I've got a couple of rooms that have a medium to dark color (I think
brown and some navy blue stripe) and I want to paint it like a coconut
or off white color. I'm expecting 2 coats of a decent quality paint
to cover it but is it possible it could take 3 coats of paint? I
realize I'll know this once the 2 coats are on it but for now, what is
depends upon what you're using for paint.
you might go with a primer base, tinted to 50% of your eventual eventual
color, followed by a coat of good paint.
my guess is you won't know until you get 2 coats up.
I used behr paint with primer, one coat. I had to be careful to look for
spots that didn't cover. Your colors, probably 2 coats. I painted my
kitchen red, at least 4 coats using the old glidden without primer. Red
If you want to be safe and not have to worry about the number of coats
of paint, you might consider a single coat of a white primer first and then
the paint. I like to think of it as creating a white canvas for my topcoat
of paint. I like using BIN but there are water based alternatives.
