WHAT CAN WE USE TO PRIME THE WALLS IN OUR LIVINGROOM, WHICH HAVE RECENTLY BEEN STRIPPED OF WALLPAPER, WASHED TWICE WITH DIF, AND SANDED, PRIOR TO APPLYING THE ORANGE PEEL TEXTURE AND PAINT, TO PREVENT ANY DAMAGE FROM ANY RESIDUE LEFT OVER FROM THE ADHESIVE?

I would prime with a pigmented shellac such as Zinsser BIN to make sure you don't have problems with the old adhesive bleeding through.

I have a lot of respect for Zinsser BIN, but would not use it to prime the walls. Its overkill in this interior application, hard to clean up, higher fume emissions, and just more difficult to use. A 100% acrylic stain blocking primer would be perfectly appropriate and much easier to use. Examples: Benjamin Moore 023 primer; Kelley Moore 971 Acryl Prime.

It sounds like these walls are very well prepped for painting. Wallpaper adhesive has been stripped, washed and double rinsed; and the walls were sanded and texture applied. I see no problems here. In fact, most quality interior paint is self-priming, and a separate primer may not be needed. I recommend you go to a professional paint store, take their suggestions for high quality interior paint and application products. You can't really go wrong. If you prime, ask for primer to be pre-tinted towards finish color.

WE HAVE NOT TEXTURED THE WALLS YET. WE WERE WONDERING IF PRIMING BEFORE TEXTURING WOULD CREATE BETTER ADHESION OF THE TEXTURE. WE WANT TO DO THIS RIGHT, BUT CANT GET MUCH INFO FROM THE "PROFESSIONALS" AT ********** OR *****.

Since I know the list automatically deletes the names of certain big box retailers, I know you are not dealing with a professional paint store. Try elsewhere. If you see contractors that make a living doing painting at the counter, you are at the right place. I suspect you have not seen anything but overworked clerks helping homeowners. There is a difference. Check it out.

I have not bothered to prime before texture and have had no problems with adhesion in exactly your case. You do need to prime over texture because it is soft and will absorb paint. The primer will protect the texture and help finish coat.

Use Zinsser (spell check)123 latex primer.As long as all glue residue is removed ,this is a great bonding sealer primer.
