I have, on occasion used an exterior Semi-Gloss on interior trim. I just like that it covered in one coat. It was an apartment repaint where perfection wasn't required.

Was that the one for the ad for $400 and they wanted "million dollar quality".

I work in a store that sells Ben Moore, and I had a customer bring in another brand and ask me to fix the color for her. The paint was an exterior semi-gloss, but she told me it was for her kitchen cabinets. When I asked if she had specified that she wanted exterior paint, she said that her painter had gotten it, that she hadn't even noticed it was for exterior use. I didn't want to bash her painter, but did suggest that she call the manufacturer to check that this product was suitable for the job.

PaintLady,

Not trying to be rude or dismissive, but as you've been here since october I am surprised you missed this thread just in december

http://www.painttalk.com/f2/can-exterior-paint-used-paint-interior-room-26242/

I know the vBulletin search engine sucks, but it didn't take me but thirty seconds to find the subject matter. To your advantage, finding a recent thread on a subject gives much better answers than starting one new. AND you can always bump the recent one it if you have any specific questions, which you haven't relayed yet.

:thumbsup:

We had an interior application that seemed more like an exterior: wide temperature swings, occasional high humidity, etc. I called the PPG tech service line and they assured me that it was a totally appropriate use for an exterior acrylic latex.

Thanks for all your replies. It helps to have reinforcement from professionals who care when I'm arguing a point to a customer who is getting taken by a painter who doesn't care. In this case, my customer had a hard time believing that her painter who has been painting for 20+ years would show up to her job with the wrong product in hand.
