    I am currently renovating my house and i want to paint the existing doors, i have emulsioned all the walls and has made all the doors and arch look very yellow.

    Am i correct in thinking its best to sand all the doors/arch down and then apply primer and then two coats of satinwood?

    Any tips on how the paint internal doors? whats the best brush/roller?

    Also only one of the doors the paint has flaked in a lot of areas (see pic) what would be a way to remedy this?

    All help and advice greatly appreciated

    ps i havnt mentioned skirts as i have installed all new MDF pre primed skirting so will just satinwood them after ive prepared all the doors etc...

    Will need an undercoat not a primer, one undercoat and two top coats, job done.

    See that is where it gets confusing. If not back to bare wood, and properly rubbed down to provide a key, surely 2 gloss(or whatever) top coats would be fine?

    Looking at those doors a dosing of undercoat would be advised after spot priming with Zinsser BIN.
    Unlike you to be confused MrHA
