    Painting Over High Gloss Paint

    Wow, that's a confusing subject line- sorry!

    I have a narrow wall in my bedroom that currently is painted a deep eggplant purple with a high gloss finish. I'm now wanting to go a few shades lighter on the paint chip to make the room brighter, so how do I go about covering the dark paint?

    I'm assuming sanding like crazy and a good thick coat of primer. Anything I'm not aware of in this situation?

    Thanks. :)

    You don't have to sand like crazy, just a bit. Plus there is a paint on material that might be called liquid sandpaper or somesuch that will prep the surface for you. Primer is warranted especially if you are using a different type of paint.

    But a few shades lighter of the same type of paint? Just plan on two to three coats over a light sanding.
