Very good for the use on recycling chairs and tables. Worked beautifully on my repurposed wood coffee table. Highly recommend and would buy the paint again. This paint will take a bit longer than some other brands to dry. However, the end result is definitely worth the wait. Once again, I would highly recommend this product for any project.

Rated 2 out of 5Â by Sheri Not drying like it says
The Manufacturer states that it takes 4-5 hour dry time and 24 hour recoat time. This just is not true. I have waited 24 hours and the paint on my kitchen cabinets is still wet and sticky. I won't put another coat on it until it dries. I have had a room fan going on low for circulation and the heat set at 72. The paint was very sticky going on too. Which is not uncommon for oil paint but this one was a little extra sticky. The first coat looks nice but I'm worried it may take a few days before I can apply the second coat. I have painted with oil paints from other manufacturers and it never took this long. So if you want fast results this is NOT the paint for you

Picked a colour called Vixen that gives personality, and brightens our bedroom! Loved testing it out online in a photo of our room before committing.
