Beadboard in my bathroom is not smooth, what can I do about it?


I painted new beadboard and trim in my bathroom with semi gloss paint. The finish is not smooth. What can I do now? I did not prime the bead board or the trim. I did put 2 coats of semi gloss enamel paint on it. It is not smooth at all.

  1. To address the rough finish on the painted beadboard and trim in your bathroom, follow these steps:

    1. Sanding: Begin by lightly sanding the surfaces with fine-grit sandpaper to smooth out any bumps or imperfections. This will create a more even surface for the next steps.

    2. Priming: Since you did not prime the beadboard and trim before painting, it is recommended to apply a primer now. Use a high-quality primer suitable for the surface material to ensure better adhesion and a smoother finish.

    3. Repainting: Once the primer has dried completely, apply a fresh coat of semi-gloss enamel paint using a high-quality brush or roller. Make sure to apply the paint evenly and in thin, smooth coats to avoid creating a rough texture.

    4. Sanding (Optional): If the finish is still not as smooth as desired after painting, lightly sand the surfaces again once the paint has dried to remove any imperfections.

    By properly sanding, priming, and repainting the beadboard and trim with semi-gloss enamel paint, you can achieve a smoother and more professional finish in your bathroom. Remember to allow sufficient drying time between each step and use high-quality materials for best results.
