We are painting our family room in a maroon satin. After 3 coats, the color is finally even, but it is not smooth - there are lots of marks from the roller and paint brushes (like where we left off with the roller). I suppose we just weren't careful enough, although we tried! We don't really *need* a satin finish. One friend suggested doing another coat in the same color but flat, to hide the defects. Can you do that? Would it help? Thank you!!!

hollyob, If you have a large home center near you it would be good to get a sander like drywallers use that screws on a rolling stick. They are plastic and cheap and if you will put 100 grit paper on it and lightly sand the walls it will help get a good smooth final coat. You can go straight over the satin with flat but unless you use Sherwin-Willaims SuperPaint or other top of the line paint it will likely take two coats. Latex flat will hide imperfections and probably look better than the satin.....Mike
