I need help...(a bedroom project)
I would like to paint over an existing dark paint with a lighter coat of paint. I don't know if this is possible.

Sure it is. I would recommend however that you start witb a white base color so your new color will be true. This will give you a clean palete to work on. Use one of those base paints made to cover over paint. You will have to do less coats to get your new color than if you try to paint your new color over the old. Kiln 123 is a good choice. I did this over pink so I would see only a light blue with no pink peeping through. It didn't take too long.
