how do I make shiny paint job dull

I painted over some scuffs on my ceiling.  However, the new paint is much shinier than the existing flat paint job.  Now the new paint sticks out.  How do I dull the shiny areas without wasting all that work.

Unfortunately, there is no answer other than recoating with a more appropriate sheen of paint  :smileysad:

Welcome to the community!


I feel for you on this one:smileyfrustrated:   Unfortunately there isn't a quick fix for this kind of situation.


You will have to either go over all the spots again with flat paint or just repaint the whole ceiling.  I suggest painting the whole ceiling because sometimes if the paint is too shiny it may require two coats to properly cover.


Sorry...I wish there was a better way.
