Interesting. You don't see my response, "Two coats means two coats,
not one." as indicating my answer to the OP's question?
Paint is not solely a cosmetic coating. It is also a protective
coating. Two thin coats wears better and lasts longer than one thick
By the way, if you are painting over existing paint, buying a premium wall
paint will usually result in the need for one coat, not two. I sometimes
say "I don't buy cheap paint - it's too expensive." If you need twice as
many gallons and it takes you twice as long to do, it's not much of a
bargain any more. Top quality paint will cost in the $22-30 range usually.
And usually very worth it.
You can't buy premium paint. It involves opening the yellow pages and
finding a real paint store, instead of mindlessly going to Home Despot. If
you *do* manage to locate a paint store, you can't get there without a map,
which you can't get because the kids are hogging the computer, and even
though gas stations sell nice local map books, it's illegal to buy them or
look at them.
Just forget the whole idea.
