peeling paint

  1. Painting
    We bought our home a few years ago. We painted one room over the previous owner's paint-job, which is latex according to the can in the basement, with latex after washing with soap and water. I must have done something wrong because when one of my children got something on the wall and we wiped...

    I am scrubbing the baseboards in the bedroom in preparation to repainting them and then the rest of the room. I have noticed that in a number of places just above the baseboards, the paint is peeling. The room was painted about 10 years ago (by me) with latex paint and the baseboards were new...

    Hi ya'll! Just moved into a new home (well, actually older - built 1980, but new to us!) The previous owner painted latex over oil. Paint peeling everywhere! Crown molding, baseboards, window trim, staircase!, doors, and 3 showcase cabinets with lots of intricate molding. It's a TON of paint to...

    We had our kitchen recently remodeled and I asked the contractor to just paint it white. After living with it a couple months I decided on a color and just finished painting it. I went to remove the tape and the wall and ceiling paint are peeling right from the wall and leaving the raw drywall...

    (I've asked this question before, so please bear with me :P The circumstances now are a little different than the last time I asked) Here's the deal: my old wood-siding 19th century house is peeling paint pretty much everywhere. We've decided we want to get as much of the old peeling stuff...

This bedroom has three exposed walls (is the coldest room in winter and the hottest/most humid room in summer) and door towards the deck above garage. When...

    Hi! I sanded and primed an old dresser of mine yesterday afternoon. I used 100 and 150 grit sandpaper and a Zinsser oil-based spray primer. (Cover Stain) It was a very humid day in DC when I was working on the project. Much to my disappointment, when I checked on the dresser today I noticed...

    okay so here is the deal. Me and the lady have a house that the recent people did not take to good care of. We started doing the trim in the office and well.... 1st - we painted the trim and used some pretty nice high quality stuff. I do not have the paint in front of me but it goes on smooth...

    My husband did a good job painting the interior of our new home. Unfortunately, when it came to our built-in bookshelves, I don't think he primed over the other semi-gloss when painting with the new semi-gloss white paint. When we put the books in, the paint is peeling off in sheets. How can...

    Hello, I'm planning on painting my hallway. The paint is old and up near the ceiling it had large pieces peeling away (some of them 3 inches long). Not knowing how old the paint is I didn't want to sand it so I got up there with a utility razor blade and cut out all the peeling paint...
