I'm going to be painting my kitchen. Right now, I'm filling holes and sanding the walls. The old paint is semi gloss. My question is, after sanding and cleaning, can I put semi-gloss on top of that? I've always changed from semi-gloss to an eggshell finish, but since this is the kitchen...
I'm also wondering that perhaps I should only use semi-gloss on the backsplash area. Either way, is the paint that contains primer in it, be a decent alternative to buying gallons of primer?
Paints do not 'contain' primer, rather the resins used are 'self-priming' on properly prepared surfaces e.g they have some adhesive qualities.
Any good quality paint can go right over the existing paint. Regal pearl is generally my finish of choice for kitchens/bathrooms.
