I sure hope someone can help me. I decided to paint my kitchen which I was not aware of but had been painted by the previous owner with an oil based paint. I painted over that with 3 coats of latex trying to get an even finish. With no luck, I went to our local paint store and the guy said to use a primer. So I got a latex primer and put 2 coats on it and still no luck! I spot tested it and the paint still is not going on smoothly. Should I have used an oil based primer? Went to another paint store and was told the only way to fix it is sand down to the original and put an oil based primer over it. Needless to say, this will take forever! Now I am to the point of just putting paintable wallpaper over it but am afraid it won't stick. Can someone please help me?
Also, I am pretty sure that the previous owner may have painted over wallpaper
