Here's the deal: I replaced the planks on my deck last year with new pine
and painted it with "self-priming" interior/exterior porch and floor latex
paint. Of course you know what happened--as the snow came off the deck, so
did a lot of the paint. Yes, I know what I should have *done*
, but the
question now is what should I *do*
. Is it reasonable to scape off the
loose stuff and put an oil-based primer over the remaining latex before
repainting, or am I doomed to stripping/sanding off all the "old" stuff
before priming? I don't plan on being in this house long enough to enjoy a
super-quality, last-forever paint job (hence, my minimalist approach last
year) but I do need something that will last at least a couple years.
Thanks in advance for your opinions.
