To prime or not to prime?

wensilvernellNovember 14, 2010

Would really appreciate your comments.... Want to repaint a small bathroom, just primed and painted (new construction) with 2 coats of Valspar latex satin "Milkpaint" 4 months ago. Do I need to prime again or just sand really well? BTW, not impressed at all with Valspar, (painted entire enterior of house with it), will be using something else. Any suggestions on favorite brands and/or colors? Looking for beige/khaki as I would like to beadboard the lower half of walls eventually.

Thanks so much.

No need to reprime unless you are using the primer as a tinted base coat to achieve a color. As with most things in life, you tend to get what you pay for: find a paint store that sells better brands and you should be good to go.
