Usage SummaryBlank space if empty.
Preparation & PrimeBlank space if empty.

All Surfaces:

  • Properly prepare and clean all surfaces.
  • Remove loose paint, wash off dirt and grease with detergent, rinse and allow to dry. Remove mildew stains with a mildew stain remover.
  • Scuff sand glossy surfaces and repair imperfections.
  • Remove all dust with a damp cloth, allow to dry.
  • Allow new stucco, plaster and masonry to cure for 30 days before painting.
  • Use BEHR MARQUEE paint as a primer for uncoated, porous or repaired interior surfaces, including woods that contain tannins (two primer coats required for redwood and cedar).

Stained Surfaces:

  • Lock in stains with BEHR MARQUEE as a spot primer.
  • For heavy stains, test for stain bleed-through by applying BEHR MARQUEE to a small section.
  • If the stain bleeds through, spot prime with another coat to the stained area and test again before topcoating.
  • If bleeding continues, a longer dry time is needed before topcoating.
ApplicationBlank space if empty.
  • Apply when air and surface temperatures are between 50-90°F (10-32°C).
  • Stir paint occasionally. Intermix containers of same product to ensure color and sheen uniformity.
  • Use a high quality 3/8-1/2" nap roller cover, nylon/polyester brush or an airless sprayer (.015 - .019" spray tip, 60 mesh filter).
  • Do not thin if using a roller or brush; however, if using a sprayer and thinning is required, thin with water at a rate of no more than 1/2 pint per gallon.
  • Fully saturate roller for best coverage.
  • Untinted ULTRA PURE WHITE® and colors outside of the MARQUEE Interior One-Coat Color Collection may require more than one coat to achieve complete hide and a uniform finish.
  • Darker colors may require additional dry time between coats. Cooler temperatures or higher humidity may prolong drying time.

  • Dry paint film is mildew resistant.
  • Do not use on floors.

BEHR MARQUEE® Interior Eggshell Enamel is rated 4.8 out of 5 by 1485.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Designer choice As a designer I love the coverage of Behr paint. Also in different lighting it takes on subtle changes. For instance at night, the guess become softer and muted, welcoming and warm. I've changed my lighting more than the paint so I know it's because of the product. I always recommend Behr paint.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Smoothest paint! Touch-ups blend perfectly! Purchased 5 gallons of Marquee to paint the interior of my home. The paint went much further than I really expected it to and it had amazing coverage. I've used a lot of different paints and this one is by far my favorite.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from LIke Paint and Filler in one! We remodel a lot of old houses. And with old comes cracks, checks and blemishes. I am the projects painter and I love Marquee! It is a great product for us. It is so luxurious it fills minor defects and brings fresh new color in one application! I cut time, save money and get a great finish with Marquee.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Color selection I searched everywhere for a color that would work in my living room and finally found the perfect choice in a Behr marqee color. I like the sheen and the application. Only drawback is it is a bit spendy.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from It’s ok - very watery as compared to some others Behr has fantastic selections of color that just seem work (when Home Depot mixes properly ... dip your paint sample chip to verify). We bought this in “platinum” ... more runny than REDACTED, which I have used often as well as REDACTED and REDACTED. Also - eggshell is more of a satin compared with some other competing brands / lines. Still, we more often seem to find our color with Behr.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome coverage I bought this paint for my kitchen. I had painted it a burgundy color years ago when dark colors were popular. I hated the color but put off repainting because I do the painting myself. After reading reviews and speaking to the gentleman in home depots paint dept. I purchased the Behr Marquee eggshell finish in the color Baja (which is a cream/beige color. I was very skeptical about this light color covering in one coat over such a dark color but boy was I wrong. There was not a trace of the burgundy coming through. Came out absolutely beautiful. This paint is amazing.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great for homes with children! I bought this paint for my daughter's home. She has 4 kids and she needed a paint that would hold up to all those dirty little hands. I must say it was fantastic! Sure enough the kids got the walls dirty and we were able to clean the walls up easily. The paint still looked great!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Needs more than one coat I have bought this paint a few times and have found that I always need more than one coat of paint. The walls are prepped and primed correctly, but one coat never does it. I give it 4 stars based on the beautiful color options and the very low odor the paint produces. I will continue to by this brand, just keeping in mind that every color will need multiple coats.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Easy to apply with excellent coverage Have used this product while updating my walls in the past 6 months. Is easy to apply and is durable and washes easily while able to maintain its color with 5 grandchildren and 2 dogs. Behr has many beautiful colors to choose from and the finish options are all wonderful depending on the job.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Rich color, Love our rooms now We purchased our home a year ago and painting every room is on our to do list. The previous owners had some very outdated colors. Will one coat of this do fine? Yes. However I honestly would recommend going over with a second coat regardless. Depending on the paint you are going over and if its an old house, lots of stains etc. A second coat is best. We recently did the nursery because we are expecting our first child and the room looks amazing. We went with Dolphin Fin for the walls and love it! We will be using BEHR for the rest of the house. Not to mention the customer service is incredible. I can't believe we get an actual representative to help us with any questions and give advice. It's like having a free personal consultant.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best coverage around We had 8 color samples on the wall and decided to go with the Behr Marquee paint because of the one coat coverage. Boy were we satisfied. It covered the existing paint as well as the color samples we had painted. We won't buy another paint ever.
Date published: 2021-01-18
Rated 5 out of 5 by from The only paint we will use! We have painted several rooms with Behr Marquee. I won't even look at other brands or options. The one coat guarantee is great. We have painted two bedrooms and a sunroom so far, and soon we will be doing our living room and dining room! Our color choices so far have been Courteous, Fresh Tone, and Summer Dragonfly.
