Help! High Gloss Paint on Textured Walls

Posted by Mary on February 20th, 2003 11:55 AM

I am moving to an old house with textured walls with white high gloss finish over several old layers of paint. The walls have not been painted/cleaned for years and are pretty dirty. I'm not quite sure where to start--Would it be easier and/or more cost efficient to prime over the high gloss finish with something like KILZ and then paint or to use a chemical wash to remove the sheen and then paint? I am renting the house and do not plan to stay there long-term so cost is somewhat a factor.

Was this post helpful? Yes: or No:
