I recently painted my interior Flat White, Which was great. All interior pieces flat white. Which was nice at first, however the paint was having issues curing. And what have you.




So I am thinking of sticker bombing the problem areas where there are high activity, such as the top of the door frame and the build in door rest very like accent against the white, but was looking for some thoughts

What kind of paint did you use?

I, for one, am not really digging that color theme nor painting the door panels on trim panels like that. They are high activity, like you mentioned. White (esp flat or satin) is very easy to scratch or ruin, not to mention get dirty....

In any case. I would suggest, if you DO want to leave the scheme and maybe help protect the areas, buying satin/flat clear vinyl and cutting to shape for those areas and using a heat gun in the process for secure a hold. I am not sure how it will hold up, though.

* Might even be worth while to cover the loser panels completely in flat clear vinyl.

I did clear coat it, then I had it baked at a specialisty plastic place here. still no good, something with the vinyl in the door ive done many interior paint jobs never had an issues.. Thats why I am considering the sticker bomb.

My 2 cents - I don't imagine a sticker would hold up much longer than the paint, unless it was really durable. Odd that if you baked on the clear that the paint would do that. But, whatever you choose I hope it works out for ya.

When you say you're looking for thoughts, are you looking for opinions on where to put stickers, or opinions on the entire idea?
