It all depends... if you are matching existing and the walls are in decent shape ( they are not all dirty) you can get away with 1/coat using Super Hide... if you use it make sure you are thorough with cutting and rolling and put it on kinda heavy... I wouldnt use it for trim though...

If it were me I would spend a few more bucks on the Super Spec just to make sure... it does cover well with one coat...

If the paint matches really close, you can roll over the darker spots or any marks that could show through if you only use 1 coat. You may also need to paint one or two whole walls again, but the rest may be fine with one coat of paint.

Hope this helps,
