Sanding Vs. Liquid Deglosser Vs. Priming
I just spoke with my painter and he can redo the bathroom after his morning job but he says if he uses the Wilbond that he used last time to Liquid Degloss (says he used it on the trim in my house before he put the gloss over the semi-gloss on the trim), I will complain of the smell and my allergies. It is cold outside and there is no windows in the bathroom so I would have to use the bathroom fan and pin up my paper blinds in the bedroom to air it out. (I know I must commit to some kind of room darkening blinds but I am afraid to make a mistake on the color so I have not committed yet and it is getting cold outside so I must make a decision in the next few days.)
I told the painter I do not want him to repaint until after my 1-31-07 W-2 deadline. He says he is busy and will be in the area today and if not, then may not be able to come back until one month from now. He suggests that he can do just as good of a job by sanding with a fine sand paper product and then washing the wall down and then doing two coats of the BM Navajo White Semi-Gloss Paint. Or he says, he can reprime but does not see why I need to do that since the walls were painted about 2 months ago in a color that is light (Deep Cream by Ralph Lauren in a Satin finish) over a tinted primer.
He is going to stop by in the early afternoon to ask me what I want him to do. I really want to finish the house painting so maybe I need to put up with the smell or will the sanding give me just as nice of a finish or patience is a virtue and to repaint in a month when I will be even busier doing income taxes?
