Try using a lamb skin heavy nap roller and Ralph Laurin or Benjam Moore paint as they cover very good.


rhonda, rhonda, rhonda,

do your shoulders hurt from your head banging on them as you bobble head whine. May have read the directions.

But you did not follow them. Next time before you do anything try reading the directions first.


seeing how it would take three gallons of sandstone to do one coat on a room that size do not see how you managed to put four coats on in some spots? also, sandstone being thicker texture should be allowed to dry longer.

that means there is no way you finished two coats in only fourteen hours when the second coat is to be applied by a brush only. next time try telling the truth or better yet read the instructions.


Did you use a stain blocker and not just a dry wall primer ? Are painting over a glossy or oil paint ?

Your painting 4 times a year? -do you rent ?


Paint there makes me happy very not. Home Depot you go. Very happy they make you.


Huh?....I don't know what she said, but she said it!
