    Hi,

    I am about to paint all my skirting boards / architraves in the house which look as if they have been glossed years ago and are now yellow.

    I have bought Dulux Quick Drying Satinwood and was told I would need to sand the existing woodwork to "remove the sheen" and I would not need to undercoat.

    I have spent quite a lot of time rubbing down the wood but do you think I should put on one coat of undercoat first just in case? Will this give better adhesion?

    Thanks.

    Bare wood needs a spot prime.

    If the sanding hasn't gone back to wood and you've just taken the shine off the gloss I'd not both with a UC, the old paint is keyed and stable so just TC.

    Thanks. I'll give it a try as it will save time. I haven't gone to bare wood just sanded it with wet or dry 240 and removed most of the shine.
