Painting Bathroom


I'm remolding my master bath and will take it down to the studs, so all surfaces will be new.
My plan for paint is to prime with Zinsser B-I-N and paint with Zinsser Perma White.
Opinions Please.
Thanks Mike

Mike, the bug crap is major overkill for new drywall. Perma White is self priming (meaning it has the bonding characteristics of a primer, not to be confused with the "paint and primer in one" box store junk), so you can get away with two coats of PW. That said, though, a good paint job is one coat primer and two coats paint, so I prefer to seal with a coat of Bullseye 123 and top with two coats of PW. If you want to use the PW as it's own primer add a third coat.
While you have it gutted, now's the time to add, check, or replace an exhaust fan, too.

I would use an ordinary latex drywall primer. Two coats. Shellac may work (I don't know), but it is very unpleasant to work with.

Shellac is overkill. PVA Drywall primer is underkill. A standard latex primer will do just fine and then 2 coats of atleast an eggshell paint but satin or semi-gloss is prefered.

Yeah...BIN is a fantastic primer, but drywall is waaaaayyy too absorbent.

Use 123, or other "Enamel Undercoater" primer. PVA "drywall" primers are OK, but there are better choices.

If you're FUSSY....apply 2 full coats of 123/similiar, wait a day, then lightly pole-sand the primecoats. You'll have a studly-smooth wall that the paint will show beautifully on.
If you just used a normal drywall primer on 1/2 a wall, and the above process on the rest...you'd see the difference a mile away.
