I am hoping that someone can help me. I have just purchased my first home, and am trying to paint a bedroom. It was previously a dark blue latex paint covering the walls, so we had sanded and primed the entire room. We then painted the room with 3 coats of Olympic paint only to find it bubbling everywhere, and the paint completely peeled off all of the walls. I can pull the entire wall off in one sheet. The only layer remaining was the layer of primer. We returned the paint (thinking the paint was to blame) and then we got American Tradition paint, and were told to use Zinsser 1-2-3 primer (because it will stick to anything, and anything will stick to it). We then painted the room with 3 more layers of paint. After letting the room dry, it bubbled and once again, it all peeled off -- including the zinsser primer. The only thing left on the wall is the original coat of primer.

When painting, we allowed 1 day drying time between each coat so we don't think it has anything to do with that. Everyone we seem to ask is doesn't know what could be causing this. Does anyone know what the problem is or is this something that I am going to have to completely strip all of the walls down. If so, how do I go about that? Thanks for the help!!!

So what type of primer did you prime the room with ?

Are you sure everything is peeling down to the primer you applied?
