If this is not the appropriate location for this post I apologize and feel free to move it.
I am painting my basement and have a mantel and some trim to paint, all of which have previously been painted. I want to end up with a nice smooth finish and I want to get some advice on the best way to achieve this. Should I use latex or oil-based paint? Also, what would be the best way to apply the paint, roller or brush? Any other advice will gladly be accepted as well. Thanks.
