Semi-Gloss Paint- Do I need to sand to repaint?


Hello Everyone!

Here is a question for your painting professionals:

I am repainting my bath and laundry room which is a white semi-gloss paint (new home). I am painting it a light beige semi-gloss. Is it necessary to sand, and primer prior to painting, can I just primer?

Thank you for your assistance in advance! You guys are great!

Skip the primer and just give it a light sanding.

as mentioned, just a light sanding is all that's needed, unless you do any repairs to the wall
