Why spend all the time with proper prep. and then use crap paint??

Prep and painting is so labor intensive that once I'm ready for the material I want quality product.

Well whats done is done. The Kilz is on there.

I have to check the date of the reciept, but I might still be able to return the Behr since its not tinted and not opened.

So what brand would you recommend if I'm already at Home Depot returning the other paint?

Get your money from Home Crapo and shop at a real paint store.

SW, Benjamin Moore, etc.

I just found on their site that I have 90 days to return it.

And there is a BM store near my house.

edit: we don't have a lowes, but I would welcome it just to have competition from HD.

But if you shop at local stores you can often get better deals than the big box stores.
