Can You Paint This?

One of the more frequent questions we get is: can I paint this? The customer is usually talking about old, varnished woodwork or kitchen cabinets. Bathroom tiles that are very dated looking is also a common surface that they want to paint.

All painting projects, to be successful, require proper surface preparation and the choice of correct materials. Insl-X, a wholly owned subsidiary of Benjamin Moore Paints, is well known by professionals for manufacturing some of the best primers in the industry. Today, I want to introduce you to Stix!
