Best Answer

It's almost impossible to answer this because depends on the type of paint, the temperature, the humidity, and the ventilation.

At 70 degrees Fahrenheit and a relative humidity of less than 50%, alkyd paints generally cure completely in 3 days or so. Latex paints under the same conditions will appear to dry faster but will not completely cure and stop releasing solvent into the air for up to 30 days.

Likewise, how soon you can safely sleep in the room depends partly on your tolerance for the solvents in the particular paint you've chosen. Some paints are specially formulated with low or zero VOC (volatile organic content) and are essentially safe even while still wet.

Why your semi gloss paint will not stick to the wall?

Semi-gloss paint sometimes has problem sticking to walls that have a higher gloss paint type already on them. Usually, a light sanding and a coat of primer will help. Sometimes, semi-gloss paint peels if it was applied during high-humidity weather, as it doesn't dry all the way through.
