Default Primer mistake!

Hey Guys,
It's hard to make a mistake with primer, but I managed to pull it off. This project is in my garage, so I am using exterior paints.

A couple of weeks ago, I covered a brown wall in white primer.

Today I decided it needed another coat of primer to hide the brown even more before I apply the light gray paint.

After I finished up, I looked at the can I used. I used high gloss white paint! Not primer. I grabbed the wrong can from my shelf.

Should I re-primer? Or paint over the high gloss white?

Thanks,
Drew

If you managed to cover the brown you should be able to just paint over it with the gray paint.

What type of paints are involved? Interior or exterior, latex or oil? Inadvertently mixing and matching the two can cause problems at times, but it's less common with modern paints.

I had used exterior white paint (the exterior part was ok, it is in a garage). I ended up priming over it again and then topcoating with my grey paint. Turned out well.

Thanks,
Drew
