painting semi gloss over high gloss on wood

Ruth_123June 21, 2013

Help! Our painters mistakenly used Benjamin Moore Advance High Gloss alkyd paint on our interior trims and doors, instead of the SEMI Gloss version as we had requested!

Is it possible to simply paint the "correct" semi gloss over the high gloss? Or should the high gloss be sanded off and the wood reprimed?

All advice gratefully received!

Scruff? I'm still trying to figure out what 'scuff sanding' is here and now you throw in 'scruff'?

Thanks very much, guys! Phew! The scuffing sounds a bit less labor intensive! :-)

Our painters suggested using the wasted paint on some exterior woodwork - doors, louvers etc. Do you think that a high gloss alkyd would be suitable for this purpose, or should we cut our losses?!

Thanks again for all the advice!!

Interior paint shouldn't be used outside and certainly oil based paint should not be used outside.

Sounds like it was the painter's mistake. You shouldn't have to pay for the wasted paint, IMO.
