I would highly recommend that you look elsewhere for paint besides home depot. While consumer reports has rated paints (based on consumer reviews) you will find that most professional painters LOATHE behr paints. Having tried many a different paint brands over the last couple of years I can say that behr was the WORST paint I encountered. Very thin, very little pigment, and it did not go on smooth at all. I even added some latex additives to make it flow better to no avail.

check out benjamin moore, kelly moore or miller (devine) paints if available in your area.

Out of all of them I would say that the benjamin more went on the easiest and had the best coverage.

If your painting a dark color (like burgundy) your going to need at least 3 coats for even coverage. Have fun!

Sberian,
as with most things, you get what you pay for. Take a couple minutes to cruise a painter or diy forum and you will see many comments along the same lines about behr paint. If anyone is one the fence I would suggest buying a quart of both cheap paint and top quality stuff. Then take your expensive paint brush (the quality one you will clean and store properly and have for life) and cut in some window or baseboard trim. You will then know what I'm talking about when it comes to paint flow and coverage

Sure, you can roll on gobs of any paint and it will work...just like you could put Bose speakers in your custom home theater and they will work
