Paint help

maimieSeptember 18, 2012

Hi All, I just moved into a lovely condo but I want it painted, 6 rooms. At $45 a gallon, I don't want to be making mistakes, etc. I have the colors selected but does anyone have advice re best kind of paint? The walls are fine just need painting. Is it worth buying the primer & paint all in one? Any advice will be appreciated. Thank you.

In most cases already painted walls do not need a primer. Drive to the nearest independent paint store, development at least a cursory relationship with the people there, use their advice, buy their product & paint. They will probably save you more than I already have.
