Painting varnished wood trim?
We are renovating a house with dated, varnished wood trim throughout. We'd like to paint the trim (BM White Dove).
Question: do we truly have to sand down all the trim throughout the house, or can we get away with painting over the varnish?
The guys who are refinishing our hardwood floors told us that we could probably get away with doing an oil-based primer followed by latex paint WITHOUT sanding, but I don't want to regret this.
If we have no choice but to sand, what's the best way to go about it?
