Painting the Woodwork

Painting the Woodwork

Ho hum. By woodwork I’m referring to the skirting, the window and door frames (inside) and the doorways.

All of those areas will in all probability want preparation. By preparation I imply the next:

Take away nails and bits protruding, no matter they’re. Fill in any holes or cracks with a superb high quality filler, let it dry and sand it easy. Rubdown doorways with an answer of sugar cleaning soap and water, or scorching water and washing up liquid if you do not have sugar cleaning soap. Make ’em clear principally.

Vacuum. Sure vacuum all of your mud and bits so they’re completely gone. There’s NOTHING on this planet of adorning extra infuriating than seeing bits of stuff throughout your newly-glossed woodwork. o vacuum. If you cannot use a vacuum cleaner, ask your different half. She’ll know. If she does not, you in all probability will not be civilised sufficient to do portray. Watch telly as an alternative.

Utilizing a one-inch, a one-and-a-half-inch and even (max) a two-inch paintbrush, apply a superb, full coating of acrylic primer undercoat (dries quick) to all woodwork, utilizing easy, even strokes. Do all of the woodwork besides the precise door. We’ll come to this in a minute.

When it is dry (one hour on a heat day) do precisely the identical together with your high coat, which is able to in all probability be a white gloss. Clean even strokes bear in mind. Use sufficient paint to place a superb coat on, but when it is operating after just a few seconds, you are utilizing an excessive amount of. In truth, why not use one thing like Crown Non-Drip-one-coat? A unbelievable product. Cannot go mistaken with it.

When it is accomplished. Depart it alone, do not mess with it. any touching up may be accomplished when it is dry (about 5 hours in a heat room or no matter it says on the can).

The door is one other matter. I favor to make use of a mini foam curler and a mini curler tray and put a number of coats on. That applies to primer/undercoat and the gloss. Use a unique curler for various paints after all. Throw the rollers away if you’re accomplished. Wrap the gloss curler up in a plastic bag between coats. You may in all probability want three coats of gloss as a result of it does not go on too thick, however does give a pleasant end.
