Thanks for all of your help regarding this issue. The 9 gallons of paint I used was accross the whole basement which is about 1100 sq ft and with 3 coats this doesn't seem to be to much to me. I am trying to get away from having to reprime and paint 2 coats again since it is such a large area and I have a tv mounted already and you have to be about 6 inches to a foot away from the wall to see the joints but there is not stipple on the wall even after using a 3/4 inch nap roller on the last coat and the wall feels extemely dry. My only concern is the dryness and whether or not I should be worried about moisture or durabilty or loss of color becasue of it. it has been 30 days since the last coat and there is still sheen and everyone that comes over thinks it looks great but when I turn my lights off and have just the TV on then i can see every joint and tape mark on the whole wall. Will the walls be as durable and just have a few blemishes or should I be concerned about no stipple and it feeling really dry? this house is just a investment and I will only be in it for about 3 years but just want to make sure it is going to be okay.
