There are advertisements for paint all the time that talk about covering in one coat! What a laugh! To get a great paint job two light coats will usually do the trick. Unless…
you get pure white and try covering over grease, water spots, fly specs(poo) and etc. then 2 coats aren’t enough. That is me looking like I was about ready to strangle the paint salesman. I knew it wouldn’t cover, but after 2 coats on the trim and the house still needing another coat – I wasn’t happy. We just bit the bullet and bought more paint and came back another day to finish. The house ended up looking great but here’s a reminder – paint does not cover in one coat.
So don’t go to home depot and buy expensive behr paint with the primer included…that’s a gimmick! To steal your money – people fall for this all the time. 2 coats of paint required – sometimes 3. Expensive paint does not change this fact. Also do not use pure white ever! Always choose something with a little tint in it – like Swiss coffee – a very popular “off” white
Complete – she looks good!
