Latex Paint Over Polyurethane

Not a good idea to use latex paint directly over polyurethane!  The previous owners of my house thought it was a good idea, but not so much!  We’re repainting the door because the door looked like it developed a case of leprosy.

I get it – nobody wants to sand, but seriously if you’re using latex paint over polyurethane just take the time to sand and prime. Prevent the leprosy!

Although there was something completely satisfying about peeling that stuff up.  I have a friend who loves to peel skin from sunburn (Hey, Nic!).  So kind like that, but less gross. Just watch, you’ll see!

This is an el cheapo hollow core door. I want to eventually replace all of the doors, but for  now we paint!

What are some paint disasters you’ve seen?
