I am trying to paint my daughters room with a semi-gloss. I am trying to cover up semi gloss as well. She wants a large stripe through the middle, but when I removed the tape the underlying layer came right up with it! Luckily I was smart enough to do a test area and not waste all my paint and time! It is a damp basement room, so I’ve started running a dehumidifier in it.
My question, do I have to strip all the old paint, or is there something I can patch with and seal the rest? Also, I bought a commercial tape, claiming no bleeding…not so true…any suggestions?
