Spot primed - baaad


Riiiight...

You're one of those 'it's not good if it's not expensive camp people'.

What kind of car do you drive?
That's like saying 'no car is good unless it's $70,000'.
Hmmm, you Can get quality without mortgaging your house Chrisn.
Honda???! You've got to be KIDDING! If you want quality, you MUST get Acura or Lexus.
Uh, Ok.

We've had Ralph Lauren Matte on our house walls for over 12 years. They've been washed numerous times. Still look excellent.
Same with a friend who I've used same product.
CIL Smart is Canadian. It's a shame you don't have it. You'd orgasm. It's about $40 a gallon.

Thanks for the info Boman... I'll try some things out.

Hmmm.
Sorry for being a little testy. Thanks for your input.
This has kind of sidetracked from my original problem.

I was thinking of going Zinsser BIN (Shellac based) around the house to seal everything, but I didn't know what that might do to my top coat sheen.

Anyone ever use this as a base on their walls?

Sealing everything with Shellac is overkill in my opinion. If I were in your shoes, I would get a decent water-based primer/sealer tinted to the color of your walls, and put one coat of finish over top of that. That should certainly be sufficient for a rental. If you are in Canada, you might consider Sico as a decent, modestly priced (for the most part) alternative to Behr. We have used it for years and years and have had good experiences (for the most part) with it.

I think a second coat of paint will do the trick for you. "IF" you do decide to prime again, I just used some Pittsburg SpeedHide primer that I was very happy with. It was roughly $80 for a 5 gallon bucket. If Valspar is charging $145 for 5 gallons of primer, they need to be arrested for highway robbery.

they aren't, valspar drywall primer is $35 for 5 gallons and the color hiding primer is $15 a gallon, can't remember the 5 gallon price but it's less than 5 - 1 gallon cans
