painting over "lifting"

I just finished painting a used bed with enamel spray paint. Many small areas have lifted, despite following instructions on the can. The first coat had cured for a week. After seeing what happened I experimented, and I actually had better luck with an area that I gave two heavier coats within a half hour! I know I'll have to sand areas that have blistered, but what I want to know is whether I can in any way paint over with latex. Could I give a heavier sanding to the entire bed, or use a deglosser to make the latex adhere?

Welcome to the forums

If you wish to to recoat with latex you need to sand all surfaces well. Deglossers often help to soften up the old paint allowing the next coat to adhere. Depending on the spray paint you might find that the deglosser might remove the paint instead of just prepping it.
