Do you need two coats of primer?

Using a good drywall primer may only require one coat, but two coats is ideal number here. A second coat covers up these flaws, as well as replenishing any primer from the first coat that was absorbed. Using a multi-purpose primer or self priming paint will require two coats for that desired finish.

Painting Damaged Drywall and New Wood
When you're repainting a wall just to change the color, you can usually omit the primer; the existing paint seals the wallboard, and you should get even coverage and satisfactory adhesion. Without the primer, the smoke or water spots may bleed through the topcoat.

Do you cut in on second coat?

If the first coat covered well, nothing showing through, then perhaps skip the cut-in. But if it covered that well, then maybe the second coat isn't needed. Since a second coat is desired or needed, yes, cut in again as well. Sure would hate to discover a second layer was needed after the paint dries.

Do you roll or cut in first when painting?

Cut in the corners before you roll paint on the main surfaces. This means painting both sides of each corner starting about two brush lengths away and painting in to the corner. Use a 2- or 3-inch brush for paints. You can cut-in around the trim either before or after rolling.
