He recommended Behr's Premium Plus paint which is a primer and paint in one. Of course, with the name premium, you know it's going to cost more - about $8-10 a gallon more.
Now, I'm not one to always jump at the recommendation of a sales person, but this guy looked like he had painted a few walls in his day, so I thought, why not! If it can save me putting on three coats of paint to cover that red, then I'm all for that!
Well, take a look at this - this is just ONE COAT! We're talking FABULOUS PAINT HERE PEOPLE! I could probably get away with only one coat, but I'll put on two just because I have enough paint, and it will look better.
Mr. Salesman said, it will go on like honey, and he wasn't kidding! I'll probably wish that I had bought the same type for the color above the chair rail!
And yes, Mr. Newman, my interior decorator, was right along side me every step of the way. At one point, he decided to grab the brush from my hand, and he got paint on his paw. Never a dull moment with him around!
