BEHR MARQUEE ® Ceiling Paint is rated 4.6 out of 5 by 114.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Covered terribly bright purple! We bought the product in a light blueish green and white for trim color, to cover up a half painted, super bright purple bathroom. Indeed, one coat coverage. I couldn't believe my eyes! Prep took more time than the painting did and I was ecstatic. Changed my life. Walking into a beautiful, bright bathroom can start your day pretty well! Only took an evening for the whole process.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great bathroom paint I bought this at home Depot and used it in my bathroom. Holds up great almost a year no issues. Only one coat needed. The price is worth it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent Product!! We have purchased Behr Marquee in the past at Home Depot. This time my wife and I where doing some remodeling in the kitchen, major remodeling in the laundry room, office and a new large home addition. And as the last time we purchased it it worked flawlessly. It's coverage is fantastic. In the kitchen it covered some candle burning residue on our kitchen ceiling. I love painting with the Behr Marquee. It is easy to use and clean up. The durability is also something I should mention. It is a complete package. We will use no other. We would definetly recommend Behr Marquee paint!!
