help me fix a bad latex paint job in my bathroom please


how do I fix latex paint in my bathroom. I didn't prime after removing old wallpaper. There is much un-eveness with light and dark areas. Also the edges which were taped are peeling! Can someone tell me where to start? I think the current paint is still curing.

We don't know when you painted this so the fact that the paint is still curing is confusing. If it is an hour fine if it is days you have a problem. If the paint dries and the wall is smooth then use a good primer over the paint and start over. Prep is key when painting anything. Taking shortcuts costs more time an $$ in the end. Lesson learned.
If the wall is not smooth and the paint does dry, you can scrape off the paint, and try to get it smooth. Have a skim coat of mud applied or have the walls textured. Prime and paint when the wall is prepared properly.

Thanks for replying....I want to make the paint more even and repair the small spaces on the edges where I leftpainters tape on until after it dried (stupid me) My husband thinks he can fill in the unpainted edges with just more paint. I am afraid this s going to look horrible still.

This will not work, you will need to spackle this area and sand smooth, the rest of it is hard to say with out more info or a pic but it sounds as if it all needs spackled( mudded) ,sanded and re painted.
