This is not a sponsored post, I just wanted to share my experience with Behr Marquee since a few of you have asked about it and some of you may be wondering about it. I was intrigued by it's claims of no priming and one coat coverage. That sounds like a dream come true to me! So I picked up a quart and crossed my fingers. The color I chose is called magnet.
As you can tell from the before picture it was not in the best shape and the finish was a little slick.
I wiped everything down and got it really clean and then applied my first coat. I could tell immediately that I was going to need more than one coat, but overall the coverage was pretty good especially considering that I didn't prime it. The bottom left corner was still a little wet so it looks a little blotchy.
and a little close up...
After I applied the second coat it was perfect. Here you can see the finished product.
I used the same paint on the bathroom cabinets as well.
All in all I was pretty pleased with it. The coverage wasn't one coat, but still pretty good. It is a little pricey for a quart (around $20), but I was able to paint the whole bed (headboard, footboard, and rails) and the bathroom cabinets and there's still paint leftover. So when you think about it that way it was a pretty good investment. And since we are on the subject of painting, we used Valspar Ultra Paint and Primer in One for the walls (color matched to Sherwin Williams Knitting Needles) and it worked really well. I was pleasantly surprised at how well it covered. We did one coat on the trim and pretty much one coat with the roller. We did touch up a few areas, but it was pretty much just one coat coverage.
Do you have a go to paint?
