Our bathroom ceiling was badly pitted and paint was peeling (there was no
mold). So I did a good job of scarping patching. Let it dry for a week
and then primered and put one coat of bathroom paint (that was last week).
Now I am wondering if putting more coats of paint will make it last longer.
If it does help, I would gladly put 2 more coats. Or it will eventually
start pitting and peeling again, and I will end up with deeper pits? Any

| I always put two coats over primer, looks better that way. All repair
| work and primer is no longer visible under two coats.
| For the bathroom use semi gloss, never a flat paint.
Benjamin Moore Aqua Pearl w/mildewcide would be preferred paint.
they also make a "kitchen & bath " paint with mildewcide.
always use 2 coats of finish over primer, it is easier to clean.
