Sherwin Williams Paint Recommendations


I generally stay out of the Behr fray. But hey, I've used more gallons of it than I can count. I've never had a problem with it, at all. In fact, I've gotten some beautiful finishes with it and they've held up over time. I've never had any coverage problems I hear so many speak of. And, I've never had a sagging problem I hear so many complain about. It's even proven to me that it holds its color better than some others. The first time I used it I sensed it had a different body than others and I adjusted my application, that's what pros do. I used it in the kitchen of an OCD wall cleaner and it held up great to her scrubbing for at least the three or four years that I was around to monitor it. I had lots of problems with MAB Luster Lite flat enamel, and that's what pushed me to try Behr flat enamel, and it was great. I used Behr semi trim on my mom's basement trim, it looks great. I had another painter over there last week and he commented about how nice the trim looked, a "nice looking finish" he said. I'm a fair guy, and I can't trash something that hasn't given me problems just because it has for others. But, I'm happy with you guys keeping demand for Behr down, it keeps the price lower.

Well, I managed to finally get the primer on the walls. The Sherwin Williams Multipurpose primer and sealer worked fantastically! Smooth application, and once I got the cobwebs out of my painting arms and "learned" the paint it got much easier.

Also, it has VERY low odor, which is good bc I despise paint fumes, lol. I actually added some vanilla extract to it but couldnt really smell it too much, so not sure how much of a part of the low odor that played.

I am not used to painting on new bare drywall though and was shocked at how much paint it was soaking up. However, this primer still came out really even despite by glorious newbieness

It also seems to dry quite rapidly.

I will report back on the Cashmere tomorrow as I will be doing at least coat 1. I am hoping to get both on though if it dries rnough in time.

Just wanted to follow up and give a little bit more feedback on the actual Cashmere paint. Once again, SW has a superior product. Sure it is quite expensive comparatively, but for a perfectionist like me I am much more worried about end result than most and understand that sometimes I have to pay a little extra for it.

I put on two coats (24 hours apart) and this stuff is beautiful. The sheen is exactly what i was looking for - it is billed as matte and I love it because it has the look of flat, yet feels close to eggshell, without any light reflection at all. I am super impressed with this stuff and will probably not use anything else ever if I can help it.

It covers very well and does not have much of a strong odor at all either. My only problem was that I was essentially painting with very low light and had my son following me with a trouble light as I was painting. The first coat of cashmere over the primer was a bit difficult because the cashmere went on almost exactly the same color as the dried primer (but then dried darker of course). The final coat of paint was much easier as it was much lighter going on than the last coat was dried.

Thanks again!

Mike
