I’ve asked a few friends this question and they’re not sure so I thought I’d see if you can help! When dealing with peeling paint when decorating a bathroom do you use a paint scraper to remove the flaking paint first before applying a primer, and from there apply the standard two layers of anti-mould paint? Or is there another technique that will get me better results? I’m decorating for an elderly neighbour and I want to do as good a job as possible for her. I just wondered if you had any DIY tips. Have a great weekend!

Amazing, I thought as much but sometimes you just need an outside pair of eyes on the situation. Thanks for replying and have a fantastic day!

It’s interwar I think? The plaster behind the paint looks super recent though, last 5 years I’d say. I think it wasn’t primed before the original paint went on. Thanks again for the help, I’m not much of a decorator but trying to help an old lady out

I have some fine aluminium oxide paper for smoothing/sanding will that be alright? The wall behind the chipping paint is already smooth af. Thought I could use the paper to smooth the border between the two? Thanks for the help!
