    You will need a very fine sandpaper to rub down, a coarse paper will make it worse.
    Short bristle roller is best for flat finish.

    Thanks.

    Will I need to prime it again after rubbing it down or can I go put Satin wood on it?

    It's had 2 coats of the primer.

    cheers

    Should be ok to paint assuming you don't sand thru the current.
