Uneven Finish

Tara C Staff asked 4 years ago

I painted my bedroom in eggshell, tan color, and after it was dry I noticed it is all uneven. Shiny in some spots and dull in others. Will this go away with a second coat? What did I do wrong?

Probably poor application or low grade paint or paint that was not stirred beforehand…

Tough question as there are many potential causes for this problem. I will suggest based on my experience you will be well served to apply a second coat. In general, do-it-yourselfers will not apply enough paint to get an even coat. When painting, try not "dry-rolling" and apply more paint.
