Do not buy this paint. It's watery, doesn't go on well, and the result is a terrible stippled appearance. I'm not sure if Lucite has higher end products, but definitely their basic latex paint is to be avoided at all costs.

We bought this paint to put a fresh coat up in a few of our closets. Deciding it wasn't necessary to buy premium paint, we went to Menards and picked up this Lucite paint. When poured into the paint tray, it appeared to be the consistency of liquid paper.

No amount of mixing could get us a smooth product. After mere minutes it started to get a film on top, and each use of the roller just left flakes of paint spattered across the wall. We ended up with a spotty appearance that made the walls and ceiling appear rough and flawed.

The few points I've given this paint is for the fact that it somewhat covered what was underneath, and it stayed on the wall once it was up. It took a lot of effort to get this paint to do that much. The horrible finish is not a big deal in the closet, but it would absolutely be a disaster to have in a main room.

If you're looking for value, I highly recommend using Dutch Boy or Ace Hardware paint instead.
