Latex Enamel over Latex Semi-Gloss


Is it OK to paint latex enamel semi-gloss over regular latex semi-gloss for trim and doors currently in the regular latex semi-gloss and/or does it need any special prep work?

I would scuff them first, but you will be fine.

I think what Matthewt means is to sand the surface to remove the sheen and give the new paint something to bond to. Get some 120 or 150 grit sandpaper and go over the entire surface.
Welcome to the forum.
