I didn't see drips and spatters anywhere above. Good pain is 100% latex
and is designed to hold to the brush/roller and spread on the wall. It's
a "non-newtonian fluid", designed to slide when pressure is applied and
glop otherwise. Cheap paints have clay as a filler don't spread a nicely
and will soak up any moisture around. ...including the next coat.
Saving a few bux on paint is foolish. ...even a 50% savings is dumb,
considering the time spent on the job.

Absolutely! I no longer allow my wife to buy paint. If it needs to be
painted it's my job, so I pick the supplies. The Benjamin Moore
products are amazing (not to mention th help I get from the local store),
compared to the cheap shit. Yes, it's expensive stuff but so is my
frustration. BTW, she doesn't get to pick colors anymore either. ;-)
I saw the exact same situation on "Weekend Warriors" on HGTV. Red wall, drippy,
etc. It ended up being the paint. They returned it, got new stuff and it worked
fine. Glad your wife is listening to you :-)
