Repainting over flat white latex paint on drywall.


Sorry sdsester,
Pro Painter is right and you're wrong. I've been painting for 31 years now so I know. Propainter isn't snarky like you are either so I'd recommend that others consider that as well.

Repainting over flat white latex paint on drywall.


LOL, I have prepped myself to death, but I must say it has turned out beautiful for old paneling and new sheetrock. I now have another newbie question. I used the painter's blue tape and Behr and Glidden paint mixed from Home Depot. It made a flat washable base color. Around the doors and one spot on the floor baseboard, the paint peeled off down to the undercovering of the drywall. It peeled right off with the tape and it was like the paint and the tape were one. It has been rainy outside so I was wondering if this has anything to do with it? It is down to the bare wall only in a few places. It seem smooth, but I most likely will test sanding the edges or putting some kilz on the bare spots and touch up those areas. I am not sure about joint compound on those places or not. Help me out yet again. I am so proud of my efforts, but these goofs need to be addressed before I continue.Thanks

Chrisn, What difference does it make that the thread is 3 yrs. old?

Annibelle, Are you saying that you taped off the moulding around the door and then when you pulled it off the paint came with it? Perhaps it wasn't primed initially. I often encounter situations where the people didn't do the prep work properly or didn't use a primer over bare wood and then they have problems that they want me to correct but this can be difficult unless all of the paint is removed down to the bare wood and then start from scratch.

Repainting over flat white latex paint on drywall.


I know I did prime the area, but hopefully where the spots are were some I missed. In fact I put on two coats of primer-Zin. I could have not got the very edges right by the door. It could have also been still drying as it was damp here yesterday. Normally, I have used the heater and fan both, but yesterday kept on painting, etc. I will check it in abit and prime and paint touch up again. Thanks for responding. I never thought the old wall would have turned out so nicely, but I did do my very best prep ever! LOL. I just missed a few spots and it seems like it was mainly about the door frame on one side. I also see a shine under near where my brother had used silicone. He may put more there, but I don't see a need. It is not that noticeable and I did sand it before I painted it. Maybe I should prime over that one little section and repaint it. It is not that big of a job.

Chrisyn, Am I a feather duster kind of guy? Well, sometimes!!!

It depends, case by case. I never use horsehair brushes though as I think that stinks. Leave the horses out on the range where they belong is what I always say.

Annibelle, Always be sure that the caulk you use says that it is "Paintable" otherwise you'll have problems. :
