"I almost didn't buy this paint because of some of the poor reviews, but I'm really glad I did. Renovating my 4th house, and planning to paint brand new custom build kitchen cabinets. I have always painted Behr paints, and have painted kitchen cabinets with it before and wasn't crazy about the results. The paint just didn't hold up well. I researched the best paint out there for kitchen cabinets, but it can't be custom tinted, so it wouldn't work for me. I went to the HD and asked the sales associate at the paint counter what to use. She said they don't carry a paint that is appropriate for cabinets that can be custom tinted. She sent me to SW. I found this paint easy to work with. It paints about the same as any other paint I have used. I had none of the problems noted in the poor reviews. The difference is in the results. With a Behr semi-gloss I can get a sprayed look if I use a 6 inch foam roller. With this paint I can get a sprayed look using a brush. Many of the poor reviews I would chalk up to inappropriate expectations for the paint. This is a SELF LEVELING paint, it won't fill in imperfections in the wood you're painting it onto. It also isn't a high hide paint. In fact...if you're painting it over primer, which has a flat sheen you will probably see imperfections you didn't see before painting because the flat sheen hides more imperfections. If you're painting it over trim that has already been painted and has brush marks in it...you will still see the brush marks from the previous paint job. No paint will cover well in a single coat. Two coats is the minimum...three is best. Don't expect more from the paint than you should. This paint will do exactly what it is advertised to do, but don't expect to go out and buy a $65 gallon of paint and be instantly transformed into a master painter. If your paint jobs don't usually look very good, then the job still won't look good with this paint, you just won't see any brush marks in it. This paint is well worth the money."
