    If pine moulding is sealed and primed with BIN primer, is it okay to paint with wall emulsion as I want everything, walls moulding and skirting to be all one colour.

    I'm thinking of getting Farrow Ball paint, their modern emulsion has 7% sheen and estate eggshell for wood has 20% sheen but I'm hesitant about the difference in sheen levels and prefer everything one colour and sheen without any difference.

    Yes, emulsion is fine over BIN/wood.

    There is an easy way to achieve the same sheen level of finish across the whole range of different paints used.

    Good thinking...no cigar though.

    Think about it.....it's a simple solution.

    Well I'm no pro...only thing I can think of is giving it a light sand down after each coat....

    But then sanding down does reduce the durability of the paint to some extent. Anyway even if this is the solution sanding moulding and detailed routed skirting is a hassle.

    No sanding involved.. your overthinking.

    Decorators varnish over the whole lot. Do I win a prize?

    You win the prize.....which is setting up a Personal Forum Message System for @WillyEckerslike.

    Polyvine matt or a combination of matt and satin mixed together for the required sheen level. Luckily for you the bonus prize is you get to reply to any further questions from @DIY_Hans123.:oops:....;)

    Well that stuff is expensive if I have to go over every surface to get the same consistent dead flat finish....almost £60 for 4 litres.

    And wouldn't such top coat defeat the properties of the original paint like durability and anti-mould (F&B modern emulsion)?

    But if I can use the modern emulsion on BIN primed skirting and moulding....I'd be happy ;)

    The decorators varnish not only will provide an all over even finish but add a layer of protection over the emulsion painted timber which ....and have no doubt about it will get chipped very easily and soon look a mess. Personally I would have used 123 rather than BIN.

    Polyvine covers 20sq mts per litre.
    Forget Farrow and Ball take a look at Little Greene & Co or Dulux Heritage if cost is a concern.

    Well nothing is primed yet and have plenty of BIN primer left but any particular reason why 123 would be better in this case?

    Cost isn't really a concern but just seems a hassle going over everything again with this polyvine stuff after the mist cost, 2 primer coats on wood, then 2 emulsion coats over it all....I'd have my work cut out lol.

    If I go over only the emulsioned wood in polyvine, still a difference in sheen levels as this would be then be dead flat matt and F&B modern emulsioned walls would be 7% sheen....dilemmas :(

    Now I could just be overthinking this whole thing and this difference in sheen levels wouldn't even be all that noticeable....hmm

    Ask Isa No-idea Cox.

    You do not understand... the whole lot is covered all walls and woodwork. This would answer your question and provide an even sheen level to every surface..all sheen would be the same once covered with the decorators varnish.

    Sorry. It was a dig at the poster after the other time he didn't like your advice.
    My bad.
