Don't like Paint Color :(

I painted one of my living room walls a color I thought I would like but now that it is up there I am not liking it at all, looks to seagreenish. so now I am wanting to go with a darker color like earth tone green, is it ok to paint over this awful color with the new color or should I prime it first?

You should not need to re-prime for what amounts to a fairly slight color change. If you were going from white, to say, hunter green, then a grey-tinted primer might help, but I do not think it is necessary to go from one green to another.

If it's new, I'd just go right over it
If it's older, and has a sheen, you might want to do a quick, light, sanding first
But there should be no need for primer
