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.
  • After 4 weeks, cured paint film may be cleaned with a mild, non-abrasive liquid detergent.
  • Dry paint film is mildew resistant.
  • Do not use on floors.
DisposalBlank space if empty.
  • For disposal of empty containers, unused paint and soiled rags, contact your household refuse collection service.

BEHR MARQUEE® Interior Eggshell Enamel No. 2450 is rated 4.8 out of 5 by 1463.
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 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.

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.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from So disappointed Last year I bought my first house, it wasnt brand new so I wanted to paint all the rooms. I decided to spend the extra money for top of the line paint so I would not have to paint again anytime soon. Well its been about a year and my bedroom paint is peeling and chipping. So disappointed.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great for DIY Paint Job Bought a gallon of the Behr Marquee Interior Eggshell enamel for a bedroom that I'm redoing after 12 years. The paint went on beautifully with two coats which is what the employee said it would. Great coverage on the first coat but added a 2nd one just to be sure. Easy to clean up as well. I like the new type of round twist off spouts on the gallon cans. It makes it easy to pour the paint. Overall, very happy with this paint and have returned to get more for the baseboards and will be doing other rooms soon!
