How to Paint Woodwork: Tips and Techniques | The Family Handyman

How to Paint Woodwork: Tips and Techniques | The Family Handyman

It's a lot cheaper to get this finish if you do the work yourself than by hiring someone else. If you have lots of spare time.
I had a few weeks of part time work one fall: got one wall of the garage completely redone. 8 years later, it still looks good. Much better than the job done by the 'pros' on the facing wall of the house. They didn't do near enough scraping and sanding. Of course, if they had tackled each board the way I did, I'd have owed them a small fortune. Vicious circle: when there' s time enough to do the job, the money is tight. When making money, no time for tackling big jobs at home.
