Default Exterior paint over Interior paint

The wooden threshold to our back door needed repainting and after a good exterior prime coat, my "other half" grabbed the wrong paint and gave it a coat of interior white.
Now what do we have to do (if anything) before we can recoat it with the proper exterior paint?

Just make sure it's clean, dull and dry. Then have fun painting...
