My daughter just purchased a 1950's tract house. It's a cute little place, but has been neglected. We scraped the popcorn, patched some holes and cracks, and shot the ceiling with a light orange peel/knockdown texture.
I need a good primer that will cover old roof leak stains, seal the new taping, patching and texture, and prep everything for 2 coats of paint. (Also recommendations for a good ceiling paint.) The walls also have many patches and a few areas where previous patches were covered in a shiny (semi-gloss??) paint in the middle of a flat/matte wall. I should lightly sand those - right?
I've used zinzzer before, but someone told me I should use a kilz product due to the dark ceiling stains. (And yes, there's a new roof so they won't be coming back!)
Any suggestions and tips would be appreciated.
