painted over high gloss paint... next steps?
 
Hi all,
I am painting a room in stages. A few months ago, I painted window and wall trim with high gloss white latex paint (Behr). I ended up splashing a lot of the walls near the trim. Today I finally painted the walls. What I did not realize is that there could be an issue painting red over the high gloss white.
Sanding the high gloss areas did not occurs to me before (and of course, I did not read about it first :( ) so now I am not sure what I should do. The spots where high gloss is under the new paint appear brighter than the rest. I thought that extra layers should take care of it (the appearance) but reading about this topic on this forum shows that the new paint may not bond as well to the high gloss. Does that mean that it will start peeling sooner at those spots? Would it still be years before that happens?
Any ideas of how to fix this or should I just keep going at this point?

Thank you in advance!

Who knows how long it will last, it's anyone guess.
It should have been lightly sand or deglossed, little late for that now.

You did prime the wall with a gray primer first, right.
If not your going to have to put a lot of coats of finish paint.

You could be describing a problem with the color itself. Red is one of the toughest paints to give good coverage. I would prime the splashed areas with something dark that covers well, like a green, blue, or grey, and then try the red again.

Alex,
By using the term "Brighter." does that mean that the top coat looks a little shinier near the trim? If so, try using a primer around the windows. You can buy Zinnser 1-2-3 Waterbase Primer almost anywhere. It can be tinted toward your finish color. If you are using a deep color, 1-2-3 also comes in a deep base.

Do not worry about the peeling right now. If there were no adhesion, the subsequent coats probably would be pulling it looseas they dry. As we say out here in the Bay Area, "Jump off that bridge when you get to it.: :)

Thank you everyone for the suggestions!
I did not prime it before hand, and I will indeed try spot priming on top of this new layer. It hasn't peeled yet, and is dry now :)
I was going to use the Zisner Stain Cover (oil base) but I'll for this other primer if they have tinted versions.

no need for the cover stain( unless you already have it, in which case it would be fine) any primer can be tinted( they will not come that way)
althogh,I have heard that Gripper @ HD or Lowes comes tinted Grey
