HI Guys,
Let me start by saying, I have never painted a wall before myself -so I watched a few online youtube videos and did other research before jumping in.

I bought this Glidden semi gloss paint, a shade of orange and started doing it. But after a while I had to step out; came back and continued and by the time I finished the area which I did before looked darker. I kinda played cool and waited for it to dry (all). Now this morning when I go back and see it still looks darker. I have painted a second coat on the same wall including the area which has darker looking paint and waiting for it to dry but I suspect it will still have a darker look.

What do you guys suggest in normalizing the look? The rest of the wall looks amazing but this patch is just making me feel bad.

Do I have to buy flat white paint, do the whole wall white again and then paint it back with this orange shade? Please say no to this 🙂

I particularly want to know how to fix this?
