Painting stained wood to white


Yep..the homeowner wants to paint all the stained interior doors, windows and trim white. It's a big job with lots of prep to do...any tips on the process?

My plan is to sand (lightly) to knock down the sheen, fill holes & cracks, prime with an oil based primer, and top coat with BM Impervo.

Any short cuts out there?

Thanking you in advance for any ideas, tricks of the trade,,,etc.

You got it. Forget the liquid sand, waste of time and $, but be sure you wipe off any dust and clean well before priming.

Ebaygolfer, I'll second Chrisn, skip the liquid sand. Sorry DannyT. LS has it's uses, but not for this application, IMH(umble)O. However, I would give a good sand prior to priming, even though using a bonding primer. Clear coats have a tendency to mask a few blemishes that paint will not, like drips, sags, and grit. Get a good quality oil primer with good bonding properties, as this is the crucial step to long term success, don't skimp here. Putty and caulk after priming, or you'll find you missed a lot after the white primer highlights all the holes and gaps. I like using lightweight vinyl spackle to fill holes. Overfill the hole and sand smooth on the between prime/first finish coat sanding, then caulk. This job will really take time away from your golf game.
