Unhappy Paint too glossy

Hi there. I recently completed painting some interior wood walls with some paint that I thought had just enough sheen to make for easy cleaning. But it turns out...way too glossy! Is there anything I can apply or do to dull the finish besides repainting it all with something more matte?? Thanks

Welcome to the diy forums!

What type of paint did you use?

Generally the only way to lessen the sheen is to repaint with a lower sheen paint. Curtains, pictures, lighting, etc. may change how you percieve the sheen.
