    This was a weekend project for me...Friday morning 9am-Sunday evening 9pm. I painted the paneling in my daughters room it was that ugly brown with the black seams. After 2-3 coats of primer in the seams and all over. I was able to paint each wall a different color, Pink, Purple, Blue and Green. The more primer I used the closer I was able to get the color it was supposed to be. If you want a light or bright color you will have to use a quite a few coats of primer. I didn't have any trouble with the paint sticking, and it came out beautifully. I can't wait to do my entrance and hallway.

    I used two coats of Zinzer as a primer then two coats of Behr 'Paint & Primer in One'. Turned out great!
