A pleasant experience

The entire experience was so easy. The information about this product made me feel more comfortable in ordering paint online as opposed to going to the store instead. The product was delivered quickly and packed well

Looks Great!

This paint has almost no smell and is healthier with very low voc's. It goes on nicely and looks great.

So easy!

I painted Clare's Classic color (light greige) over a dark blue in my bathroom, so I chose to use this primer first. It was easy to work with, not drippy, and it did exactly what primer is supposed to do. I'm a happy customer :) (My picture shows one coat, but I did a second coat over some spots where the blue paint was particularly rough and needed a bit more primer.)
