mixing paint

I painted a room with a blue latex, semi gloss. The blue came out a little too dark and a little too shiney. I have a 1/2 gallon of flat white, same brand. If I mix it with the 1/2 gallon of blue semi gloss that I have left will it work OK? Can I just paint over the semi gloss on the wall, or will the mix not stick well?

Thanks for comments!

I painted it on Sunday. I would rather not wait 2 weeks to fix this.

Will it be OK if I pole sand, wipe down, and repaint? Will pole sanding de-gloss enough?

Or should I pole sand and prime before painting?

I will look into de-glossing agents.
