Re: How to repair an uneven paint job?
As long as you're staying about the same shade of brown, changing the color slightly shouldn't be a problem.
The problem you're expressing with a spotty application is common when painting walls a dark color, even with a tinted primer. It takes more coats to get a full, even coat across the surface. If your new color is as dark or darker, then it shouldn't take more than one or two coats to get a good coverage with the base you've already got. If you try to go lighter, say to a chocolate rather than a deep brown, then you'll probably need to primer to lighten and block the base coats before applying two or three top coats.
What most people don't realize with paint is that more is not better when it comes to painting.As long as you're applying the paint in thin, even coats, you shouldn't have a problem with "Ďtons-of-paint-on-the-wallí look Ė like itís been painted a thousand times". Glob the paint on with a thick nap roller and yeah, it's going to look hideous.
