So, the guy that lived in this house before me apparently used a tan / off-white exterior latex gloss paint on all of the trim in the house OVER an oil-based paint without priming it, sanding it or scoring it.
Every time we brush anything against the trim, or molding, or the built-ins, it peels back in a rubbery clump.
I bought a sander, some Zinsaar 1-2-3 primer, and some ultra white paint with primer in it as well, and got to work this past week.
Starting with the nursery for the baby, the master bath and the kitchen I will be sanding down all of the trim, then priming and repainting it. Then the ceilings. Then the walls.
I think this is going to take me the first 1-2 years, since the baby is due in a couple weeks.
Any of you good peeps encounter anything like this? Have any thoughts on how to remove both the old latex and oil-based paints? I chose sanding because I can seal off the rooms I'm working in, and tarp all the appliances, and somewhat control the dust - versus chemical strippers and scraping, because I want to minimize the vapors in the air at the house.
