Again, not even on my worst enemy would I wish this paint. Unfortunately bought this Glidden paint (one for the ceiling, one for my walls and one for the trim of my living room)- worst mistake ever. You need more than two coats even for light colors and stains, it is splotchy, goes on like goo. Needless to say, I hate painting thanks to this product. I don't remember any other time painting my home being so frustrating! I thought I could trust Glidden as it has been around for ever. Spend the extra money on any other brand. I shouldn't have to feel this frustrated and failing for doing something I've done countless times before and with less paint.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Rory great price and good coverage
i bought this to paint my walls after my 3 year old went through his wanna be artist stage with the crayons. it went on great and covered well.i had to go over a few places again but overall it did the job.
i will buy this product again when i need to paint. i recommend this paint very much for the price and quality of the finished wall.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by jrod300 MIddle of the road at best
This is not the worst paint I've encountered, but certainly far from the best.
If you're spraying/using an airless, you'll probably get better results than if painting by hand/rolling as it's gonna take you a few coats to get you the coverage you desire. I will be using the rest of my bucket to spray my garage. Behr 100 Plus Dead Flat has been the better out of 3 home depot low-end price flat white/ceiling paint I've encountered.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by MonktonBuilder Great Product
I have always used Glidden 5 gallon products for priming and texture coating new sheetrock, prior to application of satin or semi gloss top coats. Best value ever and consistent quality coverage. Don't expect it to cover over a dark color or stains - it is a very basic paint and white after all. Have always been able to use one coat over the initial prime coat for ceilings, but I was impressed at how nice it looked on the walls as well. I will go back to this product every time I need a basic coat of paint. Very cost effective. I do not have any experience with using this paint tinted.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by PainterPete cheap flat paint that hides well
This is paint in its simplest form. Flat white. It was recommended by a pro for ceiling white and a primer. The labeling used to state it could be used as a primer, but they changed it two years ago, most likely for marketing reasons so the can market their specific primers. I am a professional dry wall installer and sometimes I paint.this is excellent primer on new drywall as well as other primer needs. It is a fantastic ceiling paint whose high hiding capabilities are excellent for this application. Don't expect a washable paint as that it is not....BUT IT DOES go on well and cleans up well. I have not found and severe covering issues if applied properly...

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Dakota Worst paint I ever used
Terrible paint. Bought this paint to do some touch-ups in the guest bedroom. As as homeowner, I have been painting for over 20 years and this is the WORST paint I have ever used. Paint dried blotchy and I had to go back and repaint several sections. Took multiple coats to cover a white decorative stripe. Even though I had a sample of my original color, the Glidden color came out a slightly different color so ended up having to repaint entire room. With all the problems with this paint, what should have been a two day job took over a week. Would never buy again.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Mastercarft209 Waste of money - Thin, Not really white, poor coverage
Read reviews and thought this was a good but for money. painted small section and quit. buckets sitting in garage 98% full and no use for it.
Had to replace it spent $80 at Sherman Williams and done in one coat beautiful.
Don't be cheap with paint it will bite you. I learned my lesson again!

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by DadTheBuilder Good flat ceiling paint
As I started to roll this on the ceiling I thought I'd have to do two coats because it looked thin. Thirty minutes later it had dried to a solid white with only one coat. I roll and then cross-roll areas and was very, very happy with the results. The price can't be beat.
