Painting Trim
 
I have trim that was originally stained. Later it was painted. The paint is popping off. I want to repaint the trim. What is the best way to sand the trim before priming?

do you mean sand it to remove the flaking paint? if so, try a putty knife or chisel to CAREFULLY pull off as much paint as possible. is the trim baseboards? crown moulding? is there a surface pattern cut in? if so, perhaps Strypeeze first? we'd need more info on the trim or perhaps pics to help you more.
