Things You'll Need
Mobile homes are usually trimmed in a basic, cheap molding that is made out of styrofoam and then laminated with a thin sheet of plastic. Painting the molding and trim can give your home a fresh and modern look. Plus, it is much cheaper to paint the trim than replace it! Follow my tips to make this job easy.
First, you will need to tape off surrounding walls and cabinets to prevent getting paint on these surfaces. Use a sturdy stepladder to reach molding around the ceiling.
Next, you will need to prime the moldings and trim with Kilz. Apply a thin coat and allow to dry for 30 minutes. Apply a second coat and allow to dry for 1 hour.
Use the semi-gloss paint and apply a thin coat. Allow to dry for 30 minutes. Apply a second coat. Allow to dry for 1 hour.
Carefully peel the painters tape away from the trim.
White trim and moldings look great against a painted wall!
