How do I paint a Threshold?

Postby ryan1uk » Sat Apr 30, 2011 3:51 pm


I am a beginner DIYer and need to paint over something but dont know what to use. I dont really know what its called either so i am going to try and explain it lol. Its very similar to a windowsill but its about 4 inches off the ground and leads to a conservatory so it will be walked over. I was going to use white gloss but think it would get ruined when people walk on it.

Thankyou for your time and help

Simply Build It

Is it bear timber? think its a threshold. Just a piece of wood to divide 2 rooms. Prime, Undercoat and a gloss the same colour as the wood work or stain varnish the same as the woodwork in either room.
