    I posted this in general however it is better suited here so apologies for posting twice

    I am about to tackle the decoration in my house, and i currently have oak/oak effect skirting and doors. I am not a big fan of oak skirting, and want to paint them white.

    My end product will be greyish walls and white skirting boards.

    has anyone do this before?

    What procedure is best and what products to achieve a good finish?

    Thanks

    Hi the key to a good job here is the preparation you will need to sand with sanding paper 80 grit will be ok the skirts (areas to be painted) then if you get any bare wood showing it could do with primer then your undercoat and finally your top coat a light sanding between coats will be needed
