A friend of mines wife changes paint colors in her home twice a year in various rooms after she gets a wild hair after one of those trading, design, or flip this that and whatever shows. Just how many layers can the sheetrock take? I think she must have a ¼” layer on there by now.

I've been told paint dries to 2 mils (two thousandths of an inch).
Assuming 2 coats (4 mils)
1/8" thickness = 31 (two-coat) paint jobs.
