    Hello to all.
    Built a pine kitchen 5 years ago. Wife now wants it painting.
    I did the doors with the Ronseal Diamond hard varnish.
    The dog loved stretching and scratching his claws all the way down, hence the Diamond varnish.
    Have to say, there's not a mark on them. Same with room doors/frames done with same but Dulux white gloss. No yellowing after 5 years. I'll never use anything else now. Not cheap, but well worth it.
    As the kitchen doors are hard as nails, is it still just a matter of 120 grit sanding before painting?
    I'll be using Diamond white, covered with Diamond varnish.
    Dog's got a good 10 years left in him, so needs must.
    Thanks.

    They look OK but would they impede his painting technique?
    Sanding would be a nightmare for him.
    Plus, I give them 2 minutes and they'll be digested and left in brown/black piles in the garden.
    With glittery bits so the wife can find them in the dark.
    Worth thinking about though.
    Thanks.
    John.
