Self priming paint over primer?
Curious whether using a self-priming paint over primer is a smart idea?
We're finishing a bathroom remodel. Had to put joint compound over virtually all surfaces to get the texture we wanted, so we knew we had to use drywall primer everywhere too. After two coats, I'm now looking at buying my paint, and didn't realize it would be so hard to find one that wasn't "self-priming." (we're looking primarily at Behr b/c Home Depot is close)
Can someone help me understand the benefits and drawbacks to using a self-priming paint in this scenario?
What else is there and what would you use?
The plan was to use semi-gloss on both the walls (for ease of cleaning) and ceiling (to help protect against spray from the shower). Each is a different color, though, if there's a better idea!
