Painting a 1927 kitchen
We are getting ready to paint a kitchen that has not been painted in something like 40 years. All glossy oil-based paint, and pretty certain to be high lead content.
As a result, we are not very excited about the standard recommendation to dull the surface by sanding. Currently, we are planning to do the following:
1. Clean painted surfaces with TSP.
2. Apply a liquid deglosser.
3. Prime with Sherwin-Williams Premium Wall & Wood Primer (cabinets will get several coats + final sanding to reduce prior brush marks).
4. Topcoat walls and ceiling with Sherwin-Williams Duration (semi-gloss).
5. Topcoat cabinets and trim with Sherwin-Williams ProClassic Acrylic (gloss).
Here are our questions:
1. Will the above plan work? The prior paint is in amazingly good condition and it would be nice to do a similarly good job.
2. There are some chips in the paint. Given the goal of minimum sanding of the original paint, should they be filled before/after priming?
3. What choice for a deglosser?
4. Any suggested improvements?
Thanks in advance for any thoughts!
