Painting oak trim is a long, tedious process, but we wanted to do it right so it didn't chip or peel off. The guest room/bathroom started off looking like this.
We are sanding first, priming then painting three coats. I sand in between the first and second coats, but not between the last one. It has turned out really nice.
Now, I get to start trying to find furniture and decorations....Michaels, here I come!
