Recently, I’ve been painting my old bedoom at my parent’s house. As the ceiling was new sheetrock, I decided to try that new Behr (read Home Depot) paint and primer in one. I found it worked really really well on the raw sheetrock, and the few spots I spot primed on the walls, it covered the old paint extremely well. The raw wood trim however was not so good (needed a 2nd coat)
Interestingly, I’ve always been a Benjamin Moore user – I went to paint the walls with the standard Regal Wall Satin – the color choice was “Opal” (aka OC73), simply because I had 2 gallons of it sitting here at the house. It didn’t cover worth a darn – 2 coats were manditory, where the spots with the ONE coat of white Behr paint just covered.
