Wrong paint used on porch floor - How to fix?

13 years ago

I have an old house with an enclosed back porch (unheated, 4 steps off the ground). I sanded, cleaned well, and primed with Kilz2. Then I used 2 coats of BM's High Gloss Metal and Wood Enamel (Impervex Latex).

I KNEW I wanted porch and floor paint. That's what I requested and the guy at the BM dealer suggested a high-gloss as that would be the most durable for this high-traffic area. So he grabbed a can and tinted it and now two coats later, I'm looking at the can and it says "do not use on floors".

What will happen? Will it peel and flake off? It looks really, really good! Should I sand it really well and repaint using the "Alkyd Porch and Floor Enamel"?

Thanks for any help.
