Over painted trim


Doing my son's room in dark colors....trim/ceiling red walls blue. Whole room in grey primer.
I didnt tape/carefully do the trim-"over bordered" onto wall where the blue will go.
Should I redo the areas again with the grey primer? Will there be a discoloration when blue goes over the red?

I think the red ceiling, and possibly crown paint got a little lower on the walls than it should
The walls are going to be blue

Normally, with say Ben Moore Regal or Sherwin Williams Deep Colors, I wouldn't worry about it
If it's that Behr, you'd better gray prime the spots

Blue and red huh?
Where's the big B going?

Blue and red = Thomas the train.
Actually the paint I am using is Glidden. I know i know I didnt know anything about paint until I logged onto this forum after i bought the paint .
Anyway I just decided to go over the areas with the grey primer

Awww...I thought it was going to be the Boston Red Sox theme
Thomas is good too though

Gray priming the areas would be the prudent thing to do
It will eliminate possible problems later
Thomas' red and blue are kinda bright, best to have an even canvas to start with

Red Sox? You talking to a yanks fan here.
I know they're up in the standings, but they'll blow it as usual.
