Touch up satin painted walls?

EmilyBbunny42Michele Pappagallo


I had left over paint I thought was the same but it turned out to be flat when I painted over the satin. Now what can I do to make it match. It is the correct color, just flat.
Thank you.

    You will need to get the same color paint in a satin finish to make it match exactly. The flat finish will not have the same gloss level as the satin finish, so it will always look slightly duller than the rest of the wall.

    The simplest thing to do might be to take your paint to the paint store and ask if it can be changed from flat to satin. If not, just get the satin in one of those sample cans, which should run you less than $5.

    Give it a coat of polyurethane and check all paint cans before use.
