Best Uses
I guess you get what you pay for, I tried to save a couple of bucks and as usual it backfired. The paint was stringy and as I painted bubbles started to form on my walls, I expected them to go away as the paint dried but it did not. I stopped painting sealed up the cans and returned them to Lowe's where I got my money back.
How long have you owned it:
A month or less
Bottom Line
No, I would not recommend this to a friend.

Best Uses
Anywhere inside
I repainted my sons room which was painted a medium/dark blue. I chose Olympic color Heavy Cream, which is a light beige. I planned on 2 coats to cover over the blue, I was amazed that it covered in one coat! The Eggshell Enamel has also proven to be durable, I've washed it several times (son drew on wall)and no paint came off on the rag.
How long have you owned it:
Three-to-six months
Bottom Line
Yes, I would recommend this to a friend.
