The house I recently purchased has paneling in every room. Being on a tight budget I chose to paint over it. I started with a small bathroom with medium colored paneling. I bought one gallon and was shocked to find I only needed one coat. Extremely impressed and am going back for more to do a living room with dark paneling. Really, there were no cons for me only pros with this paint. Yes, I'm a single woman and try to do things myself. :)

I was trying to save some $ and have had good luck with ACE paints before. This C&K paint will not cure or harden like other paints I've used. After 2 months, I still can not sand down rough spots to repaint without big sheets of paint peeling off. I am no amature at this and did my proper prep work, which is always the excuse given when paint doesn't stick. Do yourself a fovor and buy a better quality, name brand paint and save the aggrevation.

      Comments about CLARK + KENSINGTON Clark+Kensington Paint and Primer in One Premium Interior Semi-Gloss Enamel - Gallon:

      I did alot of research on paints prior to buying this. I was repainting several walls that had been covered in a coat of primer tinted red, and 3 coats of a deep merlot. I was expecting that it would take numerous coats to cover that base. I covered it in frost white with only two coats! I was so pleased on how easy this paint went on, how much it covered and how well it looked. Did not experience any of the problems that some of the reviews mentioned. I got lucky and picked it up when they were having a sale on paint so I save even more. I am so happy and will use this paint again in the future.

          This review is for Egg shell interior paint

          After reading reviews i thought i will try this paint. This paint is only little cheaper than Valspor but is a horrible one. I will never buy this paint again in my life.

          First of all it does not stick well. You have to apply two coats even though you prime the wall. It says paint for primer in one, but i highly doubt it is.

          In the past i have used Bher and Valspor signature. I never felt so irritated to paint. After around 6 hours i only painted very little area because you have to do it slowley and need to run the roller multiple times to get a good coverage.

          This paint is only cheaper by 5 dollars compared to valspor. I cursed myself many times in those 6 hours for trying this horrible paint. Please spend some more money and save time. If you pick this paint, you will never paint start painting project again in your life.

          I am really a hardworking guy. I dont mind spending long hours to get a job done well. But this is the first home project i felt like why did i even start with such stupid quality paint.

                Possibly the worst paint I've ever used. Terrible coverage - just would NOT cover, went on with a strange consistency. This was with several different colors, a satin, semi-gloss - they were all TERRIBLE. I only bought this because my local Ace stopped carrying Royal in satin, and the salesman recommended this. Would never use this paint again. I feel like I just threw my money away on this and ruined my painting projects. The semi-gloss especially - was tacky even days after being painted, peeled easily, just terrible.

                  I used the paint for a plywood cabinet that I built. The coverage over the plywood was excellent. The color was uniform and there was no need for a second coat. The primer in the paint eliminated a step for me and saved time. Bare plywood ordinarily requires a primer coat. I applied the paint over the bare wood with excellent coverage and color.

                    I started painting my dark wood trim white with Behr Premium Plus Ultra in Ultra Pure White, but after reading the Consumer Reports Reviews on paint, I decided to try this paint, which was rated best, even better than Behr. What a difference! I love the smoothness of this paint. It was much less sticky and messy than Behr, as well, which was very gloppy. I was also really impressed with the coverage. It covered perfectly in 2 coats, compared to 4-5 with Behr. I couldn't be happier!

                          I tried this paint based on Consumer Reports writeup. I like the low VOC. Depending on underlying color and type of sheen it may still need a top coat after proper curing (that is key). If you start a topcoat too soon you will still strip away the first and smear it around. If you take it slow the first coat does a great job covering other colors. I did have one small issue with keeping the paint color and sheen blended. But I was scraping the bottom of the can for final drips of paint. A fresh shaken can covers well and did the job. I am now starting my third room with different colors. I found clean up very easy. Compare this to the oil paint I had to use on the raw plaster ceiling....night and day.

                            Bought this Paint after using their flat version which I liked very much. Total waste of money, it's problem is that it dries WAY too fast I had to use the maximum amount of Floetrol just to make it usable. I never bought into the paint and primer gimmick so I primed before I painted so that was not the issue. I rolled a flat door so that was supper fast and there it was fine and looks nice but there are much better choices. Perhaps try XIM with it for even with the floetrol it still dried to fast

                                  No topcoat would stick to my lacquer oak 20 year old cabinets. Used zinser 123 to prime, didn't work even after scuff sand, then tried XIM UMA primer $57 gallon after cleaning with 25% ammonia and scuff sanding with maroon scotchbrite. Then put the clark and kensington paint/primer on it with 7% floetrol to hide brushmarks. Result is beautiful.can see some grain in the wood and like it alot. My professional painter was so proud of me when he saw it and will try this product. It dries fast so work fast, scrubs better than proclassic! Coverage: 2 coats if much different colour than what is under it. Wife and I are thrilled.

                                          It was so thick we had to add an additive that thins down the paint to make it easier to apply. Without a doubt the most difficult to clean from brushes. Others have commented about streaking but we were painting interior doors with a grainy surface and it would be hard to see brush streaks. Would not use this paint again.

                                              I painted a living room, dining room and bedroom with Clark + Kensington and the experience couldn't have been easier. Great coverage. Smooth and not messy. This is a perfect paint.

                                              I'm VERY disappointed in the price for the quality received. I EXPECTED much more that I received. For a paint & primer in one, it took THREE COATS to cover a light blue with the yellow blast I chose. This was by far the WORST PAINT I have ever used.

                                                  Trying to paint with this is like trying to paint with Elmers' glue. I bought three cans and all three were terrible. Sticky, tacky, glue-like. Horrible paint that cost me a lot and ruined my window sills, closets, baseboards, basically everything I painted is now ruin because of this awful paint. It also chips like crazy. Just awful

                                                      I loved the color which is why I tried this paint + primer. The less expensive ACE brand paint is wayyyy better. This paint doesn't cover well and uses a lot of paint to do just one coat. I need to purchase another gallon to do the second coat. Paint doesn't go very far. The paint also leaves roller marks and brush stroke marks after the paint drys. Do NOT buy this product. If you are like me, you have already bought it and then looked at the reviews.... return it before you paint. I read the reviews on here and I thought it would be okay but buyer beware.. Nice choice of paint colors, but the paint isn't worth it.

                                                                I used this paint for two dressers and a bookshelf. It took almost a week to not feel "tacky" even in an airconditioned space. It has now been 9 days and anytime it is touched fingerprints remain, not good for furniture. I was told this paint was a premium finish and would leave a "hard shell" once dry. I will not buy it again. Very disappointed in the price for the quality received.

It doesn't cover well and when I tried to go back to fix the spots that were missed, the gloss looks different in those places. It's costly and very thick and doesn't cover very large of a space.

And... if that isn't enough, it peels too easily. You can peel back an entire wall if you are not careful. Will never cover in one coat, no matter what you are covering. I switched to the less expensive but far superior Ace Royal brand with excellent results.

This C&K paint will not cure or harden like other paints I've used. After 2 months, I still can not sand down rough spots to repaint without big sheets of paint peeling off. I am no amature at this and did my proper prep work, which is always the excuse given when paint doesn't stick. Do yourself a fovor and buy a better quality, name brand paint and save the aggrevation.

                                                                                              I first must say I have 15 years of painting experience and found the semi gloss not up to par for a paint and primer all in one. Only treat it as a normal paint for prepared surfaces. My project was to paint previosly stained baseboards. I followed Manu reccommendations and sanded the wood and allowed an hour between coats. It took 3 coats of paint plus touch up to cover the base boards. For the price there are better quality paints out there. The paint plus primers seems to be a marketing gimmick.

It definantly needed 2 coats. For the price, I would have thought that it would cover much better. Even the cutting in took 2 coats which did not save me any time at all.

                                                                                                On a positive note, the color was consistant on the 3 gallons I used.
