The PPG Diamond flat interior paint and primer is universal grey adheres well to bare or previously painted applications in one coat; it really bonded well over chalk paint that wasn't sealed or waxed. For oil based paint, at least two coats are needed to fully cover the oil based paint. The universal grey color is a bit lighter than Behr's French Silver and Rustoleum's Coastal Gray Chalk Paint; the flat paint feels like flat paint, but has more of a matte finish.

Rolls on smooth, low odor, hides stains well. Even though this paint states it has a primer and paint in one, I still like to use a prime coat when covering over gloss or semi-gloss paint. I am very impressed how well it covered. I maked pencil lines for installing a new light fixture and medicine cabinet. The paint covered the pencil mark very well with one coat. I imagine it will work well on other stains. Smooth brush application also. The paint looks very light grey in the can, but darkens on drying. Good coverage with one coat.

I am getting my home ready to sell and I need to paint some rooms and make them more a more neutral color. I selected this paint and I was going over a dark forest green. This did cover pretty well but it did take 2 coats to cover. I did figure it would because the other color was so dark. I did get a few drips from this paint so that was a little frustrating and after I had most of the hallway painted i found some runs in the paint that wasn't painted that heavy so that was frustrating. Overall it did the job I needed but wasn't thrilled with the paint.

Hi there, Covering a darker color with a lighter color can sometimes be a challenge, and we typically advise adding a primer so that you get full coverage. Sorry that the paint did not cover in one coat. We're here to further assist you so please call us at 1-800-441-9695 between 8am-5pm EST. ppgtimeless

I used this for a room in my new house that had not seen a coat over the original builders paint for 18yrs and required scraping, spackling and sanding to rid it of a hideous ceiling border and prep for fresh paint. I was impressed that this PPG Diamond flat in "Universal Grey" completely covered most of the repaired areas in one coat, as well a spot where I tested a particularly dark, metallic paint on the wall (PPG/Crinkle). I still had to apply 3 coats for the brushed ceiling cut-in, but a well soaked roller covered the walls wonderfully. I was pleased that it knocked the work in half since I had presumed 2 coats would still be necessary, considering the dry conditions. The flat finish was forgiving and I was able to simply brush over a couple spots I had missed to maintain coverage consistency. In 'normal' conditions, one gallon likely would've covered this 10x11 room with no problem, but unfortunately, even with a wide window and 2 closet doors to break up the walls, the abused drywall needed another quart to finish the job. Instead, I just used a darker gray I had on hand to create an accent wall. "Universal Grey" is just that (universal). It looks terrific and is very design friendly. It's a white-based, soft and airy, almost powdery fresh, neutral that will probably go with just about any color scheme you can throw at it. My pics may not be color accurate, but do show the contrast between this color and PPG 'Bright White" semi-gloss for reference. I've used PPG/Glidden regularly since I was old enough to paint my first bedroom and have noticed some changes in the product(s) over the recent past, but definitely would recommend the newer Diamond line for great coverage.

Poor product
Like most people complain about, is there any primer in this paint? Painted over a fairly pale blue wall and ceiling, looks like crap and dried patchy as hell. Guess I'm going to have to buy a better brand that does exactly what it says on the the tin. In future I will stay away from anything with Glidden on the name, and yes it was mixed/stirred adequately before use. Poor quality paint.

    Paints sucks, my biggest regret, do not buy!
    I hired a painter to paint my entire house one paint colour called Hush. Any time a furniture moves or hits the wall or if someone leans over on the wall or simply touches the wall that has the paint. You can visibly see splotches and smears. I've had to repurchase the same crappy paint to repaint and cover the marks. Glidden advertises the paint as washable and scrubbable but that is nonsense. I had no budget on paint but choosing this paint was a huge disappointment. I would never choose this company in fact I'd rather have Glidden come see the issues themselves. Such poor quality assurance and just a poor paint product. Even dollar store paints are better than this.

            Bought this paint to redo a bathroom ceiling. It did not cover anything and had even an off white color showing through the eggshell glidden paint. Had to go buy new paint, very disappointed.

              Great paint in almost the whole house.
              We started painting the house with this product for the cost. Now almost 8 years later we still get it for the quality. The paint goes on well and in most cases is done in 1 coat. There are usually a few places that need a touch up, these are usually in rougher texture areas. The clean up is easy with water. I have used the same brush to edge with for years now. The paint has been very durable. With kids the walls get dirty frequently. Marker, crayon, ink, and pencil have come right off the semi-gloss surfaces. It does chip off on the corners but I am pretty sure that is just the nature of the beast with kids, toys and corners. It just gets touched it up from time to time. We have not had chips or peeling anywhere else. We have used this paint in various colors. We have it in the living spaces, kitchen and bathrooms and are pleased with it. Just picked up 5 gallons more to start the toy room.

                Love this color. It was my first time painting ever and was a lot of work! I needed 2 coats to cover the wall even though the previous color was light too. It was not covering 100% with 1 coat (it left uncovered "holes" if that makes sense). My bedroom is 10x13 and I needed to purchase a second gallon (of course only needed about 1/3) but I needed two coats! Would absolutely recommend this color. I paired with a stark white for trim. Looks very nice, stylish and just what I was wanting. It was just painted a week ago but doesn't seem to be "washable" as it states but my father said it will take a month to full cure and set so "maybe" it will be washable but has not been yet.

                Awful in every way
                This is the Popov Vodka of paint - seems OK for an evening project, but in the morning the pain reveals itself. It does not apply like any paint I have come across, the application can best be described as smearing. It remains sticky for hours, nay days, and then peels off months later. The instructions say not to thin, which is probably to prevent even more abysmal coverage. The only good feature is the lack of odor, which probably means that there is a complete lack of active ingredients. It sucks.

                  I bought this to redo my bathroom and after allowing 5 days of drying it washes off the walls and peels. I just wasted so much money on this AND have to redo my walls. I would not recommend this paint to anyone!

                    Well I really got busy today.Now my porch is done and my shed is the same color. Went on real easy over a darker grey that I had on the porch. The Universal Grey was already on my shed and made it look clean and like new. I like Glidden paint and will always use it for outside and in my home. Had it delivered and it was packed perfect. One I had to pick up at the store. I always trust Glidden paint!
