Fixing roller nap problem

Marko1May 31, 2011

Hi,

I made the mistake of using the wrong nap size while painting the first wall of my living room. Switching to a 1/2" Wooster nap on the other walls solved the problem. So how do I repaint to fix that one wall? Should I prime it white and paint again, or just sand and repaint? I'm worried that the second coat will be too dark and I will have to repaint the entire room, which other than that first wall, looks fine.

BTW, the living room had old plaster walls that needed a longer nap. I used California Paints in an Oatmeal shade.

Thanks,

Marko

It should not effect the color at all. I wouldn't even sand (unless it has been a few weeks). Just repaint that wall with the correct sized nap roller.

Just wondering
