We just recently bought our first house and we have our first DIY question!

Our house was built in 1965 so like many houses of this time period it has a window in the shower of one of the bathrooms. The trim had recently been painted with what appears to be a semi gloss paint. The house had just been flipped after being vacant a year before we bought it (just FYI).

Is there something that I could paint the trim with to make it more waterproof than it is now. I understand that it will require a lot of maintenance but as it stands now we have owned the house 2 weeks and the fresh coat of paint on the trim is starting to peel a tiny bit.

Would an exterior paint work here?

Thanks in advance!

I would sand it down to bare wood and use an oil based paint.
