I need some help and advice. I recently painted my front door (1 week ago). It was originally a wood stained door and I painted over it with a gloss paint. However the colour didn't really turn out to be what I wanted and I've decided while I have the time, I'm going to redo it, instead of living with it.
I know have the perfect paint colour I want. My question is, what do I do for preparing the door.
Do I have to sand the door, if so, which grit sandpaper and do I sand back down to the wood? Or just enough to scuff the gloss off and provide a key.
Also would you recommend to have a layer of primer or undercoat after sanding and then paint my new colour, which is also gloss.
