How can I repair or cover a wall surface of suede paint?

We used suede paint for our living room and found it not to be durable with children around. It shows scratches and is hard to clean. Can suede paint be painted over or what do you suggest?

What you should do is sand the walls lightly with a drywall screen (mesh sandpaper fine grit), and then prime the walls (tint the primer slightly to the new paint color to help with coverage), and then paint. With kids, stay away from a flat sheen. Use something that you can wash. Our slide show 20 Easy Home Fixes on the Cheap is packed with ideas for families with children.
