It's funny how such a number of posts like fozzies seems to appear on this board; and it's too bad they don't get to read these posts first before they shop at HD or somewhere like that...but there are scores of others who are quite happy with their own results and don't give a hoot.

Times they are a-changing'

I have never used a primer that beats their Alkyd primer! ever!

It's a smaller paint manufacturer from Toronto...but everything they make blows me away.

holy cow.... no way! I'm registering pronto.

Thanks fozzie for the FYI. I've learned to never trust consumer reports for anything but cars, and to go to SW or BM for the paint. I only go to the big box for kilz and painting supplies (tape, rollers, tarps). that being said, they have so many lines, I was worried that only their primo stuff was good. It's good to find out that some of their mid-range paint is also great.

thanks everyone! I'm really hoping I can just do a primer, 2 coats, and no more... Maybe then my husband and I can pump this apartment out in 3 days... (a girl can dream, right?)
