Shaken, not stirred, Mr. Bond
I'm almost embarrassed to ask for advice because it's so basic but here goes -
I am repainting a powder room. I found some old trim paint to use so the trim will (finally) match the rest of the downstairs. The paint is probably 10+ years old. I have about 1/2 a can and then a plastic container (about the size of a paint can) of the same color that is 3/4 full. I don't know why it's 2 containers, someone else did the painting 10 years ago.
Can they still be used? Do I bring them back to BM for them to shake? Can they be mixed together?
This is a small room - 5x4, with tile slightly more than 1/2 way up the walls. I keep a bathroom air freshening spray product in there (Oust or something along that line). Because of the spray, the walls are covered with shiny spots. What type of finish (is that the correct word?) should I use for the wall paint? Should I use a semi-gloss, like the trim, so that the spots are less noticeable and, maybe, easier to wipe off? I usually go with eggshell but because of the shiny spots I wondered if another finish would be a better choice.
Thanks for your help and patience with a very, very inexperienced painter (as if I had to point that out!).
