Rated 5 out of 5 by MistyM30 great product
I almost didn't buy this product due to the poor reviews I have seen. However I love it if you use it with the right roller it works great. The only bad thing i could say is its messy when using a roller it flies everywhere but then again texturing a room is a messy thing no matter how you do it so be sure and cover everything in sight. I used the sand texture paint and did a knock down finish looks great cant even tell a first timer did it make sure to use a texture roller with this or the results probably won't be good.

Rated 5 out of 5 by HowdysMom Smooth texture for a "sharp" look!
I wanted to do something different and challenging in my small bathroom and decided that texture was IT! I applied Behr smooth texture paint per directions (the colored pamphlet is fantastic) and went to town with my wide putty knife. I came out looking like a pro...what a result. Get ready for a bit of a mess and have everything draped and masked, but it's worth all of the prep.

Rated 5 out of 5 by HappyGoLucky Wonderful choice and purchase!
With having two children and both being boys, you can imagine the damage they can do to drywall!!! We are currently renovating a whole house and after wanting to do something different with the walls, we found the Behr texture paint. We figured after stirring it that there was no way we could apply it with a roller, so instead, we ended up using a scraper to apply it to the walls!! So far we're on the 3rd bucket and have the living room and half the dining room done. But the in perfections on the walls, this stuff is amazing! We LOVE IT!!! I completely recommend it to anyone! It's only messy if you have no clue what you're doing. Make sure you use a primer before hand though; it definitely helps make the product stick to the walls! But all in all, it is a great product!

Rated 5 out of 5 by kenniker Use with a trowel or brush for great results
We have used this product throughout our house. We have a house that is around 115 years old without a straight or even wall.
Initially, we tried to use the loop roller but it didn't work well as other reviewers mentioned. But when we applied with a trowel, it gave a sort of 'stucco' look that looks great in the house. Hid all the imperfections. It takes some time to put on this way, but the results are well worth it.
