    We want a cheap fix for our bedroom wardrobe until we redo it in a few years time properly.

    What’s the best process? Light sand for a key, primer (which one?)?

    Then can we use any paint or do we need a specialist one?

    So much conflicting advice on t’internet

    Thanks

    Oil based paint will yellow over time indoors. Water based paint will not but doesn't gloss well.

    Primer is a glue and no need to sand if the base material is clean and grease free. But you can sand if you want to. I suppose the more expensive primers are better glue, although this is only a guess.
