Repainting Interior Trim

Careful preparation and confident brush work are the keys to a professional finish

A professional painter describes the tools, materials and techniques that he uses to paint interior trim so that it looks great and lasts a long time. Included is information on prep work and primers, brush selection and techniques, and caulk, as well as a sidebar on how to paint over old oil-based paints.
