How Many Paint Coats to Cover Red?

I can answer that. It took 4. Up and down the ladder and stairs for 2 days to get 4 coats of white primer on one wall to cover that dark red paint. I let the paint dry completely over the weekend before painting the wall its final color of yellow gold. I had only time to put on one coat of yellow paint today and will have to touch up around all the woodwork tomorrow. It certainly isn't as easy as they show on TV.

wow! it never is as easy on tv.. especially with read... i painted my kitchen red (covering a mix of light green, yellow and white paint), and it took 3 coats of tinted primer and two coats of paint... and it still needs touching up.
