I bought paint at Lowes when I could get a friend to drive me there, prepped the area I want to paint, set aside time on a day off to do the painting and then ran headlong into a brick wall with the cheap quality of the paint itself. Instead of the deep red paint nicely covering the white (painted) shelves, I got what looked more like wood stain- uneven and mostly transparent coverage.
Letting an area dry, I then tried a 2nd coat on it and it was obvious that I'd need a 3rd and perhaps even a 4th coat to achieve an even finish. This is totally unacceptable from a $44 a gallon can of paint!
I don't have the time or the money to apply that many coats of paint and resent the inferior product they sold me and the time Lowe's has wasted for me. So I'm sitting here writing complaints instead of getting the painting done as I had planned until I can beg a ride to Benjamin Moore.
Why does Lowes have so little respect for its customers?
