Used Behr Sandwash textured paint which ended with streaks. Any ideas on how to fix this problem and salvage this project???

Hi JDriver,

From where I'm sitting, I can't stand Behr Paint. WOrst yet, it's textured paint.

My suggestion for your 'fix' may not sit well w/you. In short, you get what you pay for. If I were you but I'm not, but if I were, I'd buy some quality Primer/Sealer and topcoat paint. Sherwinn-Williams, Finneran and Haley, or the like. Look in the YELLOW PAGES under PAINT - RETAIL and go from there. If the Behr is dark, apply 2 coats of primer and plan on at least 2 coats of topcoat.

My best to ya and hope this helps.

You could just match the color of the textured paint in a regular latex flat wall paint and apply it over the what is on the wall now. Also 2 coats of primer is a waste of time and the finish paint will cover better anyway as the primer is just sealing the surface.

Bottom line - The paint will bleed. If you want to see the color that you're buying, then I'd Prime and Seal what you have now. If you don't, who knows what the final color will look like. Sure, 2 coats MAY seem like over-kill, but if you want to be sure you Primer/Sealer coverage is a 'sound' one, I'd do 2 coats. You've already had one 'mistake' (for the lack of better words ...)

My best to ya and hope this helps.
