Repainting doors,


Hi all. I am repainting doors. They are painted with oil paint. I have sanded them down, and I was woundering what should put on the doors befor repainting them. Should I plaster them? Or do something else? Open for ideas. .

Repainting doors,


I'm sorry I know your asking the question for a good reason But why would you want to plaster them? OK lets say there is scares on the doors but unless your use to really referbishing I would be careful. TSP rinse clean water and a good sand so the paint will adhear and paint with oil again.
