Like many I too have painted many homes without any major problems...until the dreaded River Rock. I initiall used it a powder room. It was a disaster. Then we moved. Now in a new home I hired a well known painter and one wall in the family room was goint to be the Desert Trail River Rock. 8 yes, 8 coats later the streaks were still there. I consulted with the RL people as did my painter. Lets get real, one out of 8 just by chance should come out looking acceptable. NOT A CHANCE. While the RL/Glidden rep was willing to give me all the paint & supplies that I needed for free it was a lost battle. The real kicker was that the RL rep was not able to come to my home to SEE the problem for own edification. My painter ended up using a textured paint by Mclusky's. It was great. I WILL NEVER BUY ANOTHER RALPH LAUREN PAINT AGAIN. They have the best colors and the best brochures but the paint itself is inferrior to most other paints on the market.
