Thats the stuff. Benjamin Moores waterborne ceiling paint is the easiest to work with, and its very forgiving if you are not a professional painter. Cant tell you how many times I've seen home owners or novice painters use other ceiling paints that left lap marks everywhere. Its a bit more expensive than other ceiling paints, but its going to make your job so much easier and look so much better. Your local Benjamin Moore dealer should have it stocked in white and light bases. If you are planning on a really dark color, you should call ahead.

That would be my second pick, especially if $ was an issue

I've used ICI /Dulux paints for years , in my area they have now been bought out by Glidden Professional. I just did my first job with the Glidden Professional line and it was excellent. Every bit as good a Ben Moore or Sherwin Williams and not quite as expensive.

Sherwin Williams is a fine product. Ben Moore is as well, just more expensive and I don't think worth it. However, depending on the condition of the ceiling, one coat may not cover regardless of which paint you use. If there are water stains, Sherwin Williams White pigmented shellac is the only product I have used that covers the stains permanently. Additionally, do not use a cheap roller sleeve. They will leave fuzz on the surface. If you have a textured ceiling you will need the proper nap on the roller sleeve. Talk to your local Sherwin Williams or Ben Moore store for the proper advice. The big box stores do not always have the best advice. Good luck.
