OK, so for this small bathroom, I'm going with the top stuff.

What other decent stuff do you suggest for my large living room? I've had no problems with CIL paint, just needed 4 coats to make it look good enough to me. Anything between BM and the cheaper paints?

I'd lean towards BM over SW. However I really like Pratt and Lambert Suprime primer and Accolade top coat for interiors.

Pratt is hard to find though.

I swear that a person could wear a black tuxedo and roll Pratt on a ceiling and there would not be a spec of splatter. It's such a pleasure to use. You can also have the paint store tint the primer to half the formula of the topcoat and then one topcoat will cover great .

Also , you should NEVER need more than 1 coat of primer( tinted) and 2 finish coats. You won't if you use good paint.Pittsburg paint would be my second choice,Duron and SW after that.

Well...if $$ is no object....

If that's a scenario, get FPE paint!

I used their Eurolux Matte (actually more of an Eggshell sheen) in my lower-bath. I've never used paint this nice. I can load the wall up with moisture, let it sit, and wipe it down later...NO change in appearance at all.
Including shipping, it was $45/Qt.
Eurogallons are ~ $100.

I washed the walls with Dirtex powder first, primed with C2-One primer, then a single coat of the FPE.

Ya want the best?...this is it.

(I've had the good fortune to sample/test some of their other paints...WOW. I was sold completely on it when their Wine Red color COMPLETELY hid a white sample board, and I was pulling the coat as thin as I could with a crappy foam brush. I then torture-tested it by leaving some pop & water sit on it for a whole day. Every so often, I'd rub the water on it firmly. End of day...wiped it off...NO trace anything had been on it...not even a burnish mark!)
