I am having the same problems as others and am painting only the bottom (below chair moulding) half of my dining room. The areas that were cut in look Ok, but the roller leaves streaks and outlines. The whole wall still looks "shadowy" even after 3 coats (1.5 gals). I have tried to follow the instructions, but it seems that you wil need MUCH more paint than the instructions suggest. I will try again, but am not looking forward to the results.
