Door trim removed, how to repaint


Moved into new place that was freshly painted a few months back. Had to remove the small door trims to bring in new appliance to my laundry room. When the movers removed the small door trims, it removed some paint around it. So it looks like I have to sand off the hanging paint from the trim, paint over the area where the paint was removed on the main door trim, then repaint the smaller door trim. What about the nails?

Please advise. DEFINITELY new at this, haha.

Got a picture? Going to guess you mean the casing when you say small trim and the jambs when you say main trim.
The nails get pulled out from the back side of the trim with a pair of Channel Locks.
Lightly sand any chipped areas to level it out.
Prime any bare wood.
Then the paint. May need two coats to get it to match.
Any old nail holes can be filled with Painters Putty.

After trim has been put back in place, sand well, level any uneven areas, fill holes, caulk around trim and paint..good luck!

Normally scrape this off with a 5-in-1 tool or putty knife. If there is hanging paint from the trim, that probably means there's a slight depression on the painted wall (where the paint is missing) that will show up if you just paint over it. Fill this in first with joint compound (spackle).

hi there,

See attached photo here

That is the small trim I was referring to. So when they pulled it off, it brought out some of the paint. From what I am reading on everyones post, I think I perceive the following steps.

1) Scrape off paint from the small trim, use sand paper if necessary to lightly take off remnants.
2) Use putty on main door trim if required
3) Hammer back on the small trim
4) Paint

My question is with the nails, do they just go over the small trim and can be easily replaced? Then are they painted over? or how do those nails work? And if it is painted over do you have to speckle to cover nail head?

That piece of trim is called the Doorstop. If you have a finish nailer and a compressor, you can reinstall it with a few pops of the nail gun. Then fill the holes with spackle......probably a couple coats of it to bring the nail hole flush with the rest of the trim. Lightly sand, remove dust, spot prime, and repaint.
