wanted to give you the latest update...I'm finished and it came out pretty darn good. I'm very pleasantly surprised that it looks as good as it does. I'll even go so far as to say that I may paint a couple of the rooms in the new house myself...although those ceilings are textured...but, hey...ya never know!!
I will say that priming the whole wall, rather than spot priming made all the difference in the world. The primer worked beautifully...even though it's an extra step, it was well worth it. Although I liked the paint from Loew's...next time I will try the paint from SW just to see the difference.
Jay & Steve....thanks so much for all the help. Until the next project, take care, and have a great weekend.
