Painting ceiling, walls, and trim


Yeah...the ghosting. This hallway doesn't have it BUT I plan on doing the entire house with BIN or at least something that is great for stains, soot damage, and the like. No stains in this hallway either.

What grit of sandpaper would work best for scuffing up the walls and trim? I might just primer the areas on the trim that I have to fix with filler instead of putting primer on all of the trim.

Bin is way over kill for this. Zinnsers 123 would work fine.

Would Gardz be sufficient too?

Gardz is a fine primer- but because it is clear it is hard to see if you still have imperfections to deal with.

I do use it to spot with if I have it on hand.

As to using BIN, you may want to call Zinsser Tech department to ask if they have a product that will work instead of the BIN. They have some new things out now and may have a decent substitute.

Cover stain is good stuff.Might as well use what you have it will hide the stains but it is technically not a bonding primer.

Think I will just get the Zinsser 123 like chrisn stated. It was around $21 and change for a gallon at the local hardware store.

Since this wall was painted with a semi-gloss what grit sandpaper would be best for scruffing it up?

I contacted Zinsser and they told me that BIN was the only product that they have currently that would help with the ghosting.

I will probably stick with the 123 product though as chrisn stated since this hallway doesn't have ghosting.

Painting ceiling, walls, and trim


Ooooooook, I need help.

Upon further inspection of the trim I am finding a handful of dings. Typically from the floor up the door casings about 2-3 feet. Seems logical in those areas. However, I am also seeing where something... vacuum...was bumped into the trim and didn't dent the wood but took a small chip of paint out of the top coat of paint revealing the coat of paint beneath. I am "attempting" to put wood filler on these spots to fill in the shallow dent. The door casing I am working on right now looks like it contracted chicken-pocks from all the small spots of wood filler. Am I fixing these spots right? It seems to me if I don't fill these in a new coat of paint isn't going to fix them. I think I am going to need a quart of wood filler! I REALLY do not want to remove and replace this trim.

Also, there is quarter round on the baseboard that I am going to pry off (mostly likely replace). As you can imagine, there is this lip of paint left on the baseboard after the quarter round is off. I am not having much luck smoothing this part out - doing it by hand. If I use a palm sander I am thinking I can get it smooth - not sure if I can get it smooth enough to not have to replace the quarter round though.
