Help!

We're remodeling our house and are in the process of painting the interior walls. We had a company come in and spray the trim with a semi-gloss oil paint. We had been told you would have to "cut in" two coats of the latex wall paint over the overspray of the oil paint. That seemed to work great. But when we rolled the first wall with the satin latex paint (Sherwin Williams), it appears that you can see where the roller strokes overlap. It almost looks like the walls are striped! Any ideas?

Don't try to get more out of the paint than is there. Pressing too hard against the wall to stretch the paint will produce an accumulation of paint along the outside of the roller path. Gently apply the paint.

Wait until the paint is dry to try to evaluate its effectiveness. It all looks bad as it dries.

HELP!

Thanks for the reply. Actually, the paint is already dry and I can still see the stripes. Can I simply paint another coat over - paying attention not to force the paint? Or do I have prime and repaint?

Thanks.

Repainting will probably do the job.
