IDIOT, I am. Painted Latex over Oil
 
on a set of bathroom cabinets this weekend. Painted 2 coats of latex, with no preparation, other than general cleaning with soap and water. Did not know original coat was oil, but I suspect it was because now, both coats come off in large patches with the wall tape.

Is there anything I can do to fix? Will it get better once the latex finally cures in a month or so? Should I wait and see, or go ahead and remove now before it gets stickier?

Iím sorry to say but you have to remove all the paint sand and remove all dust using a tac cloth then apply an oil base primer and then you can either re-apply your latex finish or if you wish use a oil base finish coat.

Thanks. I figured as much.

Should I hurry and strip now? What is the best way to strip at this point?

You can either strip the big pieces with a putty knife but round the corners so you don’t gouge the wood or start sanding. You can also try peeling it off by hand it should come off in strips.

don't they make that citrus stripper? seems like an easy thing to use in this situation. you could then just peel it off

You could also use a latex primer with latex finish coats. If you are worried about adhesion, try a Bonding Primer.

Started stripping last night. Peels pretty easily in flat areas. The molding needs some light stripper and/or brushing. Lots of fun.

WINDOWS-- you said I could use a latex primer. But I still need to strip first, correct? What is a good brand of bonding latex primer?

Thanks for the help all.

You will have to strip your current latex coats, give the entire surface a thorough scuff sand to give the next coats some tooth, and then apply your adhesion primer. I have using S/W Adhesion Primer and it has worked well.
