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?

Painting Trim


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.
