Whichever paint you can lay on thicker, brush the least, and does not run will probably look the best.


Better to put on two thinner coats (or even 3 with water based/acrylic) rather than get snots/dribbles and have to scrape back...

The point that occurred to me was that the window edges will have a thin covering of paint and will be prone to chipping with opening and closing, cleaning etc. I am not sure how well the paint will bond. Still not the end of the world to touch in occasionally.

Thanks for the tips.

I can say that I would strongly recommend anyone else doing this to use a micro foam roller 2inch version. Its so much quicker and the finish is far smoother than a brush!!

I am using the msp not satinwood.

Will post results when complete but looking pretty good so far

Will be posting pics of end result soon. Room is a bit of a mess and needs a final coat. Been letting the other coats fully dry. Think the msp said it takes a month to fully cure!!!
