eggshell over satin


I painted dining room/foyer with Beher satin...seems to "shiny" and left some dry patches (after three coats) Can I paint directly over with Eggshell, or do I need to sand down. The goal is to reduce the sheen and, hopefully, get a more uniform finish.

If the paint has cured (over a few weeks old) you should do a light scuff sanding
If it's only a few days old, then just paint over it

That and foremost "I painted dining room/foyer with Beher satin."..
go to a real paint store and get some quality paint, Behr is NOT it.

Thanks. I might be way off base, but I note a very slight distaste for Behr Paints on this board

The insight is much appreciated.

Though Behr paints give nice shades to choose from but i have read their quality is of low category. Why don's you opt for some other famous company with better quality.

Thanks, Dana. That's exactly what I did. Went back to BM and won't experiment ever again!
