"I used this paint in a few rooms in our first house, I was inexperienced with painting at the time and felt that the paint went up easily and the finish looked really good when I was done. We were going over freshly primered drywall in all but one room, and I prefer to use 2 coats to ensure that the finished paint job looks nice and even. We lived with some of those colors for almost a decade, and they held up well and cleaned well. They looked nicer at close to 10 years than some of the rooms that were painted only 2-3 years ago with paint from one of the big box stores. Now we're in a new (to us) house and hubby is doing all of the painting this time since we're expecting. I came back to Cashmere paint since he has only ever painted a single room. This time we are going over the last homeowner's color choices, and the paint still goes on well and the finished walls look very nice, even if the application wasn't perfectly even, or the cut-ins got a little dry before the rest of the paint went on. We have gone over some medium-toned colors without having to prime first. I do think that this paint has a stronger and more offensive odor than some of the newer low/zero VOC paints, but my nose is especially sensitive right now. We will sleep in the guest room for a couple of nights to let our master bedroom air out, and will probably do the same when we paint our child's room, but for the rest of the house it is not as much of an issue."
