    I'm currently in the process of redecorating the living room.

    The final part of this redecoration will be repainting the door frames that our kitten loved to use as scratching posts. The result is scratches in the paintwork and an uneven surface.

    Could anybody suggest the best way to repair this? Would it be OK to simply paint over the scratched areas with gloss or will I need to do a little more work?

    For information; the house is a new build and has been built for 2 and a half years.

    Any help much apprectiated.

    Cheers

    Buy a tub of ready mixed fine filler, and a broad filling knife. Fill in the claw grooves with a thin coat of filler and sand down when dry.
    Buy Tibbles some socks for Christmas ;)
