Problem with wall between living room and bathroom.

Anne asked 7 years ago

Had a friend 2 yrs. ago paint the inside wall of historic home, mine, with satin paint instead of flat paint to make “area more inviting and warm” (his quote). The reason why I used flat paint in the past was because this area was known to peel very often, flat roof and air ducts are floor level not roof and we could easily scrape down and repaint.

Well, he talked me into using different type of paint in which was a lot more money and at the time it did look good. HOWEVER, not for long. The peeling and bubbling came back quicker and worse than ever. He was not a contractor so I am out of luck there. Took steps to repair, plumbing in bathroom, which he “took care of” and repainted wall between bath and living room. Had a roofer come out, no leak. Had AC man come out, all air ducts are sealed.

I do not know what to do. Should I strip off old paint and go back to flat paint. PS – do not have friends do home repair – back fired.
