Love the Coverage!
[This review was collected as part of a promotion.] I painted my kitchen cupboards which were very dark. I wanted to paint them an off white color so they needed to be primed so the color did not bleed through. I knew that Kilz would do the job since I had used it before.

    Absolutely the worst primer ever.
    DO NOT USE THIS PRODUCT!!!! That is, unless you want to do more work (e.g., sanding and smoothing the primer) or have your project look like garbage. I followed the roller recommendations and now my project looks absolutely terrible (very rough). Wife already painted over it (with latex paint) so now sanding this is going to be even more work. All the work that was done and the excitement I had for finishing my project is now filled with regret and a feeling like i wasted a few days...only to waste a few more fixing this terrible product.

    Response from Joanna, KIlz Customer CareAug 22, 2021
    Hi timmyg33, thanks for sharing your feedback. We're sorry to hear the Original Low Odor Interior Primer you used didn't provide you your desired finish.

    To get your project back on track, we'd recommend sanding the surface smooth, cleaning it with a damp cloth, allowing it to fully dry, then priming and recoating it.

    Customer satisfaction is very important to us. So, we've reached out to you directly to assist you further. We hope you have a great rest of your weekend.
      Looking for advice
      I purchased Kilz Original primer for my kitchen cabinet makeover, cabinets had melamine and are a good quality MDF. After sanding, priming, sanding, priming then used a quality latex for colour 3 sands and 3 coats I was super pleased with how they turned out. It seem as though the laytex has not cured and it is getting scrapes and nicks. What did I do wrong? Is there a sealer top coat that I need to put on? They were painted and let dry for 4 day's prior to being installed, it's been 7 weeks now and still not hardened.

            Great stuff
            [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] I bought this to refinish some old chairs and works great. Covered well and the paint sticks very good to the surface after priming. The picture is of my finished chair project. It turned out great! The kliz primer gave it a smooth surface to work on.

              Miracle primer
              [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] We purchased a 71 year old lake house. The first thing you noticed was the odor and poor paint job. We close on Friday and the first thing we are purchasing for the whole house is Kilz primer. I plan to use the paint for the kitchen cabinets

                  Excellent Coverage and Sealant
                  [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] We purchased this product as we were refinishing our living room cabinets. We wanted to ensure the existing wood stain would not bleed through, plus since I have COPD the low odor really helped. The finish product turned out great! Highly recommend this product!
