss paint in Silver Screen 770E-2. In total, I applied 3 thin coats of paint to the cabinet, allowing each coat to dry at least an 1 hr in between; if I applied too much, I made sure to spread it out as evenly as could with 1" Wooster brush before it started setting in. However, I didn't manipulate the paint too much either when applying it to the cabinet; I know from past experiences if it's manipulated too much, the paint will start "bunching up" - just like when kneading bread, don't overwork it. I also used one of the bigger Crayola paint brushes in the 5pc or 6pc sets (sold at retail stores) for the stiles and the opening and to touch-up sections as needed. I was surprised that the graining pattern was still visible because sometimes paint and primer combos fill-in the graining - so this was a major plus since I like the graining but not the honey oak color. Paint Smell, Dry time: The paint barely had a smell and I believe this might be attributed to the base; the other colors (i.e. Behr's French Silver, Ethiopia, Russian Blue) used in different applications were darker, used either a medium or deep base, and had a stronger scent - not as strong as oil-based paint but definitely noticeable. In addition, this paint seemed to dry faster than the medium and darker paints as well. Paint Cleanup: Just soap and water :) Overall, I'm really pleased the cabinet has turned out well; this paint helped reduced steps (i.e. additional primer coats), dried within a reasonable amount of time, and the cabinets don't feel tacky to the touch either. Can't wait to tackle powder room cabinets in Behr Thermal S440-7 and kitchen cabinets in Behr Frost 57. October 12, 2015
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by poor coverage Required more than 2 coats on prior white surface and still can see streaks. May 13, 2016
Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Multiple Coats I recently painted two brand new french doors (not pre primed). After two coats you could still see through the paint in areas. I am not sure if it was due to the fact the doors were brand new or if was truly a paint issue. I also used it on pre-primed trim and it covered fine. The paint seemed to cover well on anything that is pre-primed. I have a cabinet to paint that is unprimed. I expect it to take two coats. It will be interesting to see how well if covers. It took a gallon to paint all my trim. However, I am headed back to purchase another gallon to complete the job this weekend. January 30, 2015
Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Doesn't stick to all surfaces We bought this product in 3 different colors and applied it to 4 different surfaces. New drywall, unfinished wood, 60 year old trim and a 60 year old wall that we had stripped the wallpaper from. It DOES NOT stick to new drywall/sheetrock or reused trim for long. It looked good for a month or two, but now every time something bumps it, it peels and nicks VERY easily. We have to completely resand the trim and repaint the entire trim and new sheetrock. I'm more frustrated with the time that this is going to take than the $130 we dropped on the paint. It's sticking to the unfinished wood really well. March 1, 2016
