Nice color
You can't go wrong with this, it looks little darker in pictures. The color shade change throughout the day and it looks different in morning, afternoon, evening, and night. Very pleasant and welcoming color.

    Complete Garbage Don't waste your time
    Paints way too thick like glue it pulls off brush bristles, Doesn't cover in 1 coat even with the correct color. Pulls the cut in off the walls and makes a complete mess. I have over 25 years experience and will never purchase another Behr product again.

    Hi ProPainter, thank you for your review. I'm sorry to hear that the paint was too thick and did not cover well. The paint should have a creamy consistency and cover in one coat when tinted to a one-coat color and applied over a previously painted or primed surface. 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! -Giovanna Behr

        Hello Lobos, thank you for your review. I’m so sorry the paint didn’t cover the pencil mark and left streaks on the wall. Typically, our Dynasty Paint will cover in one coat when tinted to colors from our One Coat Color Collection and applied to a previously coated surface. For covering stains or marks, we recommend spot priming with the paint before coating the full surface to help lock in the stains. Also, if the streaks left a texture on the wall, I recommend letting the paint dry, lightly sanding smooth the texture, wiping off the sanding dust, then touching up and recoating with paint. Customer satisfaction is very important to us, and we appreciate your feedback. Please feel free to reach out to our Customer Care team directly for further assistance with this. Our team is happy to help you! -Joni Behr

          The Behr Dynasty paint RUNS and so should you!
          I've been using Behr paint for many years. Thought I'd give the dynasty a try. Half way through the 2nd wall, I turned to look at the 1st wall and the paint was running and sliding down the wall! Now I'll have to let it dry and sand to start over. Run!

          Hi Laura, thank you for writing in. I'm so sorry to hear our Dynasty Eggshell was running and sliding down your wall. It's important to lightly saturate your application tool, using a 3/8 - 1/2" synthetic nap roller or a high-quality nylon/polyester brush. For any excess product while the coating is still wet, immediately brush or roll it out to distribute the paint evenly. Please feel free to reach out to us directly so we can learn more about your project and assist. We look forward to hearing from you. -Michael Behr
            Dynasty Paint
            I bought this paint for my daughters room. We chose Polar Bear in the Dynasty and it certainly exceeded my expectations especially since we were painting the color Polar Bear over Tiffany Blue. This paint went on smoothly and covered well.

              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.

              unique finish
              BEHR DYNASTY Black Eggshell finish this is quiet the unique finish. Interior stain blocking paint with primer. This paint is the best covering paint I have ever used. Another great product by BEHR the only paint I will ever use. It covers printed drywall in one coat no priming or anything. Covers in one coat saves time and money. You won't find any other paint better than this paint.

              Nice Color Paint
              This Behr Dynasty 1 gal. Graphic Charcoal One Coat Hide Eggshell Enamel Interior Stain-Blocking Paint & Primer is going to look nice on my walls in my living room. I’m glad it’s the paint & primer together so I only have to use one coat. Very nice color eggshell like a light brown. Directions are easy to read and understand how to use it. I can’t wait to see how it’s going to look on my walls.

              Quality product
              I was looking for something to cover the ugly color in my basement while giving the space a more industrial look. The Behr Dynasty stain blocking paint and primer did the easily did the job. I am very happy with the final result of the graphic charcoal color. However, I did need to hit some areas with a second coat just due to how poor of a job had been done in the past and the damage of prior owners. Overall the paint and primer works very well and as advertised.

              Great Paint
              Painted our Hallway with this Behr Dynasty Flannel Gray. The one-coat coverage was super nice to have to. Only had to roll one coat but did have to trim out the edges twice. Our hallway has no natural light so it appears lighter in person than my photo. We had this paint shipped to our home and had zero issues. The paint & primer combo is a must have these days, most every brand offers that. We always opt for the eggshell sheen in our home, helps to reflect some light and keeps it easy to clean. Love how the can has the “easy pour” lid and adaptor.

              Great Paint, unique color.
              I was looking for a quality paint for my my oldest bedroom that was a an older kid color and the BEHR DYNASTY 1 gal. #PPU18-05 French Silver One-Coat Hide Eggshell Enamel. 1 code hiding coverage really does seem to work. With just one coat it completely hide the greenish color under it, the color itself is a silver/purple type of color, its a bit hard to describe it. I will be doing two coats just for added durability. The paint itself has no odor which is great and I did not notice any off smelling fumes either. I did read the paint is the most durable, most stain repellent, most scuff resistant, 1-coat hide paint ever which I hope to find out with use. Painting itself was easy, its on the thicker side so it using a roller go slowly.

              Good coverage
              I got this to paint our spare bedroom and wanted to try a bolder color i liked the idea of the paint being pre mixed. It has a great coverage with a smooth finish and for this application it only took one coat. I love this paint and the egg shell finish. will definitely buy this again. And I comes in many different colors. You cant go wrong with Behr Dynasty paints.

              Blue paint
              This was a good product, I liked first that it didn’t have a strong odor, I did smell it but it wasn’t strong in any way. Applying it was very easy, with one coat it looked really good but with two coats it came out very uniform and still covered a pretty good sized area I would say 8’x35’ with ease. I don’t like dark rooms so I usually only paint one wall in each room with a dark color just to give them some color but still doesn’t feel like a cave.

              Nice Color
              Got this to sample in my laundry area, and it looks great. This paint looks to be very durable and capable of lasting for a very long time. Easy to apply use a brush, roller or pad, you can spry it on too. It has low VOC so you won't need extreme ventilation. Easy to clean up use soap and water. Easy to pour with the spout on the can. One of the best paints that you can get.

              Amazing coverage
              Behr paint is amazing quality paint. The viscosity is easy to work with, it doesn’t drip and gives excellent coverage. This dark grey color (graphic charcoal) is exactly the color I’ve been looking for. I have painted a few other similar color options with a different brand paint, and each color was either too blue-ish or just not quite right. This was literally the exact match for what I wanted - a true dark grey without being too stark. It’s a great accent wall color. We’ve painted this color behind our slat wall, and since I love it so much I’m going to paint our kitchen island with it as well.

              High end
              BEHR DYNASTY 1 gal. #PPU18-10 Natural Gray One-Coat Hide Eggshell Enamel Interior Stain-Blocking Paint & Primer. I did a test on my white garage wall to see how the paint performed. I used a 6” roller with 3/8” nap to apply the paint. The paint is very thick, and I found if I applied too much pressure to the roller it would slide and leave white streaks from the paint below. I thought I did a good job covering the existing paint and white is normally easy to cover. When the paint dried, I found there where large areas of white spots showing through the paint. I went over these areas again to finish the job. The original finish was eggshell with some texture and a semi-gloss finish so this could have added to the lack of first coat coverage. The nap of the roller could have been too fine also. Overall, the paint looks good and went on easy even in 90-degree temperature with 70% humidity. It also dried quickly in these conditions. BEHR DYNASTY is the top tier paint with a price to match.

              This is the Quality we should expect
              Five by seven foot bathroom needed an update bad and the existing paint was more like chalk dust. The French Silver cover in one coat and used less than half a gallon. I painted the edges, corners and small spaces first before rolling most everything else last. I use the traditional “V” to roll paint on which works great with paint this thick. The small nap roller put on paint almost as thick as the corner brush did. Overall the look is beautiful, took a couple of hours solo and dried quickly with the AC on. The can is plastic top and bottom plus it comes with an easy to us pour spout.

              Love the can pour!!
              First let me say that when I was picturing the color gray flannel...I was picturing a little bit of a darker gray and that's what I had hoped for but as you can see in the pictures that I have attached this is a very light gray. Now yes it is light Almost White compared to a charcoal gray which I also have included a picture but it's so much prettier than I would have thought when I first opened the can. This may sound silly but one of the very favorite things I like about this can of paint is the fact that there's a screw top and a hole that the paint pours out of so you don't have to flip up this giant lid and deal with all that mess.... that is an A++ what a great idea! The paint is a 1 coat with primer already in the paint and it made transforming my living room wall effortless. It went on very smoothly and it is a wonderful quality paint. You've got to try this you'll be so glad that you did!

              Nice paint!
              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.

              High quality, good coverage
              Paint goes on very smooth and even, covers great in one coat. Use a high quality brush and roller. The can has a unique screw on lid and a pour spout that attaches to it as well to avoid the usual mess on the rim of the can. The satin finish makes it a nice durable finish, easy to clean and looks nice. I feel that it’s a high quality paint and will use it again on future painting projects.

              High quality paint
              The quality of this paint seems to be extremely high. Only time could really prove this fact but I am pretty sure it will turn out to be true. The paint seems to be really smooth and easy to apply and also seems to coat really well the first try. The paint can itself is excellent also. It comes with a little hole that unlocks and opens and also has a spout that can be connected directly to the same hole. Really helpful to keep down on the mess. The only issue I sort of have was that the paint says black, but it looked like more of a dark grey to me. IDK, maybe my colors are off.

              Worth paint that costs twice as much
              Exceptional results that exceed brands that cost twice as much with BEHR's Dynasty eggshell paint and primer. I got this to rehab our mudroom, which is very small, and currently very RED. I assumed that the wall color would require two coats of paint and primer mixed paint, or one or two coats of quality primer and then one or two coats of paint with primer. That's usually what a color like this red takes to cover. Thanks to BEHR's new Dynasty option, the time needed for this project was cut significantly, at least by half, and perhaps by as much as three quarters. One coat was all I needed to roll to cover the deep red fully. I did the edging around the trim with a brush, and started in a different area so my eyes wouldn't be fooled about coverage by the rolled paint. The brushwork usually takes two or more coats to cover a section like this with other paints. Again, BEHR's Dynasty option took care of things. In one coat! And despite the Dolphin Fin color being a very light gray. The paint is thick enough to be brushed on fairly heavily without running, which makes the coverage much more effective. Rolled on and brushed on smoothly. Cleanup was super easy with no residue like other high-end paints I've used have left in the equipment despite combing out the brushes. This paint is exceptional. As we move to different rooms, we'll be using this to save time and money, and will still end up with results that meet or exceed the very expensive brand. One gallon will cover a fairly large bedroom (think 20' x 20') or multiple smaller rooms. High ability to repel stains and resist scuffs, which is good even if you don't have kids or pets. Tack-free in 4 hours. Very low odor; in fact, I noticed none even when I had the can fully open to stir.

              Good coverage
              I recently got the BEHR DYNASTY One-Coat Hide Eggshell Enamel Interior Stain-Blocking Paint & Primer in the color JOJOBA N390-3. The paint color is a light green. The paint went on well and covered in the first coat, I went over unpainted drywall, if you're going over a dark color you may want a second coat. This paint is stain blocking and scuff and mar resistant. The can has a removable plug in the lid so you can add a spout for easy pouring, however one you use this spout you have to use all the paint because the plug can not be put back in. I would definitely recommend this paint.

              Works as promised!!
              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.

              Great coverage!
              Behr Dynasty paint in French Silver provides great coverage and is scuff resistant. The paint dries quickly which is a great feature for busy households. The stain repelling formula, coupled with the scuff resistance, are nice features to provide longevity of the paint application. The French Silver color provides a nice alternative to basic white, without being an overpowering color choice.

              Expensive but great coverage
              Used this to paint over a painted mural in a kids room. Covered really well using a 3/8 nap roller. Also liked the eggshell finish as its light texture helped hide imperfections in the wall finish. It has been a problem ordering paint online for delivery because all to often the cans arrived all bashed up from the shipping. This uses snap on top and base plates to prevent that damage. This can also has a screw off plug and screw on spout to make pouring into the paint tray easy. It also makes it easier to reseal the can so the expensive paint doesn't dry out. Beware though, clean around the threads for a better seal and so the cap will come off next time.

              Behr paint is the best
              Almost all of my home was painted eggshell when I purchased it. Although I’ve painted a lot of rooms in my home there are still some walls in the original color. It goes well with most anything and lightens and brightens up a room. I’ve gone for darker colors in a lot of rooms in my home but this color is always good especially in smaller rooms or rooms with less light.

              Love this dark color. Plan to use in two bathrooms in my home to update their colors. Paint covers most with one coat. No strong odor from this paint. Easy cleanup. I know this color will totally change the look of my bathrooms and can’t wait to see the new look. Behr paint is a great product. My painter used it to paint the exterior of my home and three years later it still looks great.
