White paint over yellow painted walls?


Hello. I would like to change the color of our kitchen walls. The walls has just been newly painted with yellow color, but that is not the color I want. I like it to be off-white. Can I just apply the off-white paint over the yellow walls?

Wouldn't the yellow paint show after I paint over the white? Yellow is a more prominent color than white. I am afraid I will mess up my walls.

Two coats of a QUALITY paint will cover the yellow, no problem.
