I painted a bedroom in a semi-gloss paint and I hate the glossy look, how do I correct this?

The color is a dark navy blue.

    Going to have to paint again. Flat if no one's fingers ever touch the walls. Eggshell if you need light wash-ability.

    No need to sand. Any decent latex paint adheres to latex semi-gloss just fine.

    Lightly sand the walls then put a new coat of of same color paint but use a non glossy finish such as a flat latex paint. My husband use to paint inside house's when he was younger for a living and thinks this will look the best for your room. Good Luck!!

    I was reading some of the answers that other people gave you. You can't just paint over semi-gloss paint. You have to lightly sand it in order to get rid of the gloss, or else the new paint won't stick to your wall.
