Dumb question - is it ok to prime ceiling and walls at the same time?

ok - this what the guy at the paint store suggested. We are doing a light sanding - not power sanding, is this enough? also, what's wrong with the sw ceiling paint? I thought sw was a good paint and the guy at the SW store told me I didn't have to buy the expensive paint for the ceiling. I think the one I have is called eminence...

LIGHT sanding yes

Nothing wrong with Brilliance, I just don't like it. It does not cover well. I would go with their Classic 99 flat white, now that was a fine ceiling paint

PS, they probably have named it something different since I was there last.

Nothing at all wrong with the S-W ceiling paint. Lessee if I got this straight; light sanding, Multi-Purpose primer, Eminence ceiling paint, Emerald wall paint. Everything sounds right to me.

ya they missed a spot! im in sault ste. marie ontario canada, im on the border of the u.s and they have one across the bridge, definitely not going over there just for a can of paint when theres lots of different brands here. i mainly use dulux and pittsburgh. there are 2 benny moore suppliers but theres never any good sales and the arua is $65 a gallon here.

Aura is 65+ everywhere. But sometimes- like as a trim paint or if you need a bullet proof finish, its worth it.
