A few weeks ago, I had to do some minor repair around the recessed lighting cans in our bathroom. Well, I did the repairs and unfortunately, tried some eggshell paint over the finish rather than the flat paint that was on. This is showing up quite obviously!!
I will now need to remove the paint from the 1ft x 1ft square area around both recessed lights, and repaint with the flat paint that should have been applied. I had originally tried painting over the eggshell, but that did not help--the shiny eggshell shows obviously when looked at an angle. I need to know if you know of a safe way (i.e., minimal damage to the ceiling) for removing the eggshell paint (and the one layer of flat paint over it) and repainting it with the flat finish paint.
Any help appreciated by this newbie!
