I was so excited to find two gallons of RL's "Dressage Red" paint on the Oops Shelf at Home Depot....until I started reading some of these posts. However, after reading ALL of the posts, I'm comforted...somewhat. I will definitely use a tinted primer and will not expect to apply less than three coats...which was what I expected to use anyway. Thanks for all of your posts. I'll let y'all know how my living room turns out!
