Hi, Looking for some tips and advice. Our current house has a lot of dark stained wood doors/skirting, it also has a dark stained staircase. Personally I don't like it, I find it dark and dirty looking and I'm looking to paint them a nice clean White. So....I'm thinking about painting it all, but not to sure where to start.. 1: painting the doors will be simple, but painting the frames and skirting will be tricky. Does anyone recommend using tape to mask the painted elements from the walls...if so what tape? 2: I'm thinking a satin finish would be best, but can anyone recommend a good paint. Ideally (unless someone tells me it's a silly idea) I'd like to stick to water based acrylic paints. 3: will a light sand and clean be enough, should I go further and take it right back to the wood (that would be a massive undertaking) or can I get away with primer first? Think that's it off the top of my head, if anyone can think of anything else it really appreciate it!
