Is there any reason why a primer could not be used as an interior finish coat. It is for a ceiling with an orange peel texture in a basement.

We were likely to paint the ceiling white anyway.

Thanks!

I was told that primer typically doesn't contain the same amount of pigments that the finish paint does. So the appearance isn't going to be the same and you won't get a choice of egg-shell, semi-gloss, gloss, etc. Primers are all flat in my experience.
