How do I fix and paint bathroom wall and ceiling that is peeling?

Tiffany from Dream Design DIYWilliam


My bathroom has paint that is peeling off in all different spots on the ceiling and on the walls. How do I fix this and then paint it? Under the paint that is peeling is drywall. How do I get all the paint off so I can repaint?

    Moisture is the problem, type of paint. Scrape off the paint that is coming off. Sand and feather the edges to smooth everything out. Prime with Kilz primer. Paint with bathroom paint in your color.

  • Hi Kim,

    I agree with William as well. If the paint is old wear a mask for protection before scraping or sanding the paint since their could be lead in it. Make sure to use a high sheen paint which is better for a bathroom.
