Painting Trim


I'm breaking this out since perhaps it is buried in the longer post. We're repainting the dining room/living room space.

The trim and wood work around the base, windows, arches, etc... I think it was painted glossier than everything else, but I have no idea what it was. I do want to prep it so that this painting job works though. Sand it? Someone mentioned a special primer or deglosser to bridge the possibly different paint types?

Advice?

Thanks

220 grit sand paper, Sand to scuff. Use primer, Top coat. There are short cuts, but that will effect your end result..........

If itís a high gloss finish then you can use TSP to clean and de-gloss the trim and then use an oil based primer then you can either use an oil base or latex finish coat with no problems.

Sand with 150 - 220 grit paper and use a latex primer. If adhesion is an issue, use a latex bonding primer. This is a very effective method for interior applications.
