I painted my kitchen walls that were white with a brick red color. The walls turned out very bad! The roller marks show and the paint is very uneven. I have applied two coats. Should I go back and primer over the paint, then apply the latex paint?

Hi Sandy,

I have the feeling the paint was a 'cheap' brand, or you didn't prep the walls very well. If you prime, then paint, you should be OK. BUT, before you do any more work, visit your local Paint Retailer for paint (who can be found in the YELLOW PAGES under PAINT - RETAIL.) Pay a few extra $$$ for good paint (and to avoid doing the job more than once.) Also, be sure of the proper nap in your roller. Talk to the Retailer for info.

Let us know how it turns out. What did you use for paint?

My best to ya and hope this helps.

Hey Jay J!

Thanks for the helpfil tips! I did buy a cheap paint from walmart. I think most of the problem was the nap.

MANY THANKS!!!!!
