Oil/latex on paneling

Posted by vedazu (My Page) on

I have a room with good pine paneling that was painted originally with oil. Later, a painter (working when I wasn't home) put on latex, which is peeling in spots. I'm going to repaint myself, and want to know how much prep to do--obviously, it would be impossible to remove the latex on top. If I wash and sand lightly, board by board, then prime with whatever seems the best, will that do it? Please give me a suggestion for the primer. BINS? Thank you! I'm planning on using BM oil Impervo.

Peeling in spots? Over knots in the wood??

Is the sheen gloss or eggshell?

At this point, primer won't cure the problem.

If the sheen is satin or less, wash well with Dirtex and skip the sanding. Feather sand the peeled areas, level with spackle and sand smooth, then prime with the paint.

Apply two full coats of acrylic enamel.

RE: Oil/latex on paneling

Yes, peeling in spots, but not necessarily over the knots. It is quite clear...not too many knots in any case. The latex layer is eggshell.

Okay, Dirtex it is....thank you for your help!
