BEHR PREMIUM ® Oil-Base Satin Enamel is rated 3.7 out of 5 by 95.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Dog Tough! We have a dedicated room our dogs go into when we are not home. We have 4 German Shorthair Pointers and they play hard, and they often jump on the walls to look out the windows. This scuffs the walls and leaves marks. I'm 1 full year into using this paint and the walls still look freshly painted! I can not say enough positive things. * Applies Easy * Goes on Smooth * Full coverage on first coat I was impressed, I also used it on a antique hutch I have repurposed to be used in our kitchen. The paint is holding up very well and adhered beautifully.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Went on easy and stayed mixed I bought this to refresh some woodwork around windows, doors, and baseboards. Went on smooth, easy to clean and looked good with just one coat.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love this oil-based paint My deck has been painted (water based paint), stained, sanded, new boards added, and it always looked sad and droll. My painter suggested I use an oil-based paint which is not very popular, but I did so. My deck gleams with beauty and I admire it every day when I come and go. The paint lasts, looks great, and was very easy to apply. I am going to use my rebate check to buy more of this paint for my garden shed. Very happy customer.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome Paint! I bought this for project at work. I needed to paint wooden letters and make them stick out from a large exhibit. I needed them to be glossy and be seen from a long distance. So purchased the semi-gloss black, gave the letters the proper drying time, and they came out perfect. I will definitely be using this paint for future projects.
