This P&D seems to have achieved an impressive area on 1 litre (and a bit)
or maybe I'm just sloppy because I'm sure I'd use more.
Dulux say 18sq m per litre, well 12 doors would be about that alone?
Plus all the rest of the woodwork, Hmm probably me, maybe why I get runs... :cb

Maybe that's why it's not worth putting much on, back to do
it all again in a few years - Kerching ££ (Ooh that's cynical of me)
Still, it looks OK, not that I'm a fan of gloss, but it must
be on really thin.

Dulux say one door side, including the frame, needs 1/6 of a litre per coat, so those six doors should use up the whole 1 litre of gloss, assuming they are already undercoated, leaving none for the rest. He must be putting it on with a brush that’s virtually dry.
