    Hi.

    I've had to sand down a ceiling in an ensuite bathroom, the existing paint was flaking off, and I'm wondering if I should now prime (?) the area before putting my main colour on?

    In the master bedroom, I've done a bit of repair and sanding, so do I prime those selected areas also?

    Cheers,

    Painting Newbie

    A mist coat of watered down matt emulsion will do. NOT VINYL. Don't use PVA.
