I would like to repaint the ceiling above my landing, because it is full of brown spots and the paint is chipping, do I need to prime or chip the off paint first?
The house was built in the late 1800s and this area is right outside a bathroom with no ventilation. There is a possibility of lead paint in the house. Pulling off the paint chips may or may not pull off the plaster as well. I assume the brown spots (possibly some mold) are from water damage in a flood and from the bathroom.
