+1 to Zinsser.

Someone recommended it to me for use over a shower where the paint was getting wet and kept peeling off. Zinsser seems to be much more resistant than the brand name emulsions I tried before.

It doesn't peel easily, it comes off in fingernail sized bits if you pick at it.

Don't know what I was thinking painting the walls in soft sheen paint.  Guess I must have been drunk  Grin

I'll give the zinsser a try.  Thanks dude Smiley

If it's pealing off easily you could possibly strip it off to be on the safe side. Otherwise I think you would need to apply a coat of either Zinsser bin or diluted oil based wood undercoat. I would try a small area first just in case it reacts with the paint.

Painting over bathroom paint

Next room on the hitlist is the bathroom, which is painted with a soft sheen bathroom paint.  What do I need to do to this to paint over it?  I'm guessing it maybe a latex based paint but not 100% sure.  It's kind of rubbery and in places where it has been chipped it can be peeled a bit like pulling dried wood glue from your fingers (something  I've always found oddly satisfying!)

I'm guessing that it is too shiny to just throw a coat of emulsion onto, but not sure it would sand particularly nicely either
