painted drywall without primer - how do I fix this?
I scraped the popcorn texture off of a ceiling successfully, then went to the paint store and told the man I wanted "the stuff you paint on the ceiling after you've scraped off the popcorn texture'. He gave me something he called 'ceiling paint'.
Oops, I should have googled the process first because, of course, 'ceiling paint' is not primer. The stuff came off in weird spotty places as I was painting, left little divots here and there and looked pretty ratty. I figured I could sand and repaint the bad parts later. I waited a couple of days, then masked off the edges so I could paint the walls. I used the nice painters tape that really did an excellent job protecting the trim, but when I pulled it off the ceiling it brought all of the new paint with it and left really nasty looking 'holes' all along the edges. I sanded it a bit and now I don't know what to do. Should I try to put primer on top of all of this? Or should I just put another coat of that 'ceiling paint'?
The walls look fantastic and I don't want to mess them up.
