    Q:Would this be a good paint for a cement bird bath? What about the part of the birdbath that woul be filled with water?

    Answer This Question

    A:  Hi DebADoo, thank you for your question. Behr Premium Plus is okay to be applied to a concrete surface. However, it is not recommended in areas submerged in water, as the coating can fail and contaminate the water. Therefore, we do not recommend using it for the birdbath area filled with water. - Alex

          Covered well
          Great look, covered well on bare Sheetrock. Had to do a second coat on the areas I didn’t keep a good wet edge on.

              Poor coverage of area to be painted. Paint is too thick. Does not apply well.
              Response from BehrAug 3, 2022
              Hi there, thank you for your review. I'm sorry to hear that you did not get the coverage you expected and that the paint was thick and didn't apply well. Typically, our Premium Plus Paint will cover in two coats, while darker colors and porous surfaces may require additional coats. Customer satisfaction is important to us, and we appreciate your feedback. Please reach out to us directly if you need further assistance; our customer care team is happy to help you! -Ronald Behr

                Shiitake Color Review
                My husband had the entire living room, dining room and hallway painted in our new house before I saw it because I was sick with a cold. When I saw it, I was sick to my stomach, at first. I was going for a neutral beige/gray color, and this is almost brown. This color is very rich, almost a milk chocolate color. We were in a time crunch situation, so we didn’t have time to repaint. It’s been on the walls now for almost 4 years, and it’s grown on me. It’s definitely darker than I had planned, but it looks good on the walls. If you choose this paint, just be sure that your space is large enough that it won’t seem too closed in with this dark of a color. Use light color curtains and accessories, too. This helped. Paint companies always give a disclaimer that colors will look different on every monitor, but this was a huge difference in how it looks on the walls in my house.
