Hi
I changed door opening and change door handle so had to paint door and frame. They were only painted once since installed 12 years ago. The work was poor so I had to sand down using sanders and manual started with 40 grit and then 120 grit.

1. I now have gaps in the architrave joints, shall I use decorating caulk and make it good with a damp sponge?

2. Is all now good to give one coat of primer and then paint?

I have to add door stoppers too.

Many thanks

I don't think I have ever used 40 grade paper, a little more sanding you would have needed a new frame. Yes to your plan, my only reservation is where the gaps on the architrave are too wide whether 2 part filler would be better a bit like how long is a piece of string.

I used 40 because paint quality aas bad, there were lines on the frame either from wood or paint so thought best to take it off and start fresh. Usually 60 g is good enough.

2 part wood filler should do but too much details to make it look smooth good finish I thought or would I be able to and down easily? I will try the decorator caulk and damp sponge to shape it so don't need sanding. They were filled, they didn't look good with lumps but crumpled and came off, I think it was filled with caulk and painted without waiting the caulk to set and dry.

Cheers
