HELP - fixing a bad paint job


We made the mistake of painting new drywall with a semigloss of paint/primer mixed. Now all the imperfections show where the seams in the drywall was "mudded" and sanded.

Any ideas on how to fix this with the least amount of work? Can I put primer over the semigloss?

We are getting carpet on Friday . . . .

Pitch out the Behr crap. Go to a real paint store, tell them what you did, buy some real paint and primer that they recommened. Start over and do it the right way.
