What to do After Patching Bathroom Walls?


I have just scraped, patched and sanded areas on bathroom wall that were peeling. I had used BM dove white latex paint. What is my next course of action? Should I just prime the spots I fixed with a latex primer and then paint or should I paint the entire bathroom wall with latex primer or another type of primer? I was going to use perma white but I have read it really has an odor. Is there anything else I can use in this area?

What to do After Patching Bathroom Walls?


Did read the 2 posts as suggested. My question is should i use a pigmented primer like BINS before applying perma white or can I use a good latex primer before applying perma white? Does anyone know if perma white really has a strong odor to it? Thanks

BIN is a pigmented shellac- way overkill for your needs.
If you are looking for a good low odor primer- i suggest Zinsser Zero ( if you can find it- Menards carries it around me), or Zinsser Smart Prime.
There are many good choices in a low odor paint for a bath. I would suggest it be an eggshell finish though.
Ben Moore makes Regal Select- I wouldn't hesitate to use that.
Perma white is a fairly good paint- If I remember right it does have an ammonia type smell. Not uncommon- lots of primers also have that. But paint is changing- and so are the options.
