Default Painting the walls

Ok so my brother got a new house and there was some wall problems that needed painting. He got Dunn-Edwards Paint interior and exterior. Well he accidently used exterior paint on the interior walls then he tried to go over it with interior paint. It didn't work to well. And he doesn't know how to fix it. Please help.!

Oh and the exterior paint is Spartashield flat and the interior pair is Suprema flat.
Please please please help.

Never heard of those brands.
What were the problums with the walls?
Were the walls cleaned and sanded first?
If there was repairs done were they primed first.
Did not turn out well tells us nothing, what did not turn out well?
What was wrong with the walls in the first place?
Are you using water or oil based paint?

If your painting is not that old, not terribly valuable, or not too important, however, there are a few possible ways to make it look brighter and cleaner yourself. Before the 1940s, paintings of oil on canvas were frequently covered with a layer of varnish to add sheen and protect the thick layer of paint, called the impasto.
