> Ralph Lauren Paint Help by Handyman on 10/27/2004

First of all, let me say that in painting many,many rooms in the past 35 years, I have never run across a paint product so lousy as this one. This came as a complete shock to me as less than 2 years ago, I used paint from the "Safari" collection with excellent results.

For starters, it has absolutely no coverage (for example, I used the Keystone color to paint a room that was formerly white). The walls were awful! Streaks, blots and lots and lots of the white still showing thru even after 2 coats. All in all, it took 3 gallons of paint to cover one average sized room.

If you are dead set on using this textured paint(and the clowns at both Home Depot and Ralph Lauren should also tell customers this) the room first needs to be painted with a base coat of a similar color with a cheaper paint. At least then, the streaks would not be as noticeable. In future, I will not use this product again.
