I have some paint that is two years old. Will it be ok to use it? Is it still good?

Open the can and smell it. If it has a bad odor (worse than a normal paint odor), throw it out.
Otherwise, I would try a sample on a piece of scrap wood or cardboard and see what happens.
If you kept your paint in a cool place the answer is yes, you may have to take a while mixing it up but I am using 3 year old paint kept in my basement and after a lot of mixing it is just fine. I have painted 3 door's with it .Hope it goes well for you! dar
You will probably be okay with it. If you end up not liking it, you can just paint over that, but at least you will not be guilty of throwing out good paint.
Yes of course you can use with confidence because I have some paints five years old
And I think there is no problem in the result on paintings but I always use best colors made in USA, UK or Germany not china made
