I want to paint the interior of my house. Can I just paint over the glossy paint w/o prepping it?





The previous owners painted EVERYTHING and I mean everything glossy. I don’t want to go through alot of time prepping everything. Can I just buy the paint I want and paint directly onto the glossy paint and not have to worry about too much problem with adhesion? Please say yes.

    If you mean using water based paint on top of oil based paint then no, it will peel off.

  • ehm... yup:

    Nope it will peel… with normal paint at least.. buy kilz paint .. it is an original primer but now has paint so you can just paint right over it .. so yes you can with special paint.. few extra bucks no problem lol..

    Well….it depends. most likely no. Usually you need to use a primer to go from glossy to flat. But there are some new paints out there that may work. I highly recommend three things:
    1. Go to a paint store for advice, like SHerwin Williams. (Not home depot etc.)
    2. Use fine sandpaper to go over the glossy areas lightly to help insure sticking.
    3. Use a quality paint. yes it costs more but the cheap stuff is terrible!

    Yes, and no. You can paint over gloss without prep but you may have chipping and peeling problems later. I would use the liquid termed “gloss cutter” which is very fast and easy to use. Just wipe it on.

    You want yes, you get yes, but it will certainly take more than one coat and probably chip off. As you obviously already know, you should prime and then paint. Since it will take at least two coats of paint, you might as well prime first. They are now tinting primer, so you could use that for good adhesion, and maybe it would cover. (And you can use latex primer or paint over oil based paint, which they probably didn’t use, anyway.)
