Can I change the sheen of a paint?
So I bought a house and the old owner decided to do me a 'favour' and cover the nail and screw holes around the house. They did a terrible job. Huge patches of white compound all over the place, and they didn't even fill in the holes. I would have rather had their nails still in there, I could just hand something on it.
So in the kitchen there were many patches. I redid the patch with sanding, and primed the patches. I cut a piece of the drywall out so I could take it into the Home Depot to get it colour matched.
Using the piece I had, and the fact that it was a kitchen, the associate suggested the Kitchen & Bath paint (forget what brand).
The paints colour is a great match, but the sheen is not. The paint is too shiny and the patches are noticeable.
I know this is a stretch, but I'm wondering if there is an additive I can put into the paint to dull it a bit. Maybe like a chalky substance.
I could just repaint the certain wall in the kitchen, but I still wouldn't use this shiny paint. It shows too many flaws.
