I have accidentally used water based enamel paint on interior walls. I want to use the same colour but in low sheen. How do I fix this?

The term "enamel" only means a paint that drys to a HARD finish… it has no reference to sheen, ie flat, semi or gloss or egg shell…

To "fix" this simply paint over the wall with whatever you really want…
