Repainting attic room

Posted by lucille (My Page) on

Bought a tiny house and need to repaint the attic which the previous owners turned into a bedroom, walls are satin, great job, looks professional. While home was on market vandals broke in, partied, and threw around cans of stored paint and ruined about 1/4 of the room (And the carpet). I have a very close match in flat. Is just sanding ok, or do I need to prime as well?

RE: Repainting attic room

If the paint colors are similar, two coats of paint will suffice. If a darker color was spread over walls, use primer to block it.

The minimum I would do is:

Wash with Dirtex
Sand with #120 drywall sanding screen
Vacuum away the dust
apply two coats of paint

Thank you for the advice, the project should be done soon.
I had best not find out the kids responsible for this.....
