PRIMER HIDES DARK COLORS
When you’re trying to fall in love with a new color, the last thing you need is your ex-color showing up and ruining everything. That’s why you should consider KILZ 3® Premium Primer when going from a darker color to a lighter color. It hides dark colors and makes sure they don’t ever call you again.
WHAT TO DO
Starting with the lighter color for the top half of the wall (in this case KILZ Complete Coat® in White Wing), apply using the same application method as the primer (using a brush first to cut in around the edges 4 to 6 feet at a time, then use a roller to fill in those sections before moving along). Remove the tape before the paint is fully dry.
Once the paint is dry, reapply the tape so the bottom edge is even with where the White Wing paint ended (essentially making sure the darker bottom color meets exactly where the lighter color stopped!). Then apply KILZ Complete Coat® in Orange Crush to the bottom half of the wall using the same application method as before (using a brush first to cut in around the edges 4 to 6 feet at a time, then use a roller to fill in those sections before moving along).
Remove the painter’s tape before the orange paint is fully dry, and you’re done!

THE BIG REVEAL
A neglected and dark spare room is transformed into a sunny and sweet nursery with the help of KILZ® Primer and paint. The existing deep berry-hued walls wouldn’t do for the light and bright look desired for the space, calling for KILZ 3® Premium Primer. Formulated with a thicker high hiding formula, KILZ 3 Premium Primer hides surface imperfections, prepares the surface better for painting and hides previous dark colors with ease.
After primer is properly applied and allowed to dry it’s time for some fun color blocking in a fresh white and happy orange hue. KILZ Complete Coat® in White Wing is used for the top half of the wall, while the same paint in Orange Crush LB200-02 brightens up the bottom. KILZ Complete Coat provides a durable, highly scrubbable finish, making for easy-to-clean walls ideal for children’s rooms.
Primer and paint take the room from dim to delightful, and now it’s time to decorate! A hanging chair creates a relaxing space for rocking and reading, while a sweet white crib pops against the orange paint color and ties to the white hue on the upper wall. Fanciful artwork and a colorful mobile complement the color-blocking and create a fun focal point.
