Paint the ceiling or primer only?
 
Do people usually paint the ceiling if they are leaving it white, or just put primer on it?

The walls were a light blue before, I put 1 coat or primer on, and I can see the blue faintly coming through still, should I put another coat of primer on the walls?

TIA

Primer then paint

Primer is never good for a top coat. It is porous and will absorb dirt grime and anything else that comes in contact with it.
