    Newbie to Diy and my first big big project to redo the bedroom / wall and woodwork:


    So after some readings and more reading – decided to go against gloss (oil base) and do satinwood (water base).


    Off to brewers tomorrow morning to get a small tin so to double check if I am happy with the finish.


    Question:

    • Any difference between these two product for white satin wood?

    I was going to go initially for Dulux but saw next door flat with a nice finish with that crown paint so tempted to try that one.


    Any alternative suggestions / challenges welcome.

    many thanks,
    Jeremy

    What are your plans for prep?

    If you want a good finish, you need to do a lot of prep - sanding and filling - before you pick up a brush. If there's any movement and there's cracks, you need to sort that out too.

    Hi Toria,
    plan for prep is
    - sugar soap quick wash
    - light sanding or proper sanding when bad previous finish or stain / mark,
    - repair any bit damage if any
    - dust with microfiber

    anything else suggested?

    Sounds good - use a new microfibre - a used one might contain silicone (polish) Brewers paints (Albany) over the sheds any day (y)
