What brand of paint for best coverage?
All the walls in my home are some shade of blue. The pale colors do not bother me, but the darker blue makes my rooms look extremely dark. I had the living room painted what was supposed to be "pearly white" with eggshell finish, but even after three coats, it was still blue... a pale blue, but still blue and not white. The same color went down a stairwell, so had primer put on that wall first, and even after two coats of the same "white" color, it was still blue, an even paler blue than without the primer, but still blue, nevertheless. The paint was Sherwin Williams "ProMar". Including the paint, I had to pay $800 to get a living room and stairwell that was pale blue instead of the warm white I wanted! I want to have the bedroom, bathrooms, and office painted, and maybe the kitchen too, but I want white walls, not ANY shade of blue. Does anyone know a brand of paint and primer that would guarantee that the final result would match the color selected?
