No, I do not recommend this product.
I used this to paint walls of previously painted drywall, which were a flat off-white. Thought that I could easily get by with one coat of this product. Bought two 5-gallon pails in cottage white. Chose the flat finish to minimize appearance of imperfections on the walls. Disappointed for two reasons. First, this paint produces an eggshell finish, NOT the flat / matte claimed. It definitely has a sheen to it. Second, there were large variations in the sheen level from place to place after the first coat. Very noticeable if you looked along a hallway or stairway -- looked really bad. So I had to put a second coat on, which resulted in a much more uniform sheen, but definitely eggshell, not the flat / matte I wanted. I've done a lot of painting, and will do a lot more, but will not use this again.

No, I do not recommend this product.
Just sprayed 6 gallons of this in the first floor of my 3-stall garage interior. Bought it for the alleged matte flat finish because I wanted a dead-flat finish to minimize the appearance of any imperfections on the walls and ceilings. I was very unhappy to see that this paint leaves a low-sheen finish, NOT a matte flat finish. It's very difficult to get a uniform looking finish, particularly if you are looking down the wall in light from a ceiling fixture or window. Now wish that I had bought something else, and I definitely will when I paint the stairway and second floor. Is it too much too ask for a flat finish from a paint advertised as matte flat???

I have used a LOT of paints over the years....just did a renovation/entire house interior with the flat, and satin for trim, over some old wild colors. Did an excellent job of covering and only the darkest/boldest old wild colors required a second quick coat (that is why I chose this particular paint). The satin did a great job of turning old tan doors to bright white too. Highly recommend it!

Professional painter for years. I use to like Benjamin Moor, but they got too expensive. This Behr's paint cover very well in one coat over light color since most of my clients pick earth tone or nutural colors. Two coats look even better. Save money on priming. The paint is slight thick, but one use good roller or paint brush like Purdy. Low order, but gone in 2 days. All my clients in PA and NJ love it.
