Paint Thoughts On My Project


I'm doing this house over and I'm going to paint it(I'm not a pro painter) I'm looking for any thoughts or ideas. I have a Graco 390 PC. I'm spraying as much as possible. House is a Hodge podge of finishes. 1st floor is from the 50's and has wallpaper over sheetrock that was painted. 2nd floor is painted drywall, from the 70's. Any suggestion on best bonding primer, best way to deal with painted wallpaper, etc. I'm installing all new doors and basenoard on 1st floor. I'm painting existing cabinets but will be replacing over the winter. etc.

Re: Paint Thoughts On My Project


I’d remove the wallpaper in the one room, it appears as if the seams are lifting already.

The rest SW Extreme Bond.

I'll try removing the wallpaper but I don't think it's going to happen. I think the paper was put directly on the drywall and painted over. Thinking of throwing up a bunch of shiplap or beadboard.

A lot of wallpaper that won't come off gets sealed with oil base and skimmed. Any bubbles or loose spots get cut out first.

Re: Paint Thoughts On My Project


In fact, most old walls can use a good skim job.

I agree that the bubbling seams on the wallpaper could be problematic. I would try to deal with that.

Otherwise, I'd use Bullseye 1-2-3 primer. It pretty much works on everything.
