    Default Household chores

    I am doing a comprehensive redecorate of the entire house........well......at least I've started.
    I have some doors which are stained and then varnished, but, I want them gloss white, the question is can I just rub the varnish down and then put primer over the top or am I going to have to strip the varnish completely??
    Thanks.

    I would have thought if you give the varnish a very good rubbing down so the primer/undercoat has some good surface to adhere to then you will be ok. I think lime dipping might get the varnish off but it will be more trouble to take the doors off and take them to be "dipped" I don,t know how much it would cost, or you could replace all the doors, That is what I did last year.

    Just give the doors a good sand to form a key then apply 2 coats of white u/coat followed by 1 coat of white gloss, (oil based) You can sand in between coats but go carefull on the edges and make sure you dont sand through them (takes u/coat back off). You can use a 4" mohair roller to do panels styles and mullions then lay off with a brush to get rid of orang peel. P&D for last 26 years, good luck.
