Can you paint an eggshell paint finish over a semi gloss finish and not have any trouble with it adhering?

Yes, as long as the eggshell is the same type of paint. Example- latex over latex. Make sure the surface is clean, in good shape and use good paint.

Hi kim, as long as the two coats are of the same material (oil based paint, latex, alkyd or acrylic paint), it'll be OK.

Good luck, Evelien
