Painting Mirrored Wardrobe Doors but Paint Bubbling and Peeling

Postby DIY because i gotta » Mon Jan 22, 2018 7:59 pm

hi all

so, swapping bedrooms with my son seemed like a good idea, he has built in, mirrored, sliding wardrobe doors, instead of removing them and painting the walls and removing the shelves and replacing the carpet i thought i would paint them..

i did a bit of research, cleaned them and bought some spray coat primer...ok i admit it i tried to emulsion straight onto them, epic fail, the frames are metal and even though i have now removed the emulsion and sprayed them with undercoat primer the paint just keeps bubbling and peeling/flaking off.

i even tried painting the flaking areas with PVA but that didn't work either.

the mirrored glass has covered but each time i try to add another coat the roller pulls the paint off.

does anyone have any idea how i should proceed or even if this is a good idea.

many thanks
