Comment:
I've used the cheaper Behr product in the past for a ceiling in a powder room, but bought the more expensive one this time because it has a better finish. We had some post-electrical work spackle repairs and other water spots on our ceiling, and it was time to paint anyway. Even though we had to use two coats, it was done by choice because ceilings generally need two coats, especially since the previous color was off-white. I've read these other comments where people complained that they had to use two coats, and I don't get it. I've always used two coats when painting just to get that smooth finish with absolutely no bleed-through. I've used Behr in the past for both walls and ceilings, and I'd use it again. As much as I dislike painting, Behr makes it less painful with their great results.
