Rough Surface Question Help Fast
I am new to painting an not a professional painter. We are finishing our basement and just had all the walls taped and primed. I tried using Behr paint in the bedroom (was a mistake) and put on 2 coats but when we brought stuff into the room we made scuff marks on one of the walls and I tried to touch it up and it didn't blend so I put on another coat on the one wall and made a mistake so I needed to put one more coat on. The last coat I put on I only let the coat dry about an hour and it was dry to the touch but it must not have been totally dry because it created a very rough surface (almost like orange peel) and the rest of my walls are very smooth. Because of this the paint doesn't blend and the light reflects different and looks very bad. I need to know how I can get this one wall smooth again. Will sanding work or should I just have my taper come over and skim coat the one wall since it is only about 10ft. I am not sure if sandingwill get it smooth. Will skim coating get it smooth again so it is the same as the others? I have carpet going in Tuesday so woud like to get the skim coat or sanding done so the mess is done before the carpet comes. I appeciated the suggestions.
