Can you paint over a glossy EGGSHELL finish with FLAT paint to get a flat finish?


The paint purchased was EGGSHELL, and we have sprayed two coats…it is extremely SHINY. Homeowner wants a flat finish-any advice?

  1. Yes, paint over it with a flat finish paint, taking care to see that it covers without any "peeking thru" … give it 2 coats if necessary… Good Luck!

  2. Agree with Dave. Just spray on a flat, same color is best. In the future make sure the customer chooses the sheen and signs off on a color and sheen sample, we put ours on thick poster board.
