Repainting

Have a quick question. When we first moved into our home, I went cheap and painted a room with semi-gloss Behr paint (kids room). After that, I used Ben Moore for the rest of the house and now, comparatively, the first room looks like crap. Since the room is semi-gloss, would I have to prime and then recoat, or would BM over the Behr work fine?

Thanks guys
Bob

Welcome to the forums

Personally, I would recommend a thorough but light scuff sanding with a drywall sanding screen and some fine mesh screens
Then a good cleaning (with a dry type swiffer if available) to remove the dust from sanding

Then two coats of that Premium Ben Moore
