I agree with Irene K. and I'm not a professional painter. I decided to paint my bathroom with RL Congo Red. Patience is definately key here. I used the red tinted primer and then put the first coat on and was depressed because it looked awful. I was ready to throw in the towel but my husband (who, by the way is a fan of white ...) talked me into continuing. Three coats later and I have one stunning bathroom, not bad for a mid-60's tri-level! Everyone loves it. Really, the trick is patience and taking your time. I found out just how much I loved painting in the process.
