Spray paint not sticking


Any chance someone sprayed "Pledge" or something like that on them at one time?

NO steel wool, get some sad paper, start with 60 , move to 100, finish with 220

Something to be careful of with steel wool, must be cleaned very well before paint or primer any little steel particles under a water based finish will eventually show as rust.

Good luck with your project. I just finished painting my walls two weeks ago and am now planning to take on the doors and windows. I am going to do it with the plain ol' brush and roller. :-)
