Success depends upon previous preparation, and without such preparation there is sure to be failure.

Sand, clean, tape, prime, repeat… 5 times. It is said 75% of a successful paint job is the preparation, and there is a lot of it. Today was this first day of painting the interior, beginning with the first of many coats of Primer. We use Interlux InterProtect┬« 2000E Barrier Coat. This creates an overlapping barrier to eliminate any direct path for water migration and helps the top coat to bind with the substrate layers.

The final interior coat will be an Off-White with a Gray interior Sole, this should make the varnished Northern White Oak pop.
