This paint has the best coverage I've ever experienced!
The Behr Dynasty Back to Nature One-Coat Paint is the best paint I’ve ever used for coverage, ease of brush and roller coating, clean up and color stability after the coating dries. The convenient “easy pour” spout that comes with the gallon can of paint makes it easy to keep spills and sloshing to a minimum a simple task. The paint flowed smoothly from the spout with no gurgling or splashing so clean-up was simplified. The switch from roller to brush for touch-up is smooth and no change is evident in the painted surfaces after the paint has cured. The paint carries no harsh odor and I found the paint smell very easy to tolerate during and after the application. The paint roller and brushes washed clean very quickly with cold tap water using a gentle massaging motion from a gloved hand.
The BEHR DYNASTY 1 gal. #S340-4 Back to Nature One-Coat Hide Semi-Gloss Enamel Interior Stain-Blocking Paint & Primer is a nice paint, it has a very creamy consistency and spreads well with both a roller and a brush. BEHR makes a hard wearing, durable paint, the Dynasty selection is made especially to resist scuffs. I found it very easy to use and clean up was simple. The paint has a plastic lid instead of metal which means you will not have any risks of rust. They also have a small screw off lid that you can attach the spout so you can pour without a mess.
This review is being written on the Behr Dynasty 1 Gallon #S340-4 Back to Nature One-Coat Hide Semi-Gloss Enamel Interior Stain Blocking-Paint & Primer (whew that’s a mouthful. I dare you to say that 3 times really fast). OK let’s get to it. This is Home Depots newest line of what they call “Everything you want in a paint, now all in one can”. I’m still a little confused if Home Depot puts this new “Dynasty” paint line above their Marquee paint line? (the Dynasty is $10 more a gallon). This is a Graphic Charcoal paint. It covers stains while putting down a final coat of paint all with one coat. I had my doubts but, I applied it to several different test areas, and it did cover. I always give my paint projects 2 coats of paint no matter what but, when I did a test area the 2nd coated area looked just as good as the single coated area. Don’t get me wrong I’m sure certain jobs will need 2 coats but for the most part one will do the job. It says a Gallon can cover up to 400 sq ft and dries in about an hour with zero to low fumes. And I did find that to be true. It cleans up with soap and water. This is the most expensive paint I’ve ever used but it did hold up. With that said I’m not sure if I’d buy it unless it was on sale.
I ordered this particular paint after having excellent results with the Behr Premium line. We’re still in the process of getting situated/unpacking in a new house nevertheless the interior designer (wife) is already choosing interior colors and finishes. Neutral gray and putty colors were utilized in the house we just sold. Not so in this one! My first paint project will be painting a windowless hallway and laundry room with Behr’s Matte finish Back to Nature a pleasant light green-with-yellow undertone paint. I have used Behr’s paint and primer in one products with great success in our old home and chose this Dynasty product as a result. I like the all plastic container (no can rust if a touch up is needed down the road) and the convenience of a built in pour spout capability. I anticipate no issues with coverage odor or hiding based on my past experiences and will try to provide an update ‘if necessary’ after I’ve completed the job.
BEHR DYNASTY 1 gal. #S340-4 Back to Nature One-Coat Hide Semi-Gloss Enamel
This is some serious paint. It features advanced stain repellency and unmatched scuff resistance and fast-drying technology with one-coat hide. One gallon will cover up to 400 sq ft. The Back To Nature color is quite pleasant and trendy looking. It's a nice mix of soft greenish tan with a hint of yellow. I haven't had it up long to attest to the durability of the stain and scuff resistance, but it seems like some quality paint.
BEHR DYNASTY - BEHR DYNASTY 1 gal. #S340-4 Back to Nature One-Coat Hide Matte Interior Stain-Blocking Paint & Primer
The BEHR DYNASTY 1 gal. #S340-4 Back to Nature One-Coat Hide Matte Interior Stain-Blocking Paint & Primer is a great paint to use. One coat did an excellent job for me. I really like the application and the final results. I like the can and lid cover makes it easy to pore the paint out the can into a paint tray and then store the paint if you don't use all the paint. The coverage area of the paint was within the expected results I was looking for with the one gallon can.
I really like everything about this paint, for starters, the can opening plastic coated and the lid is plastic that way there isn’t rust buildup. Nothing is worse than having bits of rust fall in your paint. The lid has an opening for a spout that is included. It is easily unscrewed to insert the spout for ease of pouring without spilling. The paint has a very creamy consistency when stirred and when painting, and it covers very well with one coat. One can is said to cover approximately 400 square feet, dries in an hour and you can apply a second coat in two hours. It cleaned my brush up really well with soap and water. I will be getting more of this brand of paint for other jobs I need to do around my house.
This paint goes on nicely, really covers in one coat as advertised. Finish is a matt surface, so looks great after it dries, hiding minor imperfections on the wall. Clean-up is easy with just soap and water. The plastic container has a nice snap fit cover that closes tightly without the need for a hammer. Also includes a pour spout which is convenient.
The BEHR DYNASTY 1 gallon #S340-4 Back to Nature One-Coat Hide Eggshell Enamel Interior Stain-Blocking Paint & Primer works as promised.
I do like the dual paint and primer in one product as this saves time and money because one coat covers the wall and provides a great paint job. I had to wait and let it smooth and level out before I was able to see the smooth finish that I was looking for on a cement wall. The color looks great and appears that it will last. Behr has several video that I reviewed and found tips for a better paint job and finish. You can find the video at https://www.behr.com/consumer/how-to/interior/ and you can view the videos attached. If it has been a while since you have painted, I’m sure you will enjoy the video and get some painting tips that you may have forgotten.
I asked for Behr Ultra, not knowing I would be getting "Scuff Defense". Strongly disliked it when did a test board, refused to do whole wall in it. Bought same color in a different brand to do the job. Never asked nor wanted primer in my paint when Behr added that which caused very streaky walls. Now they have added something else I don't want.
